Benedict O’Boyle creates beautiful bespoke hardwood furniture, crafts and modern furniture solutions for your home. Bringing together your ideas, with his expertise to give you functional furniture that meets your needs and looks fantastic. From simple storage solutions to heirloom pieces, Benedict will design and create unique furniture for unique people. Benedict often allows the natural grain of the timber do the talking, but certainly isn’t afraid to go all out with a “wow” piece. Art Deco curves, contrasting woods, hand-cut dovetails, inlays and the works, challenges accepted.
He clearly has a less serious side too; with his “TV Easel” a wooden artist’s Easel for your flat screen, the timber bicycle hanger and crocodile shaped scooter racks, ideal to get them off the floor and onto the wall. Benedict uses beautiful materials to create accessories that solve modern problems and make life more convenient, function leads the way but form is always close behind. We all want something that works…but that doesn’t mean it cant be beautiful too.
