Furniture Design & Making in Cumbria
With over 40 years’ experience, Peter Hall & Son are one of the leading furniture makers in the North of England. Our showroom and furniture-making workshop are based in Staveley, Cumbria, in the southern region of the Lake District. Having this beautiful countryside on our doorstep has provided an appreciation of nature and the beauty of natural forms found in the carefully selected woods and other natural materials used in our furniture designs.
Peter Hall & Son’s furniture designs often take inspiration from the Arts and Crafts Movement; designs are not over-embellished and each piece of furniture relies on the beauty of the wood. Often perceived as a traditional style of furniture design, the Arts and Crafts Movement which rose to prominence in the late 1800s, has seen a recent resurgence, due to the simplicity of design and clever twists in the use of materials. Jeremy Hall uses his practical knowledge of furniture-making and strong understanding of materials to interpret the Arts and Crafts Movement with a contemporary slant. Peter Hall & Son will never forget its roots, and this is evident in the traditional manufacturing methods used in our workshops, but understands the need to adopt a more contemporary style. This is achieved through the choice of unusual woods or veneers, and the incorporation of glass and locally sourced Lakeland slate. The skill of the furniture maker is still paramount, highlighted by finely hand-cut drawer dovetails, serpentine fronts, curved rails, splayed legs and each piece finished with a hand carved logo.
Most of our furniture is truly bespoke. If there is a piece of furniture illustrated on our website that particularly appeals to you, but it does not fit your exact requirements, please contact us. If you have a piece of furniture in mind, for your home or office, then Jeremy will be able to help you make your vision a reality.
