Our Story

From an early age I had a passion for woodworking after watching my dad build most of the furniture in our family home.

I quickly found a love for creating wooden furniture at school. After studying Art, Design Technology & Business studies I wanted to turn my hobby into a business...Ben Simpson Furniture was born!

1st Year
The Garden Shed

Once I had sourced the highest quality materials, I started to create a range of rustic inspired solid wooden furniture and shelving.

After a few years building furniture and growing the business from my parents shed I teamed up with long time friend and school mate Luke Kiernan.

Building the business
The Partnership

Luke started out much the same as me, developing a love for creating wooden furniture at school, furthering his skills by studying Product design & Business Studies at college. This allowed Luke to develop his knowledge of design and product placement in the market.

After teaming up with Luke we started designing a new range of Rustic Industrial shelving and furniture. The brief was to infuse rustic timber with classic ironmongery to create a new Industrial style.

Fast-forward 8 years, the business has grown into a purpose built workshop in West Sussex. With the focus now on manufacturing a wide range of handmade wooden products while creating a sustainable e-commerce business.
