“Being surrounded by great, handcrafted products most of my life has definitely had an impact on how I now design and create my furniture.” To founder and Creative Director, Timothy Oulton, knowledge of ageless craftsmanship, meticulous attention to detail, and uncompromising quality, are the key ingredients in producing his classic, timeless collections
Each Timothy Oulton piece is handcrafted by a dedicated team of craftsman using only the best techniques and fabrications – from hand carving and traditional joinery to unique hand finishing processes for leather, these time-honoured techniques breathe new life into a range of authentic, raw materials.
“Our goal is to make the best product on the planet… whatever we do, it has to be the best in class, and we do it to the best of our ability,” says Tim. Whether it requires sanding down a piece of salvaged wood by hand, or hammering in 700 brass nails one by one, each product is painstakingly created over an extraordinary amount of time in the pursuit of Oulton’s high standards.
Irregularities are preserved and individuality is celebrated, and no two pieces are ever alike. Reclaimed timbers and found objects are lovingly restored by hand, while vintage-inspired creations are organically scuffed up just so, resulting in a collection that champions individuality, functionality, and form. It is these values that form the cornerstone of every Timothy Oulton collection, where each piece has a unique story of its own, a sense of heritage and an integrity that is rooted in a collective aspiration for excellence.
