We design and make exclusive, contemporary limited-edition and bespoke luxury furniture to provide you with quality, originality and choice. We create contemporary products with a unique signature style for those who enjoy and appreciate accomplished design and excellent craftsmanship, and who are looking for something truly individual.

As a friendly and experienced team, we make the process of commissioning one of our pieces of furniture as flexible, enjoyable and rewarding as possible. We understand that all our clients are different and therefore we tailor our approach to suit you and always maintain a can-do attitude.

Put simply, there are three paths to acquiring a piece of our furniture. Which one suits you best will depend on your design flexibility, time capacity and budget.

Purchase a Stocked item: This is the quickest, easiest and most cost-effective option and ideal for those wishing to purchase an Edward Johnson piece immediately.

Commission a Limited-Edition item: As-seen, or tailored to your specific requirements: i.e. alternative timber combinations and small design tweaks. This is ideal for those who like one of our existing designs but may wish to tailor it to meet their specific requirements without the time commitment, design unknowns and premium cost of a bespoke piece.

Collaborate on a Bespoke design: This service is ideal for those who want something truly individual and are happy to spend the time collaborating on their own bespoke design.

Small businesses need your support!
31st March 2020
Dear friends, colleagues and clients, I wanted to write an appeal given the current challenges that thousands of businesses are facing across the country and indeed worldwide. Small businesses far and wide need your support! The country is facing a major problem with both supply and demand of products and whilst the headline news is focused on increased demand in supermarkets, many other sectors are experiencing a dramatic decrease in business. My concerns for small businesses far and wide, are not just for the coming weeks, but the coming months. We, like many others, have already experienced the immediate effects with projects being cancelled at short notice. Naturally our focus is on the here and now, but sadly this problem is not going away any time soon! I implore you not to freeze but to continue with life as best you can in these challenging circumstances, albeit from the safety of your home for those who are able. Government support may go some way to getting businesses through the coming weeks, but we will need your support to keep us busy through the coming months. With your support we can get through this and also keep our loyal and talented team together. Most of our work is done remotely and commissions can, on the whole, be instigated through emails, phone calls, skype or facetime. We also have an excellent selection of stocked furniture that is ready and waiting to be delivered through non-contact means. I wish you all the best and I hope you remain safe and healthy!Best wishes Ed
Open Studio 2020
27th March 2020
Photograph courtesy Alan Frost Understandably so, this year’s Chichester Art Trail has been cancelled. However, given our particular situation and location we believe that we can still put on a safe show. We are opening the workshop and studio for two days on Saturday 2 and Sunday 3 May, 10.30am - 5pm daily. We have an airy workshop and studio where you can keep your distance. We are planning a steam-bending demonstration that will take place outside in the fresh air. As much as it pains me to say, we will be encouraging people to use their eyes and avoid touching the furniture. Of course, you can always buy the piece of furniture and touch it to your heart’s content at home :) Time slots:For those visitors who have extra concerns we would encourage you to book a 30 minute private time slot with us ahead of the day and we will keep the workshop closed for your particular booking. Please either call us on 01243 696606 or email us via our contact form to book one of the available appointments below: Saturday 2 May 2020TimeSunday 3 May 2020TimeAvailable10.30am - 11.00amAvailable10.30am - 11.00am Available 11.00am - 11.30amAvailable 11.00am - 11.30am Available 11.30am - 12.00pmAvailable 11.30am - 12.00pm Available 12.00pm - 12.30pmAvailable 12.00pm - 12.30pm Available 12.30pm - 1.00pmAvailable 12.30pm - 1.00pm Available 1.00pm - 1.30pmAvailable 1.00pm - 1.30pm Available 1.30pm - 2.00pmAvailable 1.30pm - 2.00pm Available 2.00pm - 2.30pmAvailable2.00pm - 2.30pmAvailable 2.30pm - 3.00pmAvailable 2.30pm - 3.00pm Available 3.00pm - 3.30pmAvailable 3.00pm - 3.30pm Available 3.30pm - 4.00pmAvailable 3.30pm - 4.00pm Available 4.00pm - 4.30pmAvailable 4.00pm - 4.30pm Available 4.30pm - 5.00pm Available 4.30pm - 5.00pm Article correct as written Friday 20th March 2020. <back to blog
Photography by Alan Frost
26th March 2020
A selection of photographs of the Edward Johnson workshop taken by photographer Alan Frost. Very recently, before ‘social distancing’ and the COVID-19 ‘lockdown’, photographer Alan Frost visited our workshop and studio. Ed first met Alan back in November 2019, when they were both exhibiting their work at The House at Hill Lane, in a ‘pop-up’ exhibition hosted by contemporary textile artist Polly Meynell. As Alan explains on his blog, ‘I couldn’t help but admire Ed’s work and asked if him if it might be possible to visit his studio and photograph his team at work. I wasn’t seeking a commission, I just wanted to do it for my own enjoyment, but I did offer him a set of photographs which he could use for his own publicity’. Consequently, Alan has kindly given us permission to publish his stunning photographs. Alan worked very discreetly whilst everyone continued with their work. It has been a pleasure to view the fruits of his labour and see our workplace through fresh eyes. Obviously, we are used to viewing our own product shots, however, it is only human nature to become so familiar with your everyday surroundings that you miss the finer details. This familiarity often means we miss the exquisite details and different perspective that a creative photographer like Alan would seek out and turn into an image of beauty. You will see our Sussex Chairs in production and some candid shots of us all at work. It is with great pleasure that we share a selection of his images, whilst hopefully sharing some good cheer in these unprecedented times. Thank you Alan! Read Alan’s blog.
