Designer and Maker of Bespoke Contemporary Furniture

David Mawdsley has a passion for making furniture and was fortunate to study furniture design and making at Loughborough University and graduated in 1982. Before establishing Mawdsley Williams in 2005 David worked as a cabinet Maker for a church furnishing company and taught Design Technology in Secondary schools. 


David  designs and makes beautiful and unique furniture in his workshop. He designs contemporary hand made furniture that is comfortable to use and live with. To him good wood makes good furniture. Natural forms, architectural shapes, unusual grain patterns in timber and decorative joint detailing influence his designs. Each piece of wood chosen has its own natural characteristics; clients are assured that the piece of furniture made for them is unique.
