Scout & Boo create stand-out statement items of furniture by transferring unique graphics onto carefully sourced, fully restored mid-century modern furniture.
To accompany the furniture is a range of handmade Staffordshire Fine Bone China ceramics and art prints, all of which carry their bold graphic-led designs.
Having relocated to Bradford on Avon from London eight years ago, they are now fulfilling the ambition of having their own business, upcycling and making furniture, ceramics, art and homewares.
David (originally from Manchester) has a degree in Furniture Design and has spent the majority of the last 20 years working as a graphic designer and illustrator.
David’s wife, Teresa (originally from Norwich), is a Clinical Hypnotherapist. A keen photographer herself and having worked for a photography agency whilst living in London, her creative direction in both their products and in creating the brand identity of Scout & Boo through carefully considered photography with a clearly defined direction has proved invaluable.
Their combined passion for furniture and interior design coupled with the experience they have in the aforementioned disciplines have all contributed in the creation of Scout & Boo.
The company name is taken from the timeless, classic story ‘To Kill A Mockingbird’. Arthur ‘Boo’ Radley, the misunderstood neighbour of curious little girl Jean Louise ‘Scout’ Finch, would leave objects in a hole in a tree for her to discover; these objects were given with consideration and were cherished by her.
Their hope is that they too create objects that are gifted, cherished, kept and enjoyed.
