"ORIGINAL DESIGNS, INDIVIDUALLY MADE"

Red Shed is a lifestyle brand based in Nottinghamshire, specialising in a range of engraved slate and oak house signs, home interiors and gorgeous gifts.  We are proud that each one of our products is carefully crafted using a variety of materials, all of which are carefully sourced from British suppliers, and selected for their quality, durability and character.  Whilst we use some modern technologies in making our pieces, most of the work is completed by hand, using traditional methods that have been around for centuries!

Working with raw materials that have natural characteristics, enable us to present our products in such a way that you can recognise the raw material from which it is made, but equally can appreciate the transformation from it’s original state.  Our approach to design is simple; we like to create stylish, yet simple products that are pleasing to the eye, and above all, are practical in a traditional or contemporary home.

As well as producing from our own designs, we offer a Personalisation Service, so you can add a few extra special touches, whilst our Bespoke Design Service enables you to have your own individually commissioned piece made to the dimensions and specification you require.

 The images on this website are designed to give you an indication of what you can expect to receive.  As we use natural materials, variations in colour and texture must be expected.  If you are buying a set, i.e. slate plates we will match each piece as close as is possible.  All details within our control, i.e. inscriptions and fixings are accurate to each piece. 

When placing your order please bear in mind that each product is individually handmade, a factor which is reflected in our despatch and delivery times.

BESPOKE DESIGN SERVICE
IF YOU ARE LOOKING TO COMMISSION YOUR OWN DESIGN, MADE TO THE DIMENSIONS AND SPECIFICATION YOU REQUIRE THEN PLEASE GET IN TOUCH.  OVER THE YEARS WE HAVE WORKED WITH NUMEROUS CLIENTS TO HELP THEM BRING THEIR IDEAS TO LIFE.  THE PROCESS USUALLY STARTS WITH A ROUGH SKETCH WHICH WE USE TO PRODUCE A PROOF OF YOUR DESIGN.  THE INITIAL PROOF CAN THEN BE AMENDED AS MANY TIMES AS NECESSARY UNTIL YOU'RE HAPPY FOR US TO ULTIMATELY START THE MAKING PROCESS.  COMMISSIONED PIECES TEND TO HAVE PARTICULAR POIGNANCE FOR THE CLIENT AND SO IT IS A REAL HONOUR TO BE INVITED TO TAKE ON THESE PROJECTS

PERSONALISED PIECES
ONE OF THE ADVANTAGES WE HAVE AS MAKERS, IS BEING ABLE TO PERSONALISE OUR PIECES.  SOMETIMES THE PERSONALISATION IS VERY SUBTLE, SOMETIMES A LITTLE MORE BOLD BUT WHAT SETS THEM APART FROM ANY OTHER PIECE IS THAT IT IS TRULY UNIQUE AND A ONE-OFF.  PERSONALISED ITEMS ARE USUALLY GIVEN AS GIFTS WHICH IN OUR VIEW SHOWS THE RECIPIENT THAT REAL THOUGHT HAS GONE INTO SELECTING THE ITEM AND THE MESSAGE IT CONVEYS.  WE ARE MORE THAN HAPPY TO WORK WITH YOU IN PRODUCING THAT EXTRA SPECIAL PIECE, AND TO ADJUST OUR DESIGNS TO SUIT YOUR NEEDS.  JUST TELL US HOW YOU WANT THE FINISHED PIECE TO LOOK AND THAT'S WHAT WE'LL MAKE FOR YOU..........
