Back in 2004, when we started Eat Sleep Live, the goal was to provide a high-quality but affordable alternative to the mass-produced, flat-pack furniture that had become so popular in recent years. Our ambition was to provide a bespoke approach to crafting solid wood furniture, one which would provide each and every customer with a personal service and a unique piece of beautiful rustic furniture, for life. Since then, we’re very proud that our range of handmade wooden furniture has evolved and grown, while staying true to the ethos we laid out at the very start. Please take some time to explore our website and exclusive range of chunky rustic wood furniture. We can send you a free set of colour samples to help you decide which finish will work best in your home. Alternatively feel free to give us a call on 01159 700 060 or pop into our showroom for a chat!
Our handmade wooden furniture starts its journey many years before it arrives in your home. We source our solid wood from beautiful, historic buildings all over the UK. Some recent examples of the heritage sites we have extracted our wood from include the recent Kings Cross re-developments in London, a Victorian manor house in Yorkshire, several old mills and schoolhouses, and an 18th century brewery in Burton on Trent, to name but a few! The average age of our wood is between one and two hundred years and its natural character comes through in every individual piece of luxury rustic furniture - each beam has its own history and story to tell.
Once we’ve rescued the solid beams from their previous life we carefully de-nail, prepare and sand each one by hand. This process means the reclaimed wood keeps its natural character before it’s lovingly handcrafted into a piece of beautiful rustic wood furniture.
The debut piece we designed for Eat Sleep Live’s chunky rustic furniture range was the Hudson dining table. Since then our collection has grown to incorporate other collections and types of reclaimed wood furniture including beds, TV stands, coffee tables, shelving units, plus many others! We have also increased the number of expert craftsmen in our team, who handcraft your luxury solid wood furniture with the same high level of care and attention to detail for each piece before we deliver your new rustic furniture to your home. All the best Mark, Leah, Rach and the team
