Welcome to ardwood.com. Handmade wooden furniture.


My name is Alan Davidson. I design and build furniture and functional art.  I live and work in Middlesex, England, UK.

I offer two main services. Firstly I create wood and metal products, from reclaimed and renewable source wood, to my design that are available for you to purchase.




I also build bespoke made to measure wood furniture, please let me know what you would like me to build for you.



I've always had an inherent draw towards design and build. I've worked with lots of materials through my life, especially wood and various metals, and felt the time had come to let my creative juices flow.

I am influenced by many things, Victorian and Gothic architecture, industrial, shabby chic and weather worn timber.



Wood is a very tactile and versatile material and combining metal, leather and glass creates very interesting and unique furniture.




Check out my online shop or email with any design requests you might like me to discuss. Please browse through all the pages of my site and check regularly as new items will be added frequently.
