Dedicated to craftsmanship

about us / press





We are a partnership of designer makers dedicated to creating beautiful handcrafted furniture from our workshop in Somerset. We have a love of contemporary design and a passion for traditional craft. Our training as cabinet makers instilled in us a meticulous attention to detail which is evident in both the design and execution of our work. Through the use of high quality materials and our commitment to a simple harmony of form and function we create furniture that is bold yet understated.

     Since beginning our partnership in 2015 we have been exploring and developing a range of made-to-order furniture as well as working on a string of private commissions. We are excited to announce several new pieces including collaborations with Benchmark and Kate Collin Design.




    We are proud to have been awarded a Bespoke and a Design Guild mark in our first three years in business. These are the most prestigious awards for excellence in design for manufacture and excellence in craftsmanship for bespoke pieces.

Charles Byron

    I grew up in the New Forest, England, and have always loved making things out of wood.  My childhood home was full of antiques - some of which are thought to have belonged to my ancestor the poet Lord Byron - and from an early age I was fascinated by the different styles and materials used. After taking a science degree, I studied traditional cabinet making at Williams and Cleal furniture school whereI learned the skills I needed to transform an idea into an exquisite finished piece you can see and touch.

María del Mar Gómez

     I grew in Puerto Rico and was always interested making and designing from a young age. An innate desire to understand how the objects that surround us are made led me to study architecture and woodworking to pursue my life long dream of becoming a furniture designer maker. Drawing inspiration from my homeland's architecture, materials and forms I strive to create work that hold a beautiful balance between form, function and execution.
