Another Country has created a range of beech and oak tables, stools, benches and desks modelled on Edwardian workshop furniture.
Trestle-style tables and benches have rounded corners, with legs and edges of flat surfaces coloured grey, red or green.
Textiles for blankets and cushion are made from hand-dyed wool in three colourful geometric patterns.
The collection is on display as part of designjunction at The Sorting Office, 21-31 New Oxford Street, in London's West End until Sunday.
Other products on show at the exhibition include a furniture collection by new brand Joined + Jointed and a set of wicker lights by Claesson Koivisto Rune.
Also during this year's London Design Festival, Another Country launched a collection of bedroom furniture for London retailer Heal's.

Another Country launches Series Three and Soft Series at London Design Festival
The blockbuster contemporary design show; designjunction, is back for another outing at London Design Festival 2013 and so is Another Country; who will be taking their place amongst the three floors and 120,000 square feet of contemporary design in the 1960s Postal Sorting Office in Covent Garden.
Another Country has a spectacular show planned for this September that includes the launch of Series Three, the latest collection of designs inspired by Edwardian workshop furniture, and a new textiles range; Soft Series, which includes cushions and throws. There will be some new adaptations of old favourites; new additions to the Pottery Series and a spectacular stand design besides.
Another Country has applied its extensive knowledge of producing craft-inspired contemporary objects to create a series of Beech and Oak furniture that is their most functional to-date. The tables, stools, benches and desk that make up the Series Three collection is intended to be the perfect marriage of traditional craft construction and contemporary form.
A trestle-style table base was inspired by the utilitarian and adaptable design of Edwardian industrial workbenches. The base supports a solid Beech top and the joint where these two elements meet is a decorative craft detail that is carefully celebrated. Series Three is an articulation of Another Country's mission to produce furniture that is efficient to make and to use; unconcerned with fashion and unfussy it is charming and hardworking. The rounded corners, thoughtful scale and splashes of colour – 'Chamberlayne Grey', 'Wellington Red' and 'Oxford Green' are the points of difference to note.
Beech is an underused but effective timber: hard, handsome, uniform and plentiful. Another Country is championing its revival as a contemporary wood in their Series Three collection alongside the equally beautiful oak.

Another Country is pleased to announce the launch of its very first textiles collection, which acts as a perfect accompaniment to each collection.
Another Country's first textile collection is something special. The blankets and cushions that make up their Soft Series are jacquard woven, meaning they could produce complex patterns, and are made from soft, hand-dyed, 100% wool. We worked with Scottish textile designer Ruth Duff and acclaimed weavers Gainsborough Silk to produce three different graphic fabric designs.
