About Arbor


Originally studying Forestry and Countryside Management, Alex switched focus to his other passion in design after realising he'd rather be inside during the wetter and colder months of the year. A successful career of design followed, but after more than 10 years of designing for mass production in national retailers;  the need was deeply felt to go back to the woods; to create with his own hands and be in touch with materials at a source level once more. Arbor was established in 2018 combining his love of design and the creative making process.

Using only locally sourced sustainable woods, the products are often varied and imperfect by the nature of the available timbers and what they offer in creative partnership. 

We offer a flexible service catered to clients individual requirements from design and consultation, through the the making of the products. This can be one off pieces following current designs, and larger batches of bespoke items.
