Woman to Watch: Bethan Gray

Welsh designer Bethan Gray had a monumentous year in 2013, winning the coveted title of Best British Designer by Elle Decoration and debuting collaborations with UK brands The Conran Shop, Wallpaper*, John Lewis, and leading American brand Crate & Barrel. Gray's Pennie Sofa and Chair for Crate & Barrel caught our eye instantly, and we're pleased to discover the designer will launch more products for Crate & Barrel this year.
