Thirston Morris- Furniture Designer Maker

William Morris, one of the founders of the Arts and Crafts movement in around 1860 said, “Have nothing in your houses which you don’t either know to be useful or believe to be beautiful.”

I believe I can achieve both, by designing and building fine furniture which fulfils its functional requirements, while at the same time being beautiful.

Added to which, through the use of traditional and contemporary construction methods, I build pieces which become heirlooms of the future and in so doing, make furniture which maintains and enhances its value over time.



Any of these furniture items can be customised to your tastes, allowing you the joy of owning your own unique piece of furniture to hand down for generations. If you would like to see more of Thirston's Fine Furniture, select "view more".  Each individual piece has its own detailed information.

In today’s retail environment with mass produced products purchased from generic retail outlets, commissioning furniture is a unique experience.

To have a piece of furniture designed especially for you, taking into account all of your requirements, whether it is a specific design idea or style, or to fulfil a space and functional requirement, is an exciting and deeply satisfying process, which results in a rare and unique piece of furniture.
