Westergaard designs comprises a unique collection of furniture and products lovingly created by young designer Polly Westergaard. The designs are heavily influenced by Polly’s cultural heritage, from both her Danish ancestry and her British roots. This fusion of cultural perspectives results in chic, contemporary, innovative pieces, designed for longevity whilst retaining a fresh take on modern living.
Polly explores elements of past trends in her work, updating traditional designs for contemporary living, drawing on the influences of historical pieces and examining the ways in which these designs can be re-invented to function in today’s interiors.
Polly was born in South East London, leaving the capital to study Three Dimensional Design in the North East at Northumbria University. She has remained in Newcastle and is now part of a thriving new design community. Having spent two years initiating new products under the university’s Design in Residence scheme, Polly is continuing to grow and develop the westergaard designs brand.
Polly says "We are very proud that all of our products are made in the UK, with as many as possible produced in the North East of England, close to my home. We strive to keep things local, support British manufacturing and reduce our carbon footprint".
