Meet the Designer: Ted Jefferis

Posted on Jul 30, 2016 by

Part four of a five part editorial series in which we look at talented craftspeople who’s work celebrates the beauty of British wood. Combining traditional techniques and modern applications, they demonstrate a deep appreciation of the innate qualities of the material and a concern that it speaks for itself. The effect is, naturally, striking.

Woodworking is firmly engrained in Ted Jefferis’ family. The son of a traditional boat builder, he launched his debut furniture collection in 2014 and has since won widespread recognition and awards for his distinctive designs.

Ted has a passion for natural timber and is fastidious in his selection of British hard woods. Based in his family’s workshop, in the heart of oak woodland, he hand crafts elegant, sustainable pieces with ‘heirloom quality’. Every item of furniture is made to order and is available in custom sizes and colours.
