Recently launched by founder Sasha young, Wright & Smith is a global forum for artisans and makers – wrights and smiths – who are passionate about quality craftsmanship and design
The site brings together a curated collection of pieces for the home from around the world. Designers such as: Chiara Grifantini, The Earnest Workshop and UNFOLD Guizhou all have pieces available for purchase through the portal, as Wright & Smith hopes to inspire customers to support artisans and craft-makers.
Another function of the website is to enable customers to commission bespoke pieces from some of the makers. Most of the workshops can cater to commercial customers as well as private clients, meaning that anything is possible.
“I wanted to establish Wright & Smith because I am passionate about beautiful design. I love beautiful things and learning about who has made them and how they are made. I want to discover the magic ingredient that takes something from well-made to exceptionally crafted, from useful to indispensable, from pleasing to beautiful.
“To my mind, an object's real value lies in the skill, the design and the craftsmanship that has gone into producing it. And this is what we show to our customers at Wright & Smith. We are here to help customers make an informed choice about their purchase and enjoy connecting with the people who have made it,” says founder of Wright & Smith, Sasha Young.
