With a love for good design and the belief that the things we surround ourselves with are central to our identity, husband and wife team, Dermot & Janelle Lenaghan, have created Melbourne based furniture brand kin. Launched at the 2015 DEN Furniture and Design Fair with great success, kin’s ethos of simplicity, function and longevity is clearly evident in their first collection.

A long held passion for furniture design, together with their shared ambition to build a life centred on creative work and family, brought the couple to found kin. Central to the kin approach is the value placed on how things are made. Working in close collaboration with specialist local craftsmen, their products are skillfully and ethically produced in Australia, ensuring high quality and consistency.

“Good design for us means, combining the rational with the emotional, to enrich objects through an emphasis on craftsmanship, considered detail and natural materials. We hope to connect and harmonise our products with the people who use them and the spaces they inhabit.” It is this intention coupled with the unique construction technique used in the debut range that lends the name ‘connect’ to the collection.
