Theresa is a furniture designer and maker who was born in Colchester. She graduated with a BA (Hons) Degree in Product Design, and completed the Furniture Making course at the Colchester Institute where she achieved a Distinction and was nominated for a City and Guilds Gold Medal for Excellence. She worked as a furniture and piano restorer before launching ttdesigns. All of her products are excellently designed and personally handmade. She likes to work with locally sourced wood, to create simple, contemporary designs to a high level of craftsmanship. Her style also incorporates the use of marquetry with contrasting woods to add elegant detail to her pieces, inspired by nature and from my travels around the world.
