I’ve been writing about handsome furniture recently, in particular a table crafted by the team at Young & Norgate.
The project was led by writing association 26 which paired 26 writers with 26 designers exhibiting at London Design Fair. Each writer chose a bespoke piece their designer was creating for the event, and wrote a 100 word response. The writing could take any form at all.
Living with Axiom
As a father,
Protective, he gathers his flock,
Providing shelter, without conditions or curfew.
Nurturing character in each of his kind,
He fosters their singular deep-seated beauty.
As a lover,
Entrancing, with subtle stories to share,
Forgiving of upsets, and generous of heart.
Loyal, and handsomely firm to the touch,
He invites his beloved to tarry a while.
As a man,
Dependable, spirited, strong,
Understanding his humble place in the whole.
While truly alive hosting laughter and love,
He stands peacefully still, and happy, alone.
And while Axiom lives,
Memories are etched,
Engrained with a heavy delight.
