Kate Noakes

Kate Noakes is a designer and maker whose work combines finely tuned craftsmanship with a bold design instinct. From her workshop in Suffolk, Kate creates beautifully made one-off pieces, usually to commission, by veneering existing furniture that she has reconditioned and often remodelled. She uses a process she has developed of inlaying designs cut from sheet metal with gesso to striking effect. Kate's furniture is durable, functional and dynamic and sits comfortably in both contemporary and traditional settings.
