Art in the Home Confirmed Artist - Anna Childs
Wanting an alternative to traditional ‘brown’ furniture or the kind of generic white flat pack stuff that nobody really cares for? Then look no further than Anna Childs whose use of Valchromat (a high performance wood fibre panel that comes in lots of lovely different colours) in her signature leaning shelf unit means that you can have a splash of aubergine, orange and petrol-blue with your sustainably sourced oak. “My leaning shelf design has gone through quite a few developments since it was first shown at Sheffield's Millennium Gallery over the Autumn of 2016,” says Anna of her oh-so-clever design. “It's now available in a bigger version and the colour selections are more varied.”
If your preference should be for horizontal (rather than vertical) storage, Childs also has that sorted: a slim, hanging cupboard with a sliding door that takes up no space at all. “I’m happy to make these to meet a client's preferences,” Childs says, keenly aware that today’s customer wants something that is unique to them. “It takes the whole design process to another level.”
Take the opportunity to view Anna’s work as part of our Art in the Home Exhibition from the 1st - 10th November 2019 at Kommune in Sheffield city centre. Art in the Home is a selling exhibition of Mid-Century design classics brought to you by Studio 2021 mixed with the very best of Sheffield’s furniture makers, ceramicists and fine artists.
