About

At Home with the Beavers

Here at Local Beavers, we are passionate about our home - we spend so much time in it and we want it to be just right. That's why we extended our passion to helping others achieve the same in their homes! We love making and sourcing unique design items that thrill, delight and inspire; we know you'll love them too.

Wether it's the table lamp that's a talking point at every gathering, the shelving unit that adds a modern twist to a classic room or just the random piece of art that 'sits' exactly right; we have it and we can get it to you fast, reliably and with minimum fuss.

I am a true second generation woodsman, and everything we sell is handcrafted personally by me.

Sourcing.
Our items are made from locally sourced materials. Timber from local woodyards, grown sustainably and responsibly.

Who we are.
We are based in Poland, the co-founders (A husband - British - and wife - Ukrainian - team) having decided to live there after meeting while I was working for an IT company in Ukraine. We fell in love and got married shortly after..

A while later, I realised I was not satisfied with the company I worked for and set up what became LocalBeavers. Hannah, my wife soon joined me, and, with her bent for decoration and design; she added the style and flair to my craftsman furniture.

Between us, we created a team and have been working and supporting the local ex-pat community in Ukraine & Poland for several years. Now with the addition of out shops, site and support team, we are able to provide the same level of service, style and creativity to clients around the world. We are very happy and hoping to expand the family soon! When we do, you will be the first to know!

Shipping.
Our shipping has been described by some as 'expensive'. We disagree, when you factor in the time it takes us to deal with returns and breakages, the time it to takes you to do the same, along with parcels left in bins and in trees (Yes, this happened), we decided to make sure that the quality of our shipping matched our items.

Of course, if you have a preference or a courier service you love, we will be happy to accommodate you - just drop us a line at contact [!at] localbeavers.com and someone will look after you, however requests of this nature are undertaken at your own risk. We spent a lot of time interviewing and testing courier services around the world. We wanted to test their reliability, transparency, ease of parcel collection and communication and are happy that we use the best.


We want your time with us to be as delightful as possible. The items that you'll purchase are as much a reference for us, as they are beautiful additions to your home.

Frequently asked questions
I gave the wrong address on my order and now the item has been returned to you//Lost?

We love providing great customer service - and if we can do something, of course we will! But it is not our responsibility, and this does not mean we are accepting responsibility.

PLEASE check the shipping address on the order BEFORE and AFTER placing it.

If we need to reship an order, we may do any or all of the following, or something else.

1 - Ask you to pay for the reshipping cost and we ship another out to you immediately, by the fastest available method.

2 - Ask you to pay a handling fee and refund the remaining from the order total (Inc shipping).

We are a VERY small team - just Hannah and I, & do not have available cash to refund or reship due to customer error, much as we would love to. :( Please check addresses!!

Are your lamps and boards really handmade? The cuts seem very perfect and the finish seems very professional?

Thank you! :D In fact, George went into the local branch of the DIY superstore we buy our tools from, and the guard on the door on the way out wanted to see the receipt for the spice rack he was carrying (Having just bought new picture hooks for the backs). He was very excited. Truth is he is just really skilled at making things. We will upload some pics of our workspace and so on soon :) Check our website too for our photo galleries! :)

Wholesale availability

We often get asked about providing wholesale on our lamps. The answer is although we would love the opportunity, each lamp is unique. Once the bottles are used and designed into a lamp, it becomes one of a kind. Unfortunately, unless you have an idea for a collection or selection you'd like, we can't do this. Sorry!

Custom and personalised orders

Can you build me something? Answer: Yes! George loves a challenge and will be more than happy to work with you to design something that is perfect, either size or item-wise, for you and/or your home! We have built a few things, including lamps, home decor style pieces and various planters and so on. We can work with wood, electronics (LED or generic lamps) and a selection of metalwork is available. We will ask for a deposit on the item when work begins, with the remainder paid when we are ready to ship your item. Go nuts, let your imagination go and let's see what we can come up with for you :D
