Furniture

Old_Melrose_Furniture_Studio__1359Old Melrose Furniture Studio is the home of ‘Tim Hodgson Furniture’.  Tim has been designing & making both contemporary & traditional hand crafted furniture since he graduated from a 3 year college course in furniture design, manufacture & restoration in 1999.

Tim has undertaken numerous commissions in this time both corporate and private. We offer a service that involves the client and the maker to achieve a piece of furniture that is unique and made to their exact specifications. Many people are tired of searching hundreds of retail outlets to find a piece of furniture and settling for something that is mass produced and often of a poor quality.

We aim to solve that problem and design and make you a piece of furniture that is unique and has your full input in the design process. All our furniture is made using timber from sustainable woodlands or reclaimed timber. Quite often furniture incorporates mixed media such as glass, metal and slate etc.
