Editorial Suite: Lou Harriss, Furniture Designer


Crafting furniture certainly is a labour of love. And the love Lou Harriss has for her craft is captured here in this editorial-style showcase – a continuation of the studio snaps I photographed earlier this year.

Lou’s workshop is located in the Southern Highland’s town of Mittagong, a little over an hour’s drive from Sydney. It’s brimming with timbers, tools, chisels, sharpening stones, custom-crafted cabinetry and furniture works-in-progress. A feast for any photographers eyes!

We also had the opportunity to photograph Lou at her friend’s cabin with her doggie companion. Lou was just staying a week, yet still managed to spruce up the entry with French Door seconds!
