Inspired By Nature

Bespoke furniture design inspired by nature

At Born of Wood, we feel extremely lucky to have Yorkshire as our base. “God’s Own County”, it is an area blessed with so much natural beauty. We’ve been lucky to have our furniture making workshops in both Ilkley and Shipley – each location sitting within a stones throw of the Yorkshire Dales.

It’s an area that transfixes and we can’t help but be inspired by these surroundings.
The Yorkshire Dales includes some of the finest limestone scenery in the UK, from crags and pavements to underground labyrinths of caves.

Stone-built villages sit amongst traditional farming landscapes of field barns, drystone walls and flower-rich hay meadows, and show how the area has been shaped over thousands of years by the people who have lived and worked here.


Focussed attention. Attention to detail.

It is perhaps our beautiful environment that helps us at Born of Wood focus our attention and give us standout in our bespoke furniture creations. We find ourselves naturally drawn to the patterns, colours and contrasts present in nature – and find that these will often find their way into our work both consciously and simply as an unconscious act as the nature on our doorstep inspires us without us even realising.

Natural materials. Beautiful creations.

The uniqueness of each piece of wood we work and the natural materials we use lend themselves to the creation of a living piece of furniture. Furniture with life and spirit.
Whether your custom made furniture demands the perfection found in nature, or the unique and messy chaos of untamed wood grain – our access to the finest natural sources for the materials we use allow us a mastery of all that nature blesses us with.


Let’s create a natural wonder for you

From the minute we are contacted by a potential customer we work as closely as possible with them to ensure that what we create for them feels very much their own creation – the customer injecting their own passion, enthusiasm and soul into their Born of Wood creation. If you’d like a new addition to your home, to meet your unique requirements and designed to complement your uniquely styled home, please do get in touch.
