Edward Johnson Studio
The Edward Johnson studio is at the heart of our business. Whether a complete re-invention or just a slight tweak on an existing design, the real art of creating our designs is achieving perfection first time. Our designer-maker relationship is a rare and integral part of how we achieve such high standards, success within our industry and most importantly continued client satisfaction.
“Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.”
Having a creative studio, well equipped workshop and an experienced team, allows Edward to push his designs and stretch the limits of materials and forms. As an accomplished cabinet maker himself, Edward’s approach to design is steeped in his understanding of his materials and his mastered ability to engineer in wood. The combination of this experience coupled with his creative aptitude is the driving force behind every project. Edward takes great inspiration from the William Morris golden rule (above) and applies his own ethos when creating his considered designs.
“Design it as though you would live with it. Be progressive, innovative, forward thinking – whatever you call it – look at a problem or object and always aim to improve it. Challenge yourself to be more able and knowledgeable tomorrow than you are today, you can always do better!”
The furniture we design and make is always based on a brief, whether set by the client, a conceptual idea or a mixture of both. The designs always have function and form at the fore. Whilst reflecting Edward’s unique style, each piece also has a good chunk of character from the clients themselves, bringing together the symbiotic relationship between designer-maker and client.
If you are looking for ideas and inspiration, why not make an appointment to visit our studio, where you can see first-hand some examples of our finished ‘Made & Ready’ pieces and take a tour around our workshop to see work in progress.
