Australian Vogue, The Sunday Times and The Guardian have all featured Scottish furniture designer Angus Ross and at the end of 2012 he exhibited in Chicago with Craft Scotland.
Angus knew his career move, from designing products for Boots and Mothercare, including their potties, to furniture design was meant to be when he found premises in Aberfeldy that had been used as a wood workshop since 1880. Much of his work is by private commission but as he said in an interview with The Independent, ‘I’m aware that not everyone has squillions in the bank so I introduced a range that minimises the complexity and intensive labour but is still aesthetically pleasing.’ As far as sourcing raw materials goes, co owning a 55 acre woodland close to his workshop certainly helps. You can visit his shop and workshop by appointment and he opens his doors during Perth Open Studios every September.
Angus has often been commissioned to create public art and pictured above and below is a fishing platform he produced in Canterbury.
