G&T By Bethan Gray
Welsh born Bethan Gray is one of Britainâ€™s most celebrated furniture designers best known for her liveable, honest and warm designs. She first came to recognition when she was awarded the Habitat Innovation Award by Tom Dixon at New Designers in 1998 and has since won three Elle Decoration Design Awards for Best in Kitchen in 2005 and Best High Street Retailer in 2007 and 2008. Working closely with Matthew Hilton during his residence at Habitat, Bethan was made Head of Furniture Design before setting up her own studio in 2008.
Most recently Bethan has established G&T - a collaboration with Thomas Turner - and has also attracted the attention of major international retailers including John Lewis which carries the exclusive Noah collection, The Conran Shop, Liberty London and Lane Crawford in Hong Kong. Bethan is also a regular contributor to STYLUS, reporting on furniture intelligence and inspiration and is a visiting lecturer at Central St Martins.
With a passion for the warmth of wood and leather, as well as the appeal of stone, Bethan is inspired by shape, texture and detail, and influenced by her travels and the everyday objects that that surround her.
