X-Materiality is a collaboration between TSAR x Byzantine Design x LUKE Furniture as a result of various installations displayed in the TSAR Carpets showroom and Luke Furniture showroom, both located on High Street in Windsor.

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.

These design choices bridge the gap between work and home environments creating durable and functional furniture that also looks beautiful and feels great.
