Stephen Finch designs and makes furniture by hand using Scottish native hardwoods. The furniture he builds is “honest, approachable and uncluttered” (maybe, he thinks, that’comes from growing up in the Peak District, a place of dramatic landscapes and people who get straight to the point’).
Trained at Jewel & Esk College, Stephen began his career at Woodschool near Jedburgh. He went on to become a Director of Real Wood Studios – a collective of furniture-makers specialising in the use of Scottish native hardwoods. After a decade in the Scottish Borders, Stephen moved back to Edinburgh to share a workshop space with fellow furniture maker, Tom Cooper, at Newbattle Abbey Business Park, near Dalkeith. Three years on, he took the big step in 2019 to set up his own workshop.
Stephen lives in Edinburgh, in East Lothian.
