 Jeremy Broun creates unique furniture and other objects  using structure as the aesthetic, exploring form, material, technique and function. A celebration of the potential of wood to say something new in each piece and to hopefully hand down.


About Jeremy Broun

Jeremy Broun established a small furniture workshop in Bath in 1973 and without any capital and with limited tools created his own unique style of furniture designs shaped very much by those limitations. Early travels to Scandinavia and later a Churchill Travel Scholarship to Sweden, Finland and Italy

visiting factories and workshops influenced his approach. His jouney is documented in a series of videos called The Carpenter's Tale.  


Jeremy Broun's lifetime passion for wood and furniture has culminated in a major project called 'Furniture Today' - where he uniquely documents the designer maker revolution against a historical backcloth of furniture dating back to the Magna Carta. He tells the inside story of the 1970s British Craft Furniture Revival that he was part of and which has paved the way for the work of today. Watch preview videos
