Furniture in Architecture:
The Work of Luke Hughes

This is the first survey of Luke Hughes’s enduring and meticulously engineered furniture, which is at the forefront of the craft-led renaissance in British manufacturing. Hughes’s furniture serves as an eloquent response to the architecture and is a reflection of the true Arts & Crafts spirit. The company’s work furnishes many of the world’s most distinguished buildings, from the Yale School of Management and Congregation Beit Simchat Torah Synagogue in New York to Westminster Abbey, the Tower of London, Oxford and Cambridge colleges, and Keystone Academy in Beijing. Two years in the making, this lavishly illustrated book presents the best of this illustrious furniture company’s creations through 25 case studies.
