FOLDING TABLE & STOOLS

Table : Figured Myrtle 500(Ø) x 560(H)mm. Feature veneer top. Stools : Available in 3 heights: 460mm, 560mm & 660mm . Shaped solid top.

The Folding Table and Stool originates from a design by Trevor Cottell. Rex Heathcote, who studied with Cottell at the London College of Furniture, made the table and stools under licence. Rex remodeled the design's by increasing the strength once unfolded from the flat  and added the spectacular veneer finished to the table, whereas the stools's have a solid top and a more ergonomic shape transforming the original design's. Since 1992 these tables and stools have become synonomous with Rex Heathcote Furniture.

Coffee Tables

To gather around in the main room or put your feet on watching tele.

A coffee table is such standard in the modern home. It can be a stand alone design or blend in with the existing style.

A shelf for those with a paper or magazine fetish, or a clean look, maybe a drawer?

Strong enough to sit on and sturdy enough  for that little person to grab hold of when learning to walk.

News

Well !! here I am back in the making business after a short spell doing other things.

I have renovated a small workshop in the heart of the historic town of Longford 18km from Launceston ( behind a bakery ...!! )

Longford is on the South Esk river in the Norfolk Plains, an agriculture area, with the Western Tiers on 1 side of the valley and the Eastern mountains ( Ben Lomond ) on the other.

The undulating country is great for cycling, and the views are spectacular.

I am very excited with my new venture, especially as I will be making the folding tables and stools again and experimenting with new designs.

 So I look forward to seeing and hearing from old and new clients alike.

Cheers Rex

About

Rex's journey into the world of furniture design and making started as a child in Launceston at his parents furniture factory.

This lead him to work and study the furniture making process in more detail in Europe as an apprentice/student.
Combining the older craft skill with technology to produce interesting decorative and functional furniture made from local and imported timber and veneer.
Exploring the amazing theatre of styles for all the decorative art disciplines in galleries, studio's, private homes and workshop's gave Rex a deep respect for the craft skills that lie at the heart of all these styles over the ages. 
Formulating his philosophy that " without the understanding of whats possible within the skill base of the making process the imagined concept of the finished piece will be limited or at best , compromised ".
Over the past 3 decades Rex Heathcote Furniture has become synonymous with beautifully designed and crafted furniture that has been exhibited and sold nationally and internationally.

Making pieces that will be the next "Antiques of the Future".
