About the Reids
John and Sylvia Reid's most enduring designs were those they created for Stag during their 10-year alliance with the British furniture manufacturer.
The Reid's first range of living and dining furniture, created in 1960, was the S-Range. It took its inspiration from the prevailing Scandinavian designers of the time and included low slung cabinets in teak with projecting ‘tab’ handles and V-shaped legs in nickel-plated stainless steel. This look and style has become one of the most enduring to come out of the era, with original pieces now being on-trend collectors’ items.
The S-Range was described as having, “simplicity of statement, and an intelligent approach to flexibility (making it) one of the outstanding furniture ranges of the year,” by Design magazine in 1960.
Nathan Furniture have worked with John and Sylvia Reid's son Dominic to reproduce these 60s designs to exacting standards.
