Lua Garcia escaped a life of screens and scrolling to rekindle her creative flame as a London-based woodworker. But switching spreadsheets for splinters doesn’t come without challenges: every day Lua has to manage the balance in creating bespoke furniture that’s versatile enough to last generations yet still fits with a client’s vision.

You just need to know where to look.”
