Alfred designs bespoke fitted and freestanding furniture for commercial and private interiors. Drawings are worked from his Notting Hill studio, in collaboration with interior designers or directly for clients. He uses sustainably sourced material and approaches each piece with a sensitivity towards the natural qualities of the wood.

This collection of furniture showcases English Oak. The hand painted kitchen dresser includes a single slab oak worktop finished in natural oil. The side table's reeded detail follows the grain direction and is finished with soap and lye. The cross-framed dining table, inspired by vernacular architecture, will gain a natural patina which will only improve with age and use. The emphasis of this collection is simple design allowing the quality of both craftsmanship and material to speak for itself.
