Turner Furniture reflect on 2020

Turner Furniture are winding down for the festive season but we wanted to take this opportunity to thank all of our customers who have supported us throughout 2020, and think back on some of our big achievements.

We started the year getting our name out there with an interview for Glasgow Live that told the story of our founder Chris Turner. This was a fantastic opportunity to bring awareness of our brand to their thousands of readers, and to let people get to know Chris a bit better!

Following this, we collaborated with the guys over at CutMustard TV to film some of our recent projects including The Library Room and The Wine Room. We hope to continue this in the New Year, giving our customers another opportunity to see our quality handcrafted furniture in action and get a sense of the scale of projects we can undertake! If you haven’t already checked them out, head over to our Youtube page to see.

We’ve got big plans in 2021, but for now we’re feeling grateful for the support of our customers this year and the opportunities we’ve had. We’re sure you’ll be well aware of how hard this year has been on independent businesses and artists, and it’s only with the continued backing of our customers that we’ve been able to thrive. So thanks to each and every one of you, and have a great Christmas!

Turner Furniture goes vegan in Ampersand Chocolate Project

Intrigued? Why wouldn't you be! Mid 2019, Turner Furniture was asked to be part of a limited edition chocolate bar project with artisan chocolatier CoCo. Project Ampersand, is an exciting collaboration initiated by Scottish beer brewery, Innis & Gunn where they challenged CoCo to create a unique product inspired by their ‘The Original’ beer barrel-ageing process. They collaborated with Turner Furniture along with two other talented independent artists who each created original artworks which were showcased on the packaging of three limited-edition chocolate bars.

CoCo Chocolate Bar featuring Turner Furniture commissioned artwork

Chris Turner, Turner Furniture, says, "It was a privilege to be part of this unique project and a personal honour to have been chosen from hundreds of artists in Scotland. The merging of the flavours, colours, processes and artwork have come together to create something really quite special."

Turner Furniture was commissioned for the 'Smoked Coffee' limited edition bar (which also happens to be vegan and gluten free) and he was inspired by the Innis & Gunn ‘barrel into beer’ process, which involves toasting the barrel pieces before immersing and maturating in the beer in order to achieve the desired flavour. Chris based the design of ‘Barrel Aged Smoked Coffee Dark Chocolate' on Turner Furniture’s signature geometric parquetry style. The result is a unique design that celebrates everything that’s inside the barrel, in an abstract narrative made of different woods that reflect both the beer and the chocolate.
