My name is Tim Evershed. I work as a designer and craftsman from my studio at the edge of the River Hamble in Hampshire.
I focus on fitness for purpose, proportion, material and form, delivering balanced design that sits well in both a traditional and contemporary setting for many years.
A piece of furniture crafted by hand will provide joy during the course of its lifetime. I use natural materials that have their own warmth and resonance. By using wood, leather and river rush as our medium, we can be sure that a piece of furniture becomes more beautiful the more that it is used.
Throughout 2017 and beyond I will be sourcing and drying my own timber responsibly on site. By doing so, I ensure greater ownership of the furniture making process, and so reduce our carbon footprint. As a furniture maker I believe that it’s our role to endorse sustainability and longevity through dedicated craftsmanship.
I formed Brook Studio in 2016 and now handcraft furniture to order as well as handle bespoke commissions for interior designers, architects and private clients. I also work on a freelance basis, collaborating with retailers and manufacturers.
