stainless steel & reclaimed oak coffee table

pachadesign are glenn rushbrooke and samantha robb.
we are a design/make partnership based in welcombe on the north coast at the border of devon & cornwall, specialising in contemporary furniture & accessories from locally sourced reclaimed & natural
resources. the word pacha, meaning green/pure, was chosen to
represent our eco-friendly attitude & our passion for using materials
often seen as waste.
much of our work evolves from a simplistic approach to design and the materials that we use, combining pared down aesthetics with the japanese view of wabi sabi, beauty in imperfection.
we are very much inspired by the natural state of decay & rawness of
oak, slate & metal, yet use these materials to produce pieces with
clean lines & a modern feel.
we like simple, uncomplicated design. we are not led by trends.
our work is understated, often with an asymmetrical marriage of
materials. this simplicity ensures that the materials play a major
part in the overall appearance, resulting in the pieces working well in
modern minimalist spaces as well as more rustic environments.
very much aware of the amount of waste that is produced by society &
industry inspires us to re-use these discarded materials for our small
batch pieces & one-off designs.
all pieces are designed & made by us in our small workshop in
welcombe on the north devon coast.
