S. F. Furniture is a partnership of two well – matched makers. Ian Heseltine, the more serious of the two, and Declan O’Donoghue, the irrepressibly optimistic Irishman. They work successfully either together or alone as the mood takes them or as their clients demand. They come at design problems from opposite perspectives: Declan’s approach is more conceptual, starting with the form and impact of the finished piece, using more than one variety of timber, assuming always that the piece can be built. Ian’s approach is more technical beginning with the function of the piece, how it will work and the making process, introducing the aesthetics as the design progresses, rarely mixing woods. Thus, two disparate elements that combine to make a unified whole.

Подпись: Silver Lining "It is the satisfaction of knowing you hove done a good job; the client feels it is value for money and that it is collectable." Mark Boddington

Подпись:S. F. FurnitureWinning prizes for arts and crafts subjects at school encouraged Mark Boddington to take up a career in furniture making rather than following his father into the family business. Apart from a future in politics, one of Mark’s goals is to make limited edition furniture which will make his work available to a wider audience, as he acknowledges that fine design and craftsmanship can be very expensive. In the meantime, his enjoyment at securing a commission from a difficult client is surpassed only by the return of a client for more work, be it in twelve months or twelve years.
