bentwood chair    SOLD

Nick Moore hails from the furniture town of High Wycombe, England where the Windsor chair was born and a large furniture industry flourished.

Having developed a love of woodwork at school, Nick went on to study Furniture Production and Management at Buckinghamshire Chiltern University. Over the next six years, he gained professional experience in restoration and upholstery. Nick travelled to Canada in 2005, to attend Rosewood Studio, School of Fine woodworking.  He soon began designing and building commission pieces for clients at home and abroad.

Nick and his wife Hilary manage a 100 acre organic farm in Lanark, Ontario. Nick divides his time seasonally between farming and furniture making.  Five years of working in the inspirational atmosphere of Rosewood Studio as ‘resident craftsman’ helped him develop a keen eye for detail and an appreciation for sound design.  Furniture restoration offers a valuable tool to learn what construction methods stand the test of time.

Nick really enjoys the challenge of designing and constructing pieces that are a product of beautiful woods and veneers, time-honoured craftsmanship and above all, working with a customer to create a truly bespoke piece.
