Welcome to Heal's
Integrity, elegance, longevity and a passion for wood are the core elements that make Kay+Stemmer's contemporary furniture so deeply pleasing. They are intuitive designers with a proven track record in creating covetable designs that fit perfectly into people's lives and homes.
Their pedigree can be traced back to John Makepeace's renowned Parnham College in Dorset where they both studied fine cabinet making and furniture design. Their first collaboration was for exclusive ranges of bespoke furniture for luxury hotel Cowley Manor, which was then followed by public and private commissions and designs for retail.
The elegance and endurance of their furniture belies the intense creative process of scrutiny, refinement and authentic use of materials and techniques. Which is why a Kay+Stemmer piece feels both contemporary and timeless.
Kay+Stemmer were commissioned through our Heal's Discovers project in 2006 to design their first retail furniture range and created Flow, a range of aptly named organic-styled forms, reminiscent of 50s design. The contemporary furniture collection includes the Flow Desk, Flow Nesting Tables, Flow Bookcase and Flow Sideboard, made of walnut and oak and all featuring flowing curves. The Flow Sofa, which forms part of our Heal's ReDiscovers collection to celebrate our Bicentenary, was added to the range in 2009.
Kay+Stemmer's most recent designs for Heal's are the Stride range, a dining table, dining chair and home office desk, all inspired by Christopher Heal's utility furniture of the 1950s. These pared back designs with meticulous detailing bring a contemporary elegance to any home.
