Bespoke Furniture Designers and Makers

We design and make bespoke pieces of furniture in our own workshops.

We strive to produce work of the highest quality, to be respectful of the materials used, the environment and, of course, the needs of you the customer.

We can make a furniture piece to your design, or help you realise a style or period idea not yet fully formed. The timber we use is key: the characteristics of a particular species can heavily influence our design ideas. Much that is understood about proportion comes from the natural world and we seek inspiration from there too.

We aim to work with the best available hard and softwood timbers from sustainable and, as far as possible, native and local sources.

We like to use traditional methods and hand tools but are pragmatic about integrating them with modern solutions where appropriate.
