  • Biography
Gavin Robertson has developed a reputation for creating furniture that represents British craftsmanship at its very best.
In particular he has become known for his imaginative use of wood in the design of furniture, using a balance of traditional and modern techniques to achieve the best possible result whether for an individual piece or an entire room.

The ethos of Gavin Robertson is to fuse contemporary design with exquisite cabinet making. Woods used range from the more traditional walnut and sycamore to bold and highly figured burr oak
