John Piekaar Fine Bespoke Furniture
As a Designer / Craftsman of fine contemporary furniture, John Piekaar designs and makes bespoke furniture working closely in the creative process with his private clients. Each piece is made by hand selecting from a range of high quality hardwoods – his approach is to deliver contemporary design using traditional wood working techniques, to produce a fine piece of heirloom quality furniture.Work is also undertaken in collaboration with architects and interior designers.
Inspiration is taken from the natural world or architectural details. Sometimes the smallest scraps of wood can inspire the next chest of drawers or hall table.
As the projects are commission based, the process is a collaboration between client and maker. The design proposal is then supplemented with drawings, scale models and timber samples.
Please contact me if you are interested in commissioning a piece of furniture. A selection of my work can also be found at Craft NI Gallery in Belfast.
