craftsmanship and care


We are a family business based in the heart of Derbyshire. Matthew Dawes leads the company as a fully qualified, time-served bench joiner with eight years’ experience working in the furniture-making industry. He has a background of over 17 years in art and design, bringing this expertise into each piece of handcrafted furniture he makes, operating out of his Derbyshire workshop.

Matthew has long had a passion for the Shaker style. Shaker craftsman were known for a style of furniture that is simple, durable, functional and is still highly regarded to this day. Matthew uses these guiding principles to strongly influence the design and manufacture process of each individual creation.
