Timothy  Hawkins - Fine Furniture

About Us

Furniture Designer Maker Timothy Hawkins

All our furniture is designed and made by award winning designer maker and Master Craftsman Timothy Hawkins.

For Tim, this work is a vocation rather than simply a profession and his aim continues to be to create unique pieces of furniture for you & future generations to treasure.

Tim's extraordinary designs can now be found not only in many private dwellings & churches but also in such diverse places as Hereford Cathedral; an Oxford College building; various boardrooms, an Academy and a castle - very interesting commissions from extremely discerning clients!

The Victoria & Albert Museum in London advised Tim some years ago to sign all his work ~ in fact he has always done so, with his acorn 'makers mark'. 

Tim's natural affinity for woodworking came from his forebears, who were highly skilled ecclesiastical woodcarvers, their work living on in Cathedrals and churches both in Britain and abroad. 

As a child Tim began making small, useful wooden items for family and friends, then simple pieces of furniture for local retailers once he had left Art College.

In 1980 (aged twenty-one and with support from his parents) Tim started his own business, selling directly from his workshop at first and then displaying his unique designs within his own showroom.

Since that time he has been making furniture of the finest quality, with the assistance of his long-serving craftsman, Keith Jones.

Further commissions from previous clients are testament to Tim's skill as a cabinet maker & to his commitment to maintaining the very highest standards with every single piece that he makes.

Using time-honoured methods and the finest quality woods he creates pieces that he hopes will give lasting satisfaction, enhancing the spaces for which they have been designed. 

Whether you would like something for yourself or are looking for a special gift for someone else then we will be happy to help and advise.

Should you wish to discuss a possible commission with Tim at the time of your visit then please contact us in advance to arrange an appointment, as there are occasions when he may not be available.

Towards the end of 2014 Tim turned his furniture showroom into a multi-media Art & Craft gallery, the Timothy Hawkins Gallery. The gallery subsequently re-located from Bartestree to Church Street in the ancient heart of Hereford City, showing original contemporary work by other UK artisans alongside Tim's furniture. 

All the timber that Tim buys from our suppliers has been certified by them as having come from sustainable sources and nothing is wasted, either being sold as firewood or, if reduced to sawdust, given free of charge to a local stables.
