Doug’s background

Doug has over 15 years’ experience in furniture making, from working under master craftsmen in England and Canberra, You can find his commissioned work seating executives, displayed in museums, or delighting the homes of his trusted clients.

His design studio is nestled near the beaches of Port Stephens, Australia, and surrounded by the natural beauty that draws tourists from all over the world.

Launching his own private studio and workshop is the realization of a life’s dream, where he can reflect’s his passion for sustainability, environmentally conscious building practices, bespoke artistry, all while offering clients a personalized experiences ensuring complete satisfaction.

With each order you can be sure of the following:

Sustainable timbers

Doug works with native and exotic timbers that are Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC) certified. This ensures that timber for his furniture is from sustainable forests and mills.

Environmentally safe finishes

Doug uses an ecologically safe plant-based oil finish that contributes no greenhouse emissions and is free of harmful chemicals. There is no “off gassing” of volatile organic compounds (VOC), into surroundings.

Slow furniture

The negative effects of fast furniture on landfill and the associated waste of resources is a focal point with Doug. Properly made furniture, by lasting longer, can minimise this.

From order to delivery

All pieces are custom designed, in a collaborative process between Doug and the client. The aim is to achieve a piece of fine furniture tailored to the client’s wishes.

Once the design is agreed, manufacture can begin in Doug’s workshop. Making handcrafted furniture is labour intensive. It is not a process to be rushed. Good pieces are made slowly, to last for generations and give continuing joy.
