Furniture Designer / Maker

Jeremy Armstrong is a self taught furniture designer / maker working from a converted haybarn in between Bath and Bristol. He produces one off pieces, rarely repeating a design.

His influences are varied from eastern to shaker and art deco with music and sculpture thrown in. He uses wood , glass and metal with special attention paid to the colour and pattern of the wood.

Balance and symmetry are important elements in his work, using simple shapes and designs to make built in and freestanding furniture and lighting.

This years Furnish 2 exhibition at the Paintworks in Bristol was a showcase of fourteen local furniture designer/makers. The gallery space was great and there was an interesting range of work on display, most of it available to buy or to commission. The private view was well attended.

I exhibited some prototypes of new lights that I have been working on recently as well as some of my black walnut furniture.

I want to make the lights in walnut and glass next and work on some related ideas so look out for next years Furnish 3 exhibition.

The Lights are in development. I used poplar to start with as its easy to work with and has interesting colour and perspex which gives a cool white light. I have used low energy bulbs but there are many different possibilities.

 

 

The next ones will be in black walnut and glass. All are available in different sizes and materials with prices varying accordingly.
