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.

Spotlight on Freeform
26th September 2019
'Have nothing in your house that you do not knowto be useful or believe to be beautiful.' William Morris   Edward Johnson’s work is the product of a deep understanding of his materials and the desire to explore its possibilities. His creative approach allows him to think outside of the box and push the boundaries of his materials.     Edward’s designs are often conceptually based, but with form and function always at the fore. He perceives both beauty and usefulness in equal parts when designing and developing his ideas into thought-provoking, fluid and tactile forms. One of his principal aims is to challenge our understanding of what is possible, which he achieves through creative aptitude and his mastered ability to engineer in wood. Here we throw the spotlight onto his Freeform technique.     Freeform Collection: The Freeform Collection pushes laminating to its limits in a very different way to the methods adopted for the Ripples and Murano Collection. The sweeping curved elements used in the construction are made from one continuous length of timber, using various moulding techniques to shape and manipulate the material. Each curved element is then finished by hand using various spoke-shaves, requiring outstanding craftsmanship and a keen eye for detail. Typically, during the research and development stages of our freeform pieces, small-scale models and prototypes are made. Unusually, these often include sections made at actual size, in order to gauge the stresses, strains and limitations on the timber in each unique case.   ‘Ligamentum I’ coffee table   The Ligamentum I coffee table is made from walnut and glass.Dimensions: 160cm (w) x 45cm (h) x 75cm (d).Read more here.   'Ligamentum II' Chaise longue   The Ligamentum II chaise longue is made from walnut and a Mulberry fabric.
