The Ridge collection is inspired by the nostalgic forms of the corrugated iron sheds that shape the Australian rural landscape. Each piece features the seamlessly formed faceted bases which the collection is known for.
The new dining table and console are a celebration of richer materials and colour; marble and American oak timber tops paired with a bolder, more luscious colour palette of cranberry, raspberry and black stain, signal a new look for us and our internationally acclaimed feature collection. Both the new additions to the Ridge family were developed after ongoing demand to expand the collection.
The Ridge dining table is a new take on the classic round table that is equal parts beauty and function – an investment piece that will also withstand the rigours of daily use. The design of the Ridge console is based on the best-selling Ridge bench seat, with dramatically scaled-up columns.
With a focus on clean, sophisticated and modern design, we are imagining and building the furniture that we hope are destined to become our future classics.
We place a very strong emphasis on sustainability in our design and production process. Our timbers are all sustainably sourced from FSC certified suppliers and each piece is designed to maximise the use of the material and minimise wastage with the majority of wastage being recycled into other pieces. We also work with other local businesses to recycle their unused materials and divert them from landfill. We are fortunate enough to be operating in a manufacturing hub in Preston and have witnessed the amount of useable materials being thrown out first hand and saw an opportunity- a lot of these salvaged materials are now used to construct the internal structures of the Ridge Collection.
When shooting the collection we knew we wanted to present it in an entirely new way, we had long been admirers of Bek Sheppard’s sleek minimalist approach and wanted her take on the collection. Bek has kindly given us a little insight into how she developed the art direction and styling of the collection:
“It was refreshing for me to see a young brand experimenting with such vibrant colour alongside classic material finishes” said Bek.
“Bold colour play, 80s modernism and current trends inspired the creative directive. When photographing we wanted to make sure that design features unique to Ridge were highlighted and showcased within a stylised but realistic setting”.
The Ridge Dining Table is available in both 1200mm and 1500mm sizes as standard and custom upon request. The Console is available in 1500mm length.
