Boat company gets land legs

How do you go from making fuel tanks to producing furniture? In the case of Malcolm Cole the link comes through the company's expertise with metal. Having started with fuel tanks it moved into exhausts and cooling water systems and then translated its expertise in stainless steel into handrail design. These handrails then migrated from boats to buildings, including such high-profile structures as Canary Wharf Jubilee Line station. The latest evolution is into furniture, again using tubes and with a distinctly romantic maritime feel.

Luxury-yacht designer Jon Bannenberg has given the Timeless Collection his endorsement, but again these products are making their way onshore. Anyone for a sundowner?
