Bespoke Handmade Furniture made in the rural Herefordshire countryside
We offer custom made or bespoke furniture for your dining room, bedroom, living room and study. We make a wide range of beds, dining tables, bookcases, wardrobes, coffee tables and dressers.
We find that customers come to us because the like the style of furniture that we make, but would like it made to their own requirements. As such, all our furniture can be made to your exact specification:
- Personalised carving
We have three standard colour finishes (natural, medium and dark) but we are more than happy to polish your furniture in a colour of your choice. This is perfect if you need your new furniture to match in with existing items in the room. We can also design furniture to blend in with existing pieces. If this is of interest please forward a few detailed photos to help with an accurate match.
Examples of many pieces of furniture can be seen if you visit the showroom and, although it may not be the size that you would like, it will give you a good indication of the things that we can make to your requirements.
The furniture is made using locally grown, sustainable timber, mainly oak and ash. Whole tree trunks are delivered form local woodland estates then cut into various sized planks. We have had oak from The Duchy of Cornwall and ash had been coming from The Garnons Estate, both near Hereford, and both within 20 miles of the workshop, making delivery very environmentally friendly.
Most of the bespoke furniture is handmade to your individual requirements. If you would like us to quote for a bookcase or cabinet, for example, please tell us the overall sizes and dimensions of any items needed to fit in the furniture, such as a TV or number of DVD, CD's, books or bottles of wine.
Tradition and Quality
We make modern and contemporary furniture, as well as the more traditional antique country style furniture. We make solid wood furniture (no plywood or MDF, unless requested). We combine traditional techniques and modern methods to make a piece of furniture that will last many generations.
- We are based in a rural area.
- We own our workshops.
- We dry our own timber (cutting out at least one middleman).
- We do not have a shop outlet.
- We avoid expensive magazine advertising.
This keeps our overheads reasonable and, as a result, we are able to pass this saving onto our customers.
Stephen Edwards has been brought up on a Herefordshire farm all of his life, in the beautiful, rural area on the English/Welsh border, known as The Marches. His mother and father are both from farming families, but they gave Stephen the opportunity to develop his skills in the furniture making industry without pressure to return to the family way of life, working on the farm. He finished his City and Guilds course as best in the country.
