Designated space sparks design

A loft dedicated to inspiring good design has been built by industrial furniture and interior concepts business Raw Possessions.
Business owner Dean Morris says clients and collaborators previously had to discuss their plans in the factory workshops, which was not ideal for many reasons including health and safety.
“There would be sparks flying everywhere while we were trying to discuss projects and we couldn't show clients a lot, so it was a much more verbal process,” Dean says.
“Now we have a calm space to show them all of the options and give clients a more accurate idea of the end result.”
The loft is located in the same lot as Raw Possessions' workshops in Silverdale and took four months to finish.
In the five weeks it has been operating, Dean says at least 20 clients have used it.
The space features various signature pieces by Raw Possessions such as a recycled timber feature wall and floor-to-ceiling wall art, as well as wood and steel samples.
There are also three planning areas with a blackboard, mood wall and a “think tank” work bench.
However, it is not all strictly business as there is a coffee machine on the way, a record player where clients get to choose the music, and a bar “for those appointments later in the day”.
