--Richard Buckingham Furniture

Introduction


I
trained at Buckinghamshire College, High Wycombe, in furniture Design and Craftsmanship.
On Graduating in 1994 I worked as a cabinetmaker for Waywood, an established company specializing in bespoke hardwood furniture.

In 1996 I joined Pendrym Furniture of Looe, Cornwall, where I worked as a part of a two-man team producing one-off designs and a wide range of subcontract projects for some of Britain's leading furniture companies.

Now venturing out alone and working from Roskilly's Farm on the Lizard Peninsular, I am producing work to my own designs, using European hard woods and other appropriate materials inspired by my Cornish surroundings.

Whilst concentrating on natural colour and texture, I aim to produce practical furniture which,is only intended to become precious through it's use.
