Bethan Gray combines a passion for luxurious natural materials, leather, marble and solid wood, with an extensive knowledge of craftsmanship and cutting-edge manufacturing technologies.
Bethan Gray, an award winning Welsh designer, with an extraordinary background. Her family hails from an ancient Rajasthani clan that over centuries migrated across Arabia and Persia before settling in the Celtic heartland of Wales. It’s a heritage that weaves a rich pattern of influences and inspirations, which draw on craft traditions of both East and West.
Bethan’s signature style reveals a love of detail, tactile textures, and luxurious materials such as semi-precious stones, marble, wood, and hand-tooled leather. Intricate patterns of light and dark, texture, purity of line, clarity, harmony and a connoisseur’s eye for detail define her highly original style. Her skill in combining cutting edge design technology with a deep knowledge of the values of traditional craftsmanship resonates across cultures.
Her sense of pattern, colour and form are at the heart of everything she designs. The elegance and harmony of her work, created through a combination of cutting edge design technology and a deep knowledge of traditional craftsmanship, gives it a timeless quality that transcends trend.
She is featured extensively in the media and has exhibited in London, Milan, Paris and New York. Her work was recently recognised with the prestigious award of ‘Best British Designer’ in 2013/14.
