Making Furniture

At Free Range Designs, we have been creating handmade and bespoke reclaimed furniture since 1994. We believe in only using materials that are sustainably sourced, and have the lowest environmental impact.

The way we run our business is reflected in the way we live our lives. We love and appreciate the beautiful surroundings in which we live and our reclaimed furniture designs are inspired by the wonders of the natural world. The beautiful organic shapes of the materials used in our furniture mirrors our approach of being guided by nature.

A sustainable business for us means staying small, keeping local and operating on a human level at one with nature.

Our Workshop in Wales

We are fortunate to work in a beautiful part of the world. Glandyfi Farm is just outside Machynlleth in Mid Wales on the southern edge of Snowdonia National Park. The farm name means 'on the banks of the river Dyfi' and we could hardly be closer to the forests, rivers and sea from where we source many of our materials.

Formerly used for housing sheep and cattle, our workshop buildings have been transformed into a productive hub of creativity (but still with lots of on-looking sheep).

Thanks to the internet and our friendly local courier service we are able to operate from this stunning rustic setting and ship a little piece of our rural idyll out to all four corners of the UK.

what's important to us

Handcrafted Eco Furniture

Free Range Designs is a small family run business comprising a team of local craftspeople. Small really is beautiful for us and we have no intentions of growing to the size of IKEA.

We love making furniture and composting toilets and we love using materials that are on our doorstep: reclaimed Welsh fence posts; fallen oak branches; driftwood from the rivers and sea.

We believe in making furniture we are proud of and that our customers can fall in love with. The smaller the environmental impact and the closer to nature the better. The happier the makers and the happier the customers the better, too!
