Derrick Ibbott

Designer Maker

I have been making things out of wood since I was a small boy. This passion led me to start up my business in 2000 after having worked for a succession of local furniture makers and restorers. In 2010 I received a bespoke guild mark and the prestigious Claxton Stevens award for Symphony No.1, from the Worshipful Company of Furniture Makers.

In designing furniture, I enjoy pushing the boundaries and love to make challenging pieces. This is most evident with my exhibition work such as Twist 2 table and chairs, Symphony No.1 and console table in Elm and copper leaf.

I also take great satisfaction from making commissioned furniture. I enjoy listening to clients needs and relish the challenge to find solutions that fit our clients exact needs.
