Heather Scott

Furniture Maker

Falmouth, Cornwall


Woodwork, metalwork, design


£90 — £2200


From moments of inspiration drawn from real people and real life, to the playful interaction of materials, Heather Scott imagines and engineers contemporary furniture and homeware products, that are made to be used, time and time again. 

Produced in Cornwall, each piece echoes the simple beauty of Japanese and Dutch design, influenced by her family roots in Netherlands. It’s all in the detail. The craftsmanship. The honesty. And the functionality of products that make more of your everyday.
