Welcome to Smokestack Designs

Design and manufacture of furniture with an Industrial Edge, for Home, Office, Shop, Bar, Restaurant…

Using reclaimed materials, paired with steel for Heavy Duty results.

With my background in retail display, trade fair stand design, shop-fitting and a love of industrial design, I took the plunge and set up a workshop in Newcastle.

I have made gifts for friends and family over the years, and it is great to now have the space to work on larger projects.

I tend to work with reclaimed wood, pairing it with galvanised steel to give my products a strong, industrial look, which (I hope) will last a lifetime without too much care.

Here are a selection of our 'off the shelf' products, and a few bespoke orders. We are constantly changing the range, and adapting bespoke orders to add to it.
If you would like any of our products in a slightly different size, please just ask, there would be no additional charge for small variations.
If you have something in mind, we may be able to help you design it, be it a shelf to fit an odd space, or a range of furniture for a bar or restaurant.
