Wish List Garden Shed by Nathalie de Leval for Paul Smith

Bespoke furniture designer/ maker Nathalie de Leval has designed and built a garden shed for fashion icon Paul Smith.

Details: Measuring three metres by three metres, the shed is inspired by Luis Barragán’s angular style of architecture and is complete with a panelled glass wall. As with George Bernard Shaw’s famous writing hut, it sits on a revolving platform, allowing for perennial sun-chasing and making it the ideal room with a view.

Says Smith, “The shed is 3m by 3m, the same size as my first ever shop in Nottingham. Completely coincidentally, Matisse’s famous cut-out ‘The Snail’ is also the same size.”

The shed is a wish come true, part of the American Hardwood Export Council and Benchmark Furniture’s Wish List project that made a series of wishes come true for 10 design legends for the 2014 London Design Festival.
