"We are proud to announce the re-launch of our website:"
Take a glimpse at the extraordinary world of James Verner Furniture. Visitors to the new website will find a wealth of new pieces to explore on line as well as entirely new areas showcasing the different directions our work is going in.
Visit the Commission tab and learn how a piece of furniture is "born". Trace its development from an initial enquiry through the design process to manufacture and then delivery and/or installation.

The other shows how "Elliptoid" (below) a collection of upholstered pieces for a sensitively restored and important Arts and Crafts manor house.......................................................................(read more).
The "Work" tab allows you to browse recent work by the studio. Ranging from entire interior schemes designed in collaboration with leading international architects - such as this Kitchen (above) which was produced for a seaside home in association with award winning Azman Architects - to exquisitely detailed pieces such as this  Jewellery Box (below) which features a marquetry map of the world on its lid, studded with rubies to indicate places the clients have visited on their travels. We're glad to say regular visits to the clients' home are needed to insert more rubies!
Visit the Shop section of the website to see the exciting array of works for sale. All of these are ready for immediate dispatch and represent the opportunity to purchase special pieces, many of which were created alongside challenging commissions in order to work out individual design issues.
bLOC, (above) for example was created to show how the corner of a much larger glass table might appear and to work out some structural issues.
