They Say Left-handers are More Creative

Chris Byrne of Left Hand Make launches the ’Small One’ range

They Say Left-handers are More Creative


February 27th, 2008

He’s passionate about furniture design. He’s got a kid. And he’s left handed. All these characteristics give his designs that little bit extra cachet.

Chris Byrne (pictured) of Sydney based furniture studio, Left Hand Make, knows what families want from their furniture.

The new ’Small one’ range of chairs and tables are children’s pieces that offer a quality alternative to the grim monotony of bright coloured pinewood.

Organic curves invite safe play and will delight design conscious parents.

Made from birch plywood harvested from sustainable, managed forests, the furniture is built to last – yet affordable, so all the boxes are ticked.

The Left Hand Make team is made up of Chris, his wife Amanda, and their biggest design inspiration – daughter Ava. It takes a family to know what a family needs.
