Designed and crafted for you…

Furniture designer and maker Edward Johnson and his highly skilled team of cabinet makers manufacture contemporary furniture, accessories and specialist joinery for high-end interior projects, working for both private clients and design professionals including interior designers and architects.

Remote technology…

All our furniture is designed and manufactured in our rural, south coast studio and workshop in West Sussex. However, our experience, passion and skillset mean no distance is too far. Our clients are located nationally and internationally. So wherever you are, Edward is available to discuss your project, over the phone, internet or in person.

From boxes to tables and everything in between… 

You can either browse and buy from our online portfolio or start a bespoke commission. Your design flexibility, time capacity and budget will determine which option suits you best.

Furniture maker Edward Johnson and his team bring you:

  • Experience you can trust

Since establishing his business in 2009, Edward Johnson and his team have designed and made a wide variety of products and installations, from the straightforward to the complex. Edward’s pieces of furniture reflected his deep understanding of materials, construction techniques and craftsmanship. The combination of his experience, creative aptitude and distinctive approach to form and function is the driving force behind every project – and the reason our clients come back time and time again!

  • Skilled craftsmanship you can rely on

An accomplished craftsman, Edward has a well-honed eye for detail and uses this to carefully manage each project with precision and artistry. His team of talented cabinetmakers considers every single detail, from hand selecting the most suitable timber to choosing the best grain for individual components. Whether presented with a complicated technical challenge, or simply a chamfer that needs applying or adjusting, we have the skills to address it. Our intimate understanding of furniture and materials is at the heart of our business, and fundamental in making sure our clients are happy.

  • Artistic design flair you can appreciate

Edward seamlessly combines practicality with creative flair and innovation. He takes great inspiration from the William Morris quotation below, prioritising utility and aesthetic, and incorporates this within his own design ethos. Whether an entirely new design or a minor tweak of an existing one, the real art is achieving perfection first time. Your thoughts and ideas are safe in his hands. 

“Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.”
William Morris

  • Passion you can admire

We love what we do, and design and make all our furniture with passion and care. We work hard for our clients because without your patronage our industry, with all its traditional skills, wouldn’t survive. We are lucky to enjoy what we do in keeping these skills alive, and hope it is visible in the work we produce. Our clients are always welcome and encouraged to visit our studio and workshop at any time during the design or making process, to experience first-hand the expertise and artistry that bring our designs to fruition.


What our clients’ say…

Squaring the Circle Jewellery Box

The whole experience was excellent. Ed’s creative input and ability to find solutions is matched by the craftsmanship of himself and his team. Friendly and efficient, they kept me updated at every stage and we were delighted with the finished piece.

Radiant Chest of Drawers

I absolutely love my chest of drawers. Its beautiful design is truly a wonderful modern Masterpiece. The craftsmanship and perfection of detail is unique, and I love to sit and admire it. It is also extremely useful! It will be an inheritance to be treasured by my grandson and future generations.
MS, London

Bog Oak Ripples Chest

The blanket chest is just what we had hoped for. The combination of the bog oak and the ripples reminds me of many happy times in the Outer Hebrides…. peat and the Atlantic! Every time I look at it, it makes me smile, thank you so much!
MR, Guildford, Surrey
