About

 

 

 

I’m Laura and he’s George. Or I’m George, and she’s Laura. Together we are barebones. When we moved into our first house we wanted to fill it with furniture we loved that would suit our style, needs and space limitations, but we couldn’t find anything that ticked all our boxes. So, we decided to make it ourselves.

We are a product designer and a furniture designer. One of us brings the style, and the other brings the wood (and makes the tea). Luckily for us, our new home had a basement, and now a little workshop, where we could finally bring our ideas to life (as long as they fit up the stairs). After a few months of sketching, prototyping, re-prototyping and re-re-prototyping we are finally happy to release three of these products into the world, and that is what we are offering to you here...

This attractive-looking block has a secret… it is jam-packed with magnets that can securely hold any of your ferrous items and, with the help of our brass TABS, smaller non-ferrous items as well.

  

 

  

 

 

It can help organise your kitchen, bathroom, bedroom, office, workshop, hallway and garage in a never-ending combination of uses. 

 

 

At first glance you could mistake these guys for twins, but they are really more like cousins, they may look the same, and they do share a shelf in common, but they have their differences. 

HOOK allows you to proudly display your possessions underneath using 3 concealed pegs.

 

 

 

HIDE allows you to store things neatly inside and would make an ideal bedside companion.

 

 

They also have another bigger relation, BIKE. This is very similar to HIDE except that we have extended the length and added a bump so that you can securely display your favourite mode of transport in pride of place.

 

 

 

 

This table will always be by your side, and is so helpful it can double as a stool. It has asymmetric storage to hold your reading material of choice or anything else you like.

  

 

 

We have mentioned our home workshop before, but it is just not big enough to have more than one product (or person) in at a time so we have been relying on the kindness of others to use their workshop spaces at the weekend. 

This is frustrating as it limits the amount of time we can spend on barebones, whilst both working in full-time jobs. We would use your funding to get some workshop space of our own, buy materials and upgrade machinery to grow our business into a fully-fledged brand, and offer a much wider range of products.

 

 

Our vision is to grow barebones into a furniture, product and homeware brand that we can develop full-time; we have sketch books full of ideas ready to make, spanning every room of the house and outdoors as well. Also,we would love to offer bespoke sizes as well as colours. As a start to this, we would like to offer any of our products in the perfect size for you so, if you are interested, please get in touch. We will do whatever we can to make it a perfect fit - just for you.

If you have any questions, would liike to see a different colour or are interested in a bespoke order please email us at hello@wearebarebones.co.uk.

 

 

 

 

  

 

 

 

 

  

 

Risks and challenges

One of the things that is very important to this project is finding some suitable workshop space. We have a few in mind but if this process takes longer than expected this would have a knock-on effect on our delivery dates; we will of course keep you posted throughout about any delays.

We have spent a long time working on these five products and they have been through many iterations so we have already encountered and solved many of the potential problems, as product and furniture designers this is what we do every day so we feel we are in a strong position to deal with whatever comes our way.

Whilst we are confident we can deliver our early bird products to the given timeline, depending on the success of the project, the delivery dates for the second batch could be delayed; we will send you regular updates and will get your barebones order to you as quickly as we can.
