Roger Davies Furniture


Roger designs and produces contemporary furniture at his workshop studio located in Founders Heritage Park in Nelson.  He is a meticulous craftsman/joiner and fine furniture maker who combines his craft traditions with original designs and contemporary technological innovations to create furniture and functional objects.  Some of his creations are simple, elegant reconstructions from a bygone era; others are extraordinarily beautiful and innovative designs for the modern age. 


Whether a hand-crafted bathroom cabinet or a steam-bent, vacuum-moulded chair Roger’s work expresses his dedication to the integrity of his materials with a reliable, functional aesthetic.






Commissions are a major part of Roger Davies Furniture. 

Roger takes a lot of time to find out the customer’s requirements in order to fulfil the customer’s brief 

Roger's trade as a boat builder involved him in the design and construction of wooden boat interiors and he became intrigued by the relationships between form and function.  Later Roger gained a Diploma in Visual Arts (Furniture), enabling him to develop his skills into contemporary furniture design.


Roger is a designer with a huge amount of practical experience.  He has spent his working life creating pieces that often require ingenuity to resolve issues that arise in order to achieve the look and functionality of these original works
