How would you describe your style?

"My approach to furniture design marries the elegance of classic periods with the practicality of present-day living. Where possible, I highlight the natural grain and inherent beauty of the wood. I design furniture using traditional joinery techniques, blending timeless craftsmanship with a contemporary aesthetic and sleek modern lines.

Drawing on my restoration expertise, I specialise in crafting new furniture pieces with an aged appearance. ‘New but not to look new’ is a common request; clients appreciate how these custom creations can blend harmoniously into newly designed and furnished homes, adding unique charm and character through expertly applied distressing techniques."
