Pete Brown specialises in quality bespoke pieces crafted from sustainable hardwood. His genuinely unmistakeable style combines a love of elegant geometry developed during formal art and design training, with a solid understanding of utility gained through years of industrial experience. The combination of unique, visually arresting design with a rare attention to detail has resulted in a body of work that is guaranteed to be considered antiques of future generations.
Following an eight month residency at a chateau in the French Languedoc, Pete returned with his family to his native Scotland, settling in the village of Eskdalemuir. he thrives on the purity of his rural surroundings, in which he has built his workshop, and when he’s not working in the latter, he can be ususally found in the former as a member of the local Mountain Rescue Team.
