About us


Welcome to Orange Otter Design.

We are a husband and wife team passionate about design, art, colour and interiors. From our little workshop in the Surrey Hills we hand paint watches, revive tired furniture and generally bring a colourful twist to anything we can get our hands on. Anniken is the furniture geek while Ben loves a nice watch, although we do help each other out from time to time too.

We also care deeply about the world we live in. Which is why we spend so much time bringing new life to tired pieces of furniture that might otherwise be discarded and are always striving to reduce our impact on the world around us.

Life is too short to be surrounded by things that don't make us happy. Let us bring some colour into your world.

“Every year in the UK we throw out around 1.6m tonnes of furniture and bulky waste, most of which is buried in landfill or burnt in an incinerator. Conserving and re-using this furniture, on the other hand, would save valuable resources, create employment benefits and provide affordable items to local communities"
