My Buzz

It's amazing to be part of an #SBS family. We were overwhelmed with the congratulations, support, network, brand awareness and contacts we have made in a few short days since joining. We are looking forward to growing our business and showing the world what Fun Furniture Collection can do.

My Bio

Fun Furniture Collection by The Art of Seeing combines a passion for motor vehicles with the love of furniture design, resulting in a unique collection of bespoke, hand-made furniture for children.

Fun Furniture Collection by The Art Of Seeing was inspired by our visit to Gaydon Classic & Vintage Commercial Show in 2008. Our passion for vehicles of all types combining it with the love of furniture design resulted in a unique fun and off the wall furniture collection all based around vehicles from all around the world. A small range launched one year later at the same show and now we are developing a growing range.

From our studio in Manchester we design and hand make each piece preparing our product for selling to diverse clientele. Our design philosophy is simple; we choose the quality materials and apply them to our design. We Maintain as much detail from the original vehicle producing a practical working piece of furniture. Our furniture has an eclectic range from Camper Van Bunk Beds to Petrol Pump Storage Unit.

As a qualified Industrial Designer of over 20 years Mark understands the importance of balancing aesthetics, function and cost. A discipline best demonstrated in his Gold Award exhibition stand design for the ‘The Conran Shop’ in London. Working closely along side Mark is his partner Llinos who provides excellent organisational and support skills to their growing company.

Parents out there want to have functional, unique and solidly made furniture with the ability to add their own individual touches. Every bed is customised to each child. Personalised number plates and all our products are available in any colour, as a full colour match service is provided.

Fun items of furniture allow children to be children and good build quality allows the furniture to be passed down to future generations of children to do the same thing. We hope you enjoy our design values and of course our furniture.
