Since our inception we have  worked mostly on residential projects and have worked with a host of brilliant interior designers, architects and private clients.

We are experienced in consulting and collaborating with designers to achieve practical solutions to the design and manufacture of any bespoke wood-based project, as well as designing pieces from scratch. We combine traditional craftsmanship with forward-thinking techniques to get the best result, using the latest technologies where necessary.

Our furniture is made with precision and devotion by our team and will last for generations. We are passionate about the materials we work with and will always use British timbers when possible, we take pride in selecting the best materials for any job. We like to allow the natural beauty of timber to shine through and harness it through the precise detail that we bring to our furniture.

Please get in touch with us to discuss any projects that we can assist you with.

Sustainability

The most important thing about being a fine furniture designer / maker is that you have to be at one with your craft and your chosen material. Given that our material of choice is wood we feel very strongly that we should do our bit to care for it, not just when it’s in our workshop but when it’s rooted, in its natural environment, now and in the future.

At JMW Furniture we have started to plank our own timber, all yielded from the same estate in Scotland. Each tree that we fell is selected for its aesthetic appeal, allowing the next generation more space and light in which they can prosper. We re-plant trees where necessary, but usually prefer to manage the wild woodland in order to encourage natural regeneration. The youngster saplings are coming up everywhere so it’s our job to give them their best chance to stand tall and proud one day. 

We are in the process of developing a line of furniture where every piece of timber used is traceable to its original spot at Invermay. Felling, milling, seasoning and drying to the right conditions is of paramount importance for the best quality and it is an expensive and time-consuming process. In reality it is a mere second or two in the lives of these splendid giants that are so important to everything on this earth. We must consider with far greater awareness how we treat our woodland all over the globe, and in doing so we can all enjoy their habitats and allow fellow craftsmen to continue to work with it to create beautiful pieces. Wood is the greatest of all natural materials, and should be respected and cared for in that manner.
