Richard Young 

 

Richard Young has worked as an artist, entrepreneur, vineyard worker, window dresser, barman, retail shop manager, landscaper, father, rowing coach, and he is a Commonwealth Games silver medallist in rowing. 

Richard has a proven aptitude for designing unusual-yet-functional pieces. He believes life is too short to live status quo and applies this philosophy when designing products for the home.

Richard was born in Torquay, England into a family of successful entrepreneurs and visionaries in the interior design industry. Richard's grandfather, Harry Dutfield, founded Axminster Carpets, his father, Alan Young, was a full-time potter, and his sister Sarah founded Sarah Frost Designs and Chilcott UK.

Richard's style is sophisticated, modern, and rugged. He is inspired by the work of Derek Jarman and Pablo Picasso.
