London, UK

Roddy Clarke works as a journalist covering many areas of design with a strong focus on the positive social and environmental impacts it can have. A regular contributor to Forbes, The Financial Times and the London Evening Standard, he is also working on a new online restoration platform, The Restoration Collective. His passion for interiors, antiques and sustainability stems from a young age, learning directly from his father, a china and porcelain restorer. He spent over four years managing multiple restoration projects and after moving to London he focused on the furniture retail industry. Working as a freelance stylist and creative brand director led him to discover the role of design within a future society where a conscious ethos and a beautiful aesthetic can be successfully merged.
