About Me

Personal Statement

Christopher Butler has been designing and making fine furniture for over twenty years and is now recognised as one of Scotland's most accomplished craftsmen. From his workshop in the Scottish Borders he produces furniture to commission for private and corporate clients, each piece designed to suit an individual requirement. The process of commissioning is a very personal one and from initial discussions with the customer and surveying the proposed site for the piece, through making, to final delivery and installation - absolute care is taken to ensure furniture of enduring quality and satisfaction.

Furniture is made predominantly in native hardwoods, such as oak, cherry, chestnut, ash, often coupled with detailing in fruitwoods, laburnum, bog oak, - and sometimes with the introduction of other complementary materials, such as leather, slate and metals to enhance the subtle detail of the design. Designs are contemporary, often understated, allowing the inherent quality of the timber to show through. This is achieved through experience, with the full knowledge of how the material behaves and an understanding of the engineering involved in constructing a piece of furniture that will give good service and enduring pleasure over the years to come.

As well as commissioned items, the workshop occasionally produces furniture in small batches and special pieces for exhibition.

Year Established: 1990
