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.

Under Winch’s Wing was established during the COVID-19 crisis to provide support to the smallest craftspeople and suppliers whose irreplaceable skill has been bringing the Winch Design portfolio to life for the past 35 years. Winch Design wanted to offer support to the smallest suppliers and artisans who help to bring the Winch portfolio to life.

Sussex Collection: Key Cabinets
24th August 2020
Sussex Collection: Luna Key Cabinets Now available in a NEW timber combination: English walnut, English cherry and maple Luna Key Cabinet, 43cm (w) x 70cm (h) x 9cm (d), shown in English walnut, English cherry and maple We now have our Luna key cabinets available in a stunning new timber combination: English walnut, English cherry and maple with an oiled finish. Inside, three rails hold the specially made key rings with space at the bottom for your wallet or mobile phone. The cabinet also houses a mirror for those final checks before leaving the house. Made using our own unique Murano circular and semi-circular veneers, the gradient has been carefully selected, starting at the core to create a stunning tonal blend. Luna Key Cabinet, 43cm (w) x 70cm (h) x 9cm (d), shown in elm, London plane and maple Spotlight on Edward's Murano Technique Edward sees this process as a way: ‘to manipulate the grain of the wood as an artist would manipulate paint with a brush’. A selection of Murano veneers made with different timbers. Murano Collection The Murano Collection was originally inspired by a visit to the island of Murano, where Venetian master craftsmen have been producing glassware for centuries, by floating layers of different coloured glass through one another to produce exquisite patterns. Our Murano veneers have been developed and perfected in our workshop and are all made in-house. They have been adapted to form wavy, radial and straight designs. Each veneer uses contrasting timbers to add texture or to create a blended effect. The various patterns result in carefully matched sweeping lines and curves that engulf the entire surface of the furniture. This collection again stems from Edward’s interest and expertise in laminating. This time his aim was to develop an organic free-flowing form reminiscent of Venetian glass. To create this effect, hundreds of thin strips of wood are cut in the workshop and reconfigured, resulting in sweeping lines and curves bringing soft and organic patterns to the angular forms. The Murano veneers can be constructed in a wide range and combination of timbers and applied to almost any of our designs. Read more about Edward’s ‘Family Tree’ concept that adds an extra dimension and personalises our Murano commissions. <back to blog
