Douglas + Bec for Kate Sylvester Collection

Kate Sylvester and Douglas + Bec are proud to announce their upcoming collaboration. Born out of a shared philosophy and design etiquette, grows a synonymous unity of specifically made design pieces for your home.

White oak, brass, ceramic, hand dyed linen & leather combine to make a timeless collection, designed by Rebecca Snelling, with the iconic Kate Sylvester aesthetic in mind, and handmade with love by Rebecca’s father, Douglas Snelling. Stand out pieces include a Brass folding stool, a hand turned Table Lamp with a hand dyed blush linen shade and the perfect Side Table in 'duck egg' painted wood with brass crossed legs. Other pieces to accompany the collection include a 'wood' scented candle made by a French perfumer based in New York and an ivory ceramic swan, made by the ex-Crown Lynn ceramicist with a hand-painted gold-leaf beak!

Douglas + Bec is a family project. Designer, Rebecca and maker, Douglas Snelling have been producing hand crafted lighting and furniture for over five years. Gaining international recognition, Rebecca’s material sensibility and Douglas’ traditional craftsmanship strikes the perfect balance between contemporary and classic design.

This debut collection captures the spirit of Kate Sylvester’s sophisticated and irreverent charm. She is a true creative, with an established and loyal following. Her ability to transform her ideas across any aspect of design, whether it be a dress, jewellery or a desk lamp, has been substantiated with this partnership.
