Where and what did you study and what year did you graduate?
Certificate III Furniture Making, 2001, South West Regional College of TAFE.

Where did you head after graduating?
In 2005, I was the recipient of an Australian Overseas Foundation Scholarship. This scholarship allowed me to complete a year traineeship at the Edward Barnsley workshop from 2005 to 2006.

When did you launch your own business?
In September 2007.

What motivated you to start your own business?
A drive to be independent and a chance to address what I saw to be lacking in most of today’s furniture. I felt that the individually made pieces lacked a contemporary aesthetic and the commercially designed and produced were getting more impersonal.

How would you describe your business to someone who didn’t know you?
My business is a small furniture design and manufacturing business that produces high end, limited edition and bespoke pieces.

How would you describe the products you design to someone who hadn’t seen them?
I produce individually made, luxury, contemporary furniture. Each product is elegant, delicate, graceful and design driven with a craft-based approach to the making.

What inspires your design projects?
The natural environment and my local area give me a lot of inspiration. My work is also inspired by contemporary design and modern architecture. The making is very much inspired by English craft furniture.

What are the next steps for you?
I want to spread the word, get people excited about my work and drive things forward. In the future, I want to employ and educate other designers and build an innovative inspiring business.

Nathan Day received a scholarship from the State Government of Western Australia through the Department of Culture and the Arts to participate in Springboard Stage One.
