Design Profiles

Our Journey

Ever since Form & Function began in October 1980, our mission has been to offer you a very tightly-edited range of furniture designs that will add beauty and thoughtful function to your life, and will endure for more than one generation. We believe there is a trinity of values that holds equal weight when one acquires an object for the home – design, raw material quality, and the craftsmanship of the maker. In order to understand thoroughly the details of the manufacturing process, the source and sustainability of the materials used, and the values and ethics of each member of the workflow, we have limited our purview to very few product categories.

Our Partners

Our longtime partner, Barlow Tyrie, is a British manufacturer, founded in 1920, of what we believe to be the highest quality range of outdoor furniture worldwide.

We are very proud and honoured to be a partner of the venerable French upholstery manufacturer, Duvivier. Since 1840, Duvivier has hand-crafted a range of classic, contemporary leather seating that we believe cannot be bettered.

“You are either in your bed or in your shoes so it pays to invest in both.” There is truth in this old adage. We don’t sell shoes but we do make hardwood bed frames and offer a range of hand-crafted mattresses that are made of healthy and sustainable materials like wool, latex from the rubber tree, and even horse hair. We have much more to tell you about what we’ve discovered over the years!

Verus is our own range of totally bespoke hardwood furniture which we design and build in our own workshop to very exacting standards. We know of no manufacturer of any size that offers the degree of customization along with the unparalleled quality of our flitch-sawn Cherry, Walnut and White Oak cold-climate hardwoods.
