About Denner Smith Furniture
Following a career in the public service, and having lived and worked abroad for much of his life, Jeremy built upon a lifelong interest in working with wood by training as a professional furniture designer/maker. At his workshop in Quarley, Hampshire (shown here) he designs and makes unique and original pieces of furniture on commission, and designs and makes a variety of smaller, but equally beautiful and functional, objects in wood and complementary materials.
Jeremy Smith - Designer/Maker
Whilst much of his bespoke furniture incorporates classical design features, he is equally at home creating modern and contemporary pieces, bringing traditional and long-established construction techniques to his work. He will work with a client to ensure that the finished item embodies the best possible fusion of form and function, whilst emphasising the natural look and feel of the wood.
An item of bespoke furniture may be constructed entirely from solid hardwood (for example Oak, Ash, Maple, Sycamore, Elm, Walnut, Chestnut, Cherry, and Beech) or may incorporate veneers cut from an impressive array of species. They offer an amazing range of colours, figuring, and visual effects (e.g., the 3-dimensional effect of a ‘rippled’ figure). Veneers, used in combination with solid hardwoods, can create a truly spectacular and highly individual piece. All timbers used will be from sustainable sources.
