Video summary: Here I am, working on a custom order. Built in Oak and Wenge, this sofa bench took a very long time to build, the hand carved seat with honeycomb texture took seventeen hours alone!

Designer and maker of heirloom hardwood furniture.

Sam studied luthirie (guitar making) at the Sir John Cass Department of Art and Design at the London Metropolitan University (previously the London College of Furniture) where he gained a detailed knowledge of wood, the use of hand tools and the skills required to design and build acoustic guitars.

This training then allowed Sam to begin work as a cabinet maker in long established businesses building bespoke furniture, working on projects such as St Paul's Cathedral, Ripon Cathedral, Christchurch college Oxford and St Martin in the Fields at Trafalgar square.

After over fifteen years experience in fine woodworking, Sam created Last Leaf to combine his passions for wood, design and craftsmanship. Based just outside the historic city of York in the North Yorkshire countryside, the Last Leaf workshop was purpose built for furniture making, and every single piece that leaves the workshop is designed, handmade and finished by Sam himself. The timber selection and sourcing is also done entirely by Sam. It is a hugely important part of the furniture making process, and all the timber used for Last Leaf Furniture is sourced legally and responsibly.

The aim is simple. To design and make beautiful heirloom furniture, built to last, using time honoured cabinet making techniques, priced fairly and always, always with the maximum attention to detail.

Thank you and please feel free to get in touch to discuss any ideas you may have.
