Say Hello to Jardan's New collection: Studio

We welcome ‘Studio’ the newest collection by Jardan. A thoughtful collection designed to be practical and flexible in a home-office environment or professional studio. 

The collection offers a great range of options and and customisation such as different finishes and configurations. We particularly like the use of timber throughout the collection which brings much appreciated warmth, and the softer fabrics more akin to home furnishings rather than harsher, utilitarian materials often found in office furniture. These design choices bridge the gap between work and home environments creating durable and functional furniture that also looks beautiful and feels great.
