A family business

We are a family business which has been producing fine handmade oak furniture in Derbyshire since 1946. My father, Rupert Griffiths, who was inspired by traditional English furniture design and the Arts and Crafts movement sold his furniture through top retail stores, including Harrods, until 1968. Since then it has been sold directly from our workshops.

Made of solid, thoroughly seasoned oak and using centuries old hand crafting methods, our furniture has a strength, style and finish not available in mass produced, plastic sprayed furniture.

As people seek to maximise storage space and individualise their homes, bespoke oak furniture items now form almost half of our work. Because our oak furniture is made from beginning to end by a single craftsman, any of our standard designs can be altered to allow you to create the look you want or you can have something designed for you.

Our bespoke handmade oak furniture orders have ranged from oak bedroom furniture, oak living room furniture and oak dining room furniture to hand carved oak doors for the house or garden or desks for the study.

If it can be made in oak, then we can make it for you. If you holiday in this beautiful part of the Peak District then please come in a take a look around the handmade oak furniture showroom. Allow us to create what you can imagine.
