Our Story

A proud family run business...

We began our journey in 2013 in Derbyshire. Joshua the company founder was in marketing at the time for an estate agents and previously tried and tested various small businesses. He was always determined to become an entrepreneur and find work he was passionate about!

After work Joshua would go home to continue his search for his next venture, working from his kitchen table he set out to find a nice unique office to desk to work from. After having constant unsuccessful attempts at finding anything suitable Joshua set out to create his own office desk using materials he liked the look of.

As you can imagine one thing led to another and after completing a welding course Joshua began to sketch, design and create his own style of furniture from his garden shed. Joshua loved the fact this style of furniture was handmade and offered both the industrial style and modern option, each piece can be made bespoke! After years of experience, the company has grown completing unique one-off projects and fitting out huge commercial offices! Joshua and his team pride themselves on offering excellent customer service and quality products which proves to be the reason why the business continues to grow to this date.

Bespoke Order Process


Tell us what item(s) your interested in, whether that is an item in our shop or something completely bespoke. Include sizes and any small details you think might help.

We will provide you with an estimated quote and lead time for your project. If you’re happy to continue we will require full payment before the order is processed.


Once payment has been completed we will sketch your design to confirm all measurements and finer details. Once you have approved this we will begin making your furniture!

It’s as simple as that!

It has been quite the journey to create such an amazing team! Since the beginning, each year has introduced new faces and the business has always presented new challenges! Meet the team!



The visionary. Always looking to improve and create new business. Joshua has worked in all the roles to create the business and is currently behind the computer on designs or quotes. That hard work mentality has been passed down from his father Roger!



Joshua’s father and ex Rolls Royce worker. If it needs to be done right and on time, Roger is the man for the job! When 10 tonnes of steel arrives at the workshop, Roger is found still smiling and ready for action! You may also see Roger on deliveries! He loves a coffee with 1 sugar!



Joe works alongside Joshua on all current and future projects! They are constantly looking at ways to improve the business and looking at future ideas and projects. Joe has some exciting projects on the go as we speak including the new Workstations!



Rhianna is the newest member to the team, organising the office, current projects and accounts. You might see Rhianna’s face in our up-and-coming photoshoots and videos! With this job comes modeling experience to add to the CV!



Colin is the head of his own family joinery business but never stops on the Russell Oak & Steel orders! Colin’s business grows as we do! It’s amazing all round for the family run businesses! When Colin is not in the workshop or quoting on the next job you’ll find Colin in the Alps skiing!



Keith is the comedian of the team, always looking to for the next prank to play! Just doesn’t like to smile when he’s modelling! Don’t let the scary face fool you, he is a true grafter and all-round loving family man!



We have 2 Colins in our team so Fred is his nickname! Fred enjoys the small and big oak jobs, when the order comes in you find Fred with tools in hand ready to go!  When he’s not glueing and sanding oak tops you’ll find him in the garden planting and growing vegetables! Just an all-round lovely man! Colin also makes a lovely cup of tea!
