Tim Evershed is a designer and craftsman whose work is defined by timeless design, durability, thoughtful detailing and an appreciation for the natural materials that he uses. His career combines a background in design and training in practical cabinetmaking.
Through his work, Tim responds to the archetypes of the Shaker movement, Mid-century design and Windsor chair vernacular, by interpreting them for modern living, using both traditional woodworking techniques and digital craft practices.
Tim works with interior designers, architects and private clients. Projects range from bespoke furniture commissions and small batch production runs crafted at his studio in Hampshire, to public art and commercial interiors, employing his design expertise to realise large scale projects in collaboration with some of the best manufacturers in the UK.
Sustainability is important to Tim, who sources timber from local tree surgeons and sawmills across the South of England. Some of this timber, he air dries himself on-site, ensuring complete ownership of the furniture making process.
Tim is alumni of the Crafts Councils' renowned Hot House programme and sells work through galleries and retailers nationwide and internationally. He has also held practical demonstrations on the subject of Craftsmanship at universities.
