The Arts & Crafts Movement of the 19th century respected the integrity of the craftsman, the honesty of natural materials and the eloquence of immaculate proportion; ideals at the heart of the Batheaston collection.
Each piece of furniture you order from the Batheaston range will be hand-made individually for you, using traditional furniture making techniques.
The simple, timeless designs are produced from solid natural wood, including Oak & Ash taken from trees only from sustainable woodlands.
As each piece is individually hand-made, dimensions may vary slightly from piece to piece.
In November 1961 the Rural Industries Bureau held a furniture restoration course at their workshops in Wimbledon, which led to the chance meeting of Tom Benham from Bath and Richard Gill from Skipton who became firm friends.
From farming stock in Somerset and the Yorkshire Dales, where traditionally the first son took over the ancestral farm and any other offspring had to look for alternative employment in the rural community, whether it be blacksmith, wheelwright, farrier or furniture maker, it is no real surprise that these two men were practically minded, making a living with their hands.
