For those not familiar with Jonathan Saunders, the London-based design studio that has been making a name for itself since 2001. Jonathan Saunders defines themselves by using technology and innovation to create objects of beauty with a high level of craftsmanship. With a passion for furniture, they identify as "creators of custom made designer furniture pieces." They also pride themselves on the fact that they're "not just anything; we are designers, craftsmen and makers of beautiful furniture."

In 2005 Saunders created their 'Signature' collection, which included several iconic designs such as the Malta sideboard . This particular design has been made seven times in order to accommodate changes in the design concept while keeping the look recognizable.

Despite being known for their furniture, Jonathan Saunders has also ventured into ergonomic seating where they've had success with the 'Trestle Table' (made in 2005), an award-winning chair that was first created as a limited-edition prototype. 

Jonathan Saunders was founded by Jonathan Saunders, a British designer who attended Camberwell School of Arts and Crafts. Saunders then went on to study at the Royal College of Art in London where his passion for furniture began to blossom. He graduated from college in 1991 with an MA in Furniture Design and he has been working as a freelance designer ever since.

While he worked as a freelance designer Saunders designed numerous products such as Ercol furniture and accessories for the American market, which included popular items such as their “Torero” chair (1993). He also created designs for companies including Eames Office, FontanaArte, Habitat group and Habitat Design Company.

Today Jonathan Saunders is essentially a design studio as they create custom-made pieces for both domestic and commercial settings. Although not all of their projects are produced, it does give them the freedom to experiment with different materials and ideas. 

The metal-framed “Flood Chair” and wooden “Flood Screen” are two of the most recent additions to Jonathan Saunders’ furniture collection. Made from tubular steel, this chair has a simplistic design and is often used as an indoor/outdoor piece. The “Flood Screen” consists of wooden slats that are bent to form the shape while retaining its natural color.
