Hello, my name is Rich and I have always had a passion for creating well made handcrafted furniture, that is ethical and looks beautiful. I have always loved the look of natural edged furniture, but really dislike the label 'rustic'. I wanted to see if I could create well made pieces that mixed beautiful slices of natural timber and reclaimed materials, with a modern feel that would fit into any home.
I worked in building sites for a few years, and witnessed a lot of gorgeous old timber being disposed of. I could see the potential in every piece that was being thrown in the skip, so it gave me the idea to only use reclaimed materials for the furniture I wanted to make. To make use of the vast amounts of waste, and make every single piece as unique as the wood I was making it out of.
The natural edge timber, only comes from trees that have either fallen, had to come down for safety reasons, or been felled to preserve ancient woodland.
The reclaimed pieces come from either reclamation yards, my contacts in the building trade, or anywhere I can scavenge them. All timber is sourced locally, even materials such as mirror glass is bought from charity shops to minimise waste.
I believe in making quality products, and take pride in the pieces that I make. Bespoke orders are welcome, so if you're looking for something a little bit different - or can't find what you are looking for - an individual piece that's perfect for your home can be created.
