LINE T KLEIN Photographer Line Klein says she was ‘spellbound’ by the first darkroom she saw when she was 14. She worked in the photography department of a newspaper in Denmark before becoming a photographer full time. Working with stylists on shoots has inspired Line to see her home ‘as a playground’ and to invest in ‘fewer but better pieces of furniture’.

They met at Fired Earth, where Rob was creative director, Andy the CEO and Lucy the marketing director. Last year, however, the trio decided to take a chance and set up their own company, Claybrook. As with most start-ups, the plan was to begin small. But that’s not to say they don’t have big ambitions. It will come as no surprise that high-end floor and wall tiles are the brand’s initial focus. ‘Who knew that a tile could be so addictive?’ reads the Claybrook launch statement.
