Furniture


Bespoke wooden furniture that makes everyday life more comfortable and more beautiful. These pieces are examples from past commissions and can be redesigned to meet your unique needs and tastes

Corner Desk


Not your ordinary writing desk! This bent parallelogram shape is designed to fit well in any corner, allowing you to work on either side.


Features:

  • Solid ash sourced in County Durham
  • Finished on each side with an angled ‘breadboard’ to prevent warping during the wet and humid season 
  • Joined with round pegs of European walnut, adding a distinct visual and haptic feature
  • Finished with a pigmented oil to maintain the nice pale look of the ash




Side Table



The perfect companion for evenings in an armchair with a glass of wine and book. This piece is taller than usual side tables so that everything you need is easily within reach. The table is solidly built and stands on wavy legs inspired by designs from the 19th century Arts & Crafts movement.


Features:


  • Created out of a single 40mm slab of spalted beech sourced from the North East of England, the wood in this table shows a huge range of hues in its grain
  • The legs are cut (not bent) following the grain of the wood
  • The table top features classic ‘tenon’ joints containing strips of European walnut



Studio desk



Created to make desk work more beautiful and enjoyable. This piece was designed around an exceptionally unique piece of wood, but features all the important elements of a classic working desk - tabletop, four legs, two drawers.


Features:

  • This desk is made of spalted beech from a tree felled in County Durham
  • The grain of the table top is mirrored creating a symmetrical heart shape in the centre
  • The desk is joined in a traditional way with the help of ‘splines’, which are left visible at the sides of the table top
  • The drawers are made strong with hidden ‘dovetail joints’ and the whole front of the desk including the drawer fronts is made out of a single piece of wood, showcasing its gorgeous grain




Book Shelves



These book shelves are as versatile as they are minimalistic. The aim was to create an elegant wooden frame that would make any room more beautiful without drawing too much attention away from the books themselves.

Features:


  • This example is made of red pine with a tinted oil finish
  • The shelves are fully customisable; width, height, and type of wood can all be adjusted to the needs of your library
  • For stability, the shelves are slotted with ‘dado joints’ and the frame gets its strength from ‘tenon joints’ featuring strips of European walnut
