The rogue-designs workshop has arrived -

Well it has been around since February 2013 and here is one of the items recently commissioned by our client for their very large extended living space. It is a day bed utilising 2 very large cast iron and rubber castors and recycled materials that once formed their original kitchen flooring and also their roof timbers. The non-virgin wood was sympathetically brought back to life and treated /finished with a light oil containing carnauba wax mix for added longevity. The addition of white in the mix keeps the wood from yellowing.

The metal work was designed by RD to give that industrial feel. The hex head rivets on the outside continue with the theme. Due consideration was given to its place in the extension and as a consequence we went for heavy duty rubber as opposed to cast iron to stop any scratching or marking of the surface.

In its intended space!

The daybed cushions are made to measure with fabric by Ian Mankin, striped pattern and in an 100% linen for durability. On the one side of the daybed (footed end) is a holding bar for
moving the bed on occasions which also allows books/magazines to be stored on a day to day basis. With level surface access to the outside the design allows the piece to be wheeled onto the terrace easily for summer lounging.

Fully installed and in use!
