FURNITURE BLOG – Bespoke Furniture Makers
As bespoke furniture makers, we have a passion for using sustainable materials to produce handmade dining tables and kitchen furniture that is built for life. We are are totally inspired by the oak frames of the farm buildings that surround us here in the Loire Valley, France. And we love to combine artisan furniture making techniques with contemporary design with architectural influences. We hope that our furniture blog will give you some insight into the way we work and our influences. Furniture care tips and finishing techniques will also feature occasionally too. Happy reading!

I hope you like this short time-lapse film of us putting together a table top. Two minutes doesn’t really do justice to the actual 30 minutes of sheer physical effort that goes in to putting each of our table tops together.
Last minute finishes to complete by the end of the day. Drawer runners, hinges, doors and a second coat of Osmo hardwax oil. Delivery day tomorrow.
We have loved working on something so different from usual. This is the best part of making bespoke furniture, there is always something totally unique waiting to be made. Our deadline is only a couple of days away, but I couldn’t resist posting a few pictures of progress so far.
Work on our workshop roof is now complete and as the winter approaches, it seemed a fitting end to make a bonfire with any last bits of timber from the old roof. A symbolic end to the work. We can at last get on with more pressing things inside the workshop!
