The new M74 store is our passion project to design and make the kind of beautiful furniture that we would want in our own home.
Our work celebrates elegant form, clean lines and considered detail, and revels in the unique, rich character of locally sourced native materials. We are always striving to design with a light touch and to make with skill and integrity.
The M74 store, at 74 the High Street Linlithgow, is our attempt to subtly evoke the woodlands which surround the workshop where our furniture is made, less than 3 miles away.
The store showcases a new collection of our furniture and cabinetry, as well as vessels and bowls turned from local timber. It also allows us to exhibit the remarkable figurative wood-carvings of East Lothian master-woodcarver David Robinson (my dad) and undertake bespoke furniture commissions.
We believe it's important that our prospective clients can touch and feel the furniture. It's a big investment - something you'll have in your home for a lifetime - and meeting and speaking with the designers; discovering the processes, provenance and inspirations behind each piece, makes it all the more special.
Marisa Giannasi & Callum Robinson
For nearly ten years the husband and wife team, who live locally, have run the award-winning designers and makers Method Studio - which creates unique bespoke projects in wood, leather and metal for international clients including Burberry, Land Rover and Johnnie Walker.
Their work has been exhibited at the Royal Academy of the Arts in London and the Royal Scottish Academy in Edinburgh.
The pair's design studio and workshop is located in the old Sawmill at Beecraigs Country Park - which they lovingly restored after it closed and fell into disrepair, in 2017.
