Stephen Finch

Furniture, Wood

Stephen Finch designs and makes furniture by hand using Scottish native hardwoods.

Stephen is an Edinburgh based designer-maker of bespoke wooden furniture. He combines traditional joinery techniques and modern production methods in the pursuit of his craft. His work is precise with great attention to detail and is meticulously hand-finished to the highest quality.

Inspired by the philosophy and style of George Nakashima and the clean lines of Mid Century Modern design, Stephen strives for an elegant and simple aesthetic which makes the best use of the timber’s characteristics combined with his own craftsmanship.

Locally sourced wood gives his work a palette of tones, grain and character that reflects the natural environment and Scottish landscape. Stephen’s work frequently employs contrasting and complementary elements – rough textures against smooth, dark tones against light – making them work harmoniously together. Often using a single piece of wood as inspiration, he creates furniture to cherish for generations.
