Daniel Harrison is an award winning furniture designer and maker, creating pieces from his studio near the coal-mining town of Ammanford in South Wales. Daniel uses traditional hand tools alongside modern digital machinery, essential for the contemporary furniture he makes. His deep respect for wood ensures that it’s natural beauty is celebrated and lives on in a new form for future generations. We use native sustainable woods in this collection - Daniel hand selects trees that once stood within a 15-mile radius of his local sawmill. Once ordered, information will be provided about the particular tree from which your furniture is derived, including location and care instructions.
