About

Chunky furniture handmade in Somerset from timber reclaimed in the South-West and Wales.

In my 20s I spent many years working in recording studios, so I understand the need for studio musicians and engineers to have somewhere special to house their equipment. This range of studio based furniture and rack units aims to bring something warm, unique and characterful into the studio environment.

I started Chunky Reclaimed Furniture as a part time venture whilst working around my day job as a designer. It wasn’t long before I realised that working with reclaimed wood was where my passion lay. As the number of orders and commissions increased, I decided to leave the world of 9 – 5 office work and make this my full time occupation. Now I am able to draw upon a love of good design, interesting wood and a desire to make the world a greener place.

Chunky reclaimed furniture is a small business where the focus is on high quality individual product design and good service.  Most of the items we produce are based on the items on this website, but given the nature of the wood each item will be unique.  For this reason very few pieces are in stock (other than a few one-off pieces), as I prefer to custom make each item based on the customers’ requirements.

My aim is to give old wood a new lease of life whilst exposing its natural character and evidence of its former industrial life. In doing so I am offering a bespoke practical alternative to mass produced lightweight furniture. Each piece is unique, having been up-cycled from timbers which would otherwise have been destined for landfill or wood chippings.

 

Any of the items on this website can be ordered either as they are described, or to your specifications.  If you want to order anything or if there is anything that is not listed that you want me to quote for, please get in touch.
