Based in brighton james furniture specialises in making work that is original, functional and beautiful.
every one of our pieces is tailor-made, a one-off and, the result of a creative collaboration between ourselves and the client. Such a partnership begins with an idea, a wish or a need. Initial meetings focus on use, on setting, and on design. Drawings are made in situ. Spatial and environmental details - temperature, relative humidity, and room function - inform the design and choice of material.
Making the work
the design agreed, a timeframe established, we hand-make the piece. Led by the wood, the quality of work — the methods employed, the tools used — is that which relates to the material in hand. Such a relationship involves knowing the wood, understanding its properties, and being prepared for its capacity to surprise. In this respect, we are as much craftsmen as we are makers.
throughout the making, we go to great lengths to keep the client informed as to how a piece is progressing. Once finished, we deliver it, install it, and ensure that everything is to the client’s satisfaction.
If you’d like to chat through an idea or any of our work, please do get in touch.
