Real Wood Furniture…

We believe that beautifully crafted wooden furniture can help you create a home as unique as your family. That’s why we’ve created collections of furniture to suit a range of styles, from the rustic farmhouse Derwent collection, and the pared back charm of the Wansbeck through to the minimalist lines of the Ouseburn and Bowes, and more. So, All our furniture and shelves also come with choices, so you can have your perfect made-to-order piece. Choose from different coloured wax finishes to create a piece that fits your style; choose the length and thickness of your shelves, and the length and width of key furniture pieces like tables, benches and beds.

Real Wood Furniture…

Made By Real People…

Every wooden shelf, or piece of solid wood furniture that we sell is handcrafted in our workshop in the North East of England. Our team of skilled joiners and craftspeople bring our designs to life, creating made-to-order furniture that’s truly unique. No two pieces look exactly the same. That’s because they’re made beautiful timbers that naturally have different grains and features, and crafted by different members of our team. Take a look inside our workshop and go behind the scenes!
