Lauren Lea Haynes Studio is a furniture design and sculpture studio based in Naarm/Melbourne. LLh Studio explores the playful side of design without overlooking the importance of well-crafted design, emphasizing a locally made approach. LLh Studio combines colour, sculptural form and various materials to challenge conventional parameters in furniture design.

In both the home and the commercial world, LLh Studio designs are developed with an understanding of their surroundings and mood, and aim to bring joy both aesthetically and functionally. The designs at LLh Studio are well crafted, simple, and fun.



A commitment to using locally grown and sustainably sourced materials is integral to the studio’s ethos. Understanding the environmental impact of each design and sticking to a small batch production operation is integral to the studio’s sustainability commitment. LLh Studio is a slow furniture practice, run by solely, by Lauren (& Chips).



Lauren has studied an Associate Degree in Furniture Design at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Techonology.
