Furniture

Between them, Harry and Josh have been making solid hardwood furniture to commission for over forty years. Formerly as part of Bates and Lambourne, two years ago they decided to restructure the company to allow them to focus more exclusively on the delights of actually being at the bench designing and making furniture, without the additional complications of running a larger company. As BLAM Furniture Makers we specialise in chairs, tables and cabinetwork, predominantly using UK grown timber. Our work is made for domestic clients as well as various local churches and many of the colleges of Oxford and Cambridge.

Harry is a fourth generation chairmaker, whose great-grandfather and grandfather were practising their craft in High Wycombe when it was the biggest centre of chairmaking in the country. Josh can claim no such heritage, but he has built a printing press based on the one that William Blake would have used, for an exhibition at the Ashmolean Museum. As well as his furniture being in those churches and colleges, it may also be found in the Royal Marines' Stonehouse Barracks in Plymouth. He once made a house for a tortoise.

As well as our workshops being open, this year we are delighted also to be exhibiting with Artweeks in John Lewis' flagship store in Westgate Oxford.
