As part of this exciting initiative, Healís has partnered with British furniture maker Benchmark to produce an exclusive collection of English ash dining furniture, Cranborne, which is designed, sourced and made in the UK. The range was today unveiled in the window at Healís Tottenham Court Road by Healís Chair Will Hobhouse, who was joined by Dan Rogerson, MP Parliamentary Under Secretary and Dr Peter Bonfield, Chairman of Grown in Britain.
Will Hobhouse, Chair, Healís comments, ďHeal's has always been proud to support pioneering projects with a focus on craftsmanship, from Ambrose Heal's involvement in the Arts and Crafts movement to this latest collaboration with Benchmark. We are committed to working with Grown in Britain and the Woodland Trust to help grow a greener economy using the best local materials to create outstanding homegrown design.Ē
Dr Peter Bonfield OBE FREng, Chairman, Grown in Britain comments, ďWill Hobhouse and Heal's are to be commended for their excellent and innovative approach to providing a market for British hardwoods and the broadleaf woodlands they are derived from. Heal's has beautifully encapsulated the ethos and spirit of Grown in Britain which is helping to create a sustainable future for our woodlands and forests.Ē
Exclusive to Healís, the new Cranborne dining furniture by Benchmark comprises a table, a bench and an armoire. Crafted using solid English ash from the Cranborne Estate in Dorset, the range beautifully blends British-grown timber with a Scandinavian-influenced aesthetic. The journey, from sourcing the timber to the productís arrival on the shop floor, covers an estimated distance of 180 miles.
