At the heart of a great craftsman there is an innate desire to use skill and passion to create beautiful objects for others to cherish and enjoy. Tim Hitchens, founder of Design by Timber, embodies this and has been crafting bespoke pieces from his Wiltshire Workshop since 2000.

As both designer and maker Tim is able to take an idea from a sketch in his notebook right through to the finished article sitting in your home. Many of his creations explore the use of wood and combining other materials to create original multifunctional pieces which challenge convention. Tim’s ideas, eye for detail and quality of finish are really what sets him apart. So if you are after a friendly personable service, thoughtful design and buckets of creativity, you’ve come to the right place!
