Red Shed is run by husband and wife team Paul & Jo, who from their workshop in the heart of Sherwood Forest design and make a range of practical pieces for in and around the home, using Slate and Oak.
House signs, chopping boards, clocks, garden swings, a range of hooks and lamp bases and shades make up just some of their range. The materials are carefully sourced and selected for their quality, durability and character, with Slate from the Blaenau Ffestiniog and Penrhyn Quarries in North Wales and the Honister Quarry in Cumbria.
The business was established in 2012 after both Paul & Jo quit corporate life to forge a living for themselves. Since then the product range has expanded to what it is today, however, their approach to design is the same today as it’s always been; they like to create stylish, yet simple products that are pleasing to the eye, and above all, are practical in a traditional or contemporary home. They fundamentally believe that working with materials that have natural characteristics enable them to present their products in such a way that you can recognise the raw material from which it’s made, but equally appreciate the transformation from it’s original state.
They offer a Personalisation Service, as well as a Bespoke Design Service that enables the client to have their own individually commissioned piece made to the dimensions and specification they require
