Tread Softly

Tread Softly

Tread softly was founded in 2015 by Hannah Wiles, the Manchester based fine artist with a background in furniture restoration. “I wanted to select pieces of furniture that were well made, aesthetically pleasing, with a history and then by using contemporary design principles, transform them into inspiring, exceptionally beautiful pieces that people will want to live with for a long time. This to me makes environmental, artistic and utilitarian sense”
