Goldfinch Brookes Furniture
Furniture and Wood
Gareth 'Goldfinch' Brookes makes beautifully tactile pieces of wooden furniture from his small Manchester workshop. He considers his primary job is simply to make people happy. He wants his pieces to be enjoyed, touched, used well and then passed onto the next generation. He predominantly uses locally sourced timber, making sure all is FSC certified. Gareth loves to use hand tools when making his pieces. He wants to put as much care into it as possible, and believes when he sells one of his pieces, you are not just buying the furniture, but the hours of love and sweat that have gone into it as well. He really hopes you get as much pleasure from his work as he does making it.
