The story behind Elliot and Zoe

I recently had a chat with one of my lovely clients who asked about the origins of the names of a couple of Anaca Studio products.
 
In June/July 2012, I was working on two new designs that shared similar style and finishes: a handsome coat stand and a versatile side table. When the time came to name the products it felt natural that they needed to come from somewhere close to me: family. Elliot and Zoe are my sister's children, so my nephew and niece. Elliot was 11 at the time, and growing up fast and tall, whilst Zoe was still little and much shorter than her brother. The names just seemed perfectly suited to my designs!

Since I live in a different country to my family back in France, the furniture I design often becomes an extension of them here in Australia. I think they're all pretty proud of that!
