Ronald Carter furniture designer

I am sorry to say I didn't know of Ronald Carter, prior to his obituary, which shows how much we have to learn. He did some seminal work and was based locally in Wirksworth Derbyshire.

I am especially surprised as he appears to have cleverly linked my own interest of Scandi Modern with A & C tradition and brought it to a successful conclusion - not an easy challenge.

Thanks for posting, Brian - I hadn't heard of him either.

Cheers ;-)

Ron taught me at the RCA and he was a man who had that rare quality that inspired students with confidence. Today designers just seem to want to be famous and tutors just want to create mini me's so it is sad to see the generation who possessed such integrity pass away.
