Hello! We're Jules and Paul and we're the proud owners of Simply Rustic Oak.
We create beautiful, bespoke, solid oak furniture from our garden workshop,
surrounded by the stunning countryside and wildlife in rural Lincolnshire.
We've always had an appreciation for traditional craftsmanship. And, living in the countryside, we love the unique, rustic and practical qualities that the mighty oak possesses. Nothing pleases us more than capturing the qualities of this beautiful wood to create unique pieces of furniture that are loved, built to last and (hopefully) passed down through generations.
We began Simply Rustic Oak in 2007 after attempting to find unique furniture for our own home. But we soon discovered that truly hand-crafted, solid oak furniture, that was also affordable, was rather hard to come by. Paul was originally trained as a mechanic so has always been very practical yet inventive with his hands. And so began Paul's self-taught journey into woodwork as he had a go at making our own furniture. The results were quite extraordinary, and from then on we were hooked! I (Jules) am I self-confessed people person. I love chatting with and helping our lovely customers to help turn their oak furniture dreams into reality. I'm so incredibly proud of the beautiful work Paul produces in our workshop, and each piece of furniture is lovingly crafted from sustainable, certified green, air dried and kiln dried oak.
We're delighted to offer our skills and expertise to help more people enjoy the beauty of oak in their own homes, in a way that is truly and entirely bespoke and hand-crafted.
