We have translated ocean’s movement into a texture that would cleverly break up a surface and reflect light in an intriguing way. The texture was inspired by the traditional chip carving marks created by hand for centuries, however, we generated it using algorithms and 3D digital software.

The collection features three designs inspired by the sentiment found in the quote by John Makepeace, under whose tuition Silverlining’s founder – Mark Boddington – honed his furniture-making skills:
