Tide Design, Melbourne, was established in 2007 by furniture designer and maker, George Harper. Functionality and simplicity are guiding principles at Tide, along with the belief that detail plays a key role in the overall aesthetic of a piece. Harper draws inspiration from 1950’s design, when the strict modernism of earlier years took on a softer, more organic feel. Harper is committed to producing the highest quality, handmade, contemporary pieces, where the design is considered, well resolved and individual. Each piece is designed and built to provide an enduring appeal.
