#fabWMN – MELANIE NELSON AND THE ENTHUSIASTIC FURNITURE DESIGN…

She is one of the most energetic people I’ve ever met: full of ideas, always has a smile to share and definitely lifts your day up. Melanie Nelson is an Interior Designer with almost 30 years of experience, who restlessly searches ways of projecting various inspirations into a solid form ‘creating furniture and objects to be valued over time.’   

Melanie Nelson
  • WHAT DO YOU DO?

I’m moving towards developing furniture as well as interiors. I am doing mid range products that are both useful in homes and experimental and also creating a collector range known as AND Furniture.

  • IN 5 YEARS YOU WILL…

…be building my own house – or maybe 10 or 20…

  • WHO WOULD YOU SPEND A DAY WITH?

At the moment it would be Noel Fielding – it would be surreal! (Laughs) It would have to be in his studio, but I could only manage just a few hours. For me he is what arts should be about. I think he is hilarious, but most people wouldn’t like him. My hero in the design world is Paul Smith, though.

  • WHAT’S YOUR PET?

My dog, Sally.

  • WHAT INSPIRES YOU?

(Sights) Everything! Anything!

  • WHAT’S NEXT FOR YOU?

Launching AND Furniture Asia in Hong Kong 15th March. I hope it will be successful, so I can go on and design the next collection.

Invitation
  • WHAT WOULD YOU NEVER DO?

I won’t answer this question, because as soon as I say what I wouldn’t do I would probably do it. (Laughs)

  • WHAT’S THE QUESTION THAT HASN’T BEEN ANSWERED FOR YOU YET?

Apart from the meaning of life… When is everybody going to get it?

  • YOUR FAVOURITE PLACE IS…

I love London now, not always, but at the moment. Love the Highlands in Scotland, and I love the Sinai Desert.

  • DO YOU HAVE A MOTTO?

There are no rules.
