Ben fulfiled a major ambition by designing for Ercol their Bosco range for kitchen, dining room and bedroom. It was a particularly happy collaboration because in the 1950s, Ben's father David also worked as a designer for the iconic British furniture manufacturer.
Ben first designed a sturdy, no-nonsense oak dining table, chair and sideboard in his Sonoma range for Marks & Spencer back in 2004. Sonoma has since become a bestselling range, containing dozens of products for every room in the house, one of which is awarded a coveted Design Guild Mark.
Initially commissioned by Willis & Gambier, Ben's bestselling Monteray range consisting of over 20 elegant oak furniture pieces for kitchen, lounge and bedroom was soon bought by the major retailer John Lewis.
For a limited time, Ben's Sonoma range for Marks & Spencer was also available in Sonoma Dark, with a deep, stained finish.
Also for Marks & Spencer, Ben designed the elegant glass-topped Jasper table works in two sizes and both solid oak or walnut legs.
