About

The Idea.

Furniture made by hand in North Cornwall

Jacques Cabin was created to give an interesting alternative to mass-production furniture. Each piece is designed and hand built in a small workshop near the North Cornwall coast. Using salvaged, scrap wood, we create individual and quirky pieces full of history and personality.

The Furniture.

Combining old school craftsmanship and a love of design, we make one-off pieces of furniture, hand-picking every bit of timber to complement each individual design.  No two products are ever the same and are truly original.

We will be adding new products to our ‘Shop’ page regularly, but if you see something that you like in the Gallery, or are looking for an over-sized or bespoke piece for your home or business, we can work with you to make this happen……please drop us a line.

The Materials.

Reclaimed materials possess an inherent quality and history which new wood cannot match.  It is impossible to fake the character and texture of old timbers. This is why we choose to use salvaged materials, which we source locally.

We actively leave in evidence of the timber’s previous use, such as handle marks, dents, cut-outs, scratches and other general wear marks, all adding to the appeal of the furniture.

ETCETERA.

Whilst sourcing materials, we sometimes come across interesting, often vintage items, which complement our furniture perfectly. You will find these for sale on our ‘Shop’ page.

Jacques Cabin is run by Rich Inight, who has spent the last 20+ years making things from wood, mainly ‘bespoke’ furniture. Rich is now designing and making the sort of furniture he loves to make, from his workshop near Bude, North Cornwall.

It is really important to us that Jacques Cabin has a minimal impact on the environment. Using recycled, scrap timber, as well as making and selling our furniture in the UK, helps us to achieve this. We always try to eke out as much as we possibly can from every piece of timber so there is little or no waste. Any offcuts are put to good use heating the workshop.
