From his Glasgow studio, woodworker Derek Welsh fashions craft-oriented modern furniture and bespoke interiors projects. At designjunction, a contemporary showcase at the London Design Festival, Welsh will exhibit a series of handmade pieces rendered in natural oak with laminate accents. "Graft is a new collection of modern utility pieces that are understated and confident in their simplicity," says Welsh in a written statement. The range includes a desk, table, sideboard, low bench, and shelving. Let's have a look.

The effortless oak framework, with two concealed drawers, is balanced perfectly alongside the warmth and practicality of the uncluttered desk top linoleum surface," says Welsh." ($2,627)
