Bespoke Furniture and Editions
Aidan McEvoy is an artist-craftsman whose chosen medium is wood. The bespoke furniture created by Aidan is designed to be the material realisation of the customer's vision of what they want, combined with Aidan's creative imagination and experience as a designer and craftsman.
All our furniture is handmade to the highest standards of craftsmanship. This gallery shows a small selection of our bespoke projects. Similar items can be made to order in a variety of timbers to suit your requirements, or you can use these as an inspiration to the design of your own unique piece of furniture.If you are considering commissioning an item of bespoke furniture, you can read about our commissioning process for more information or contact us to discuss your plans.
In addition to our bespoke furniture, which is designed and made to order, we also offer editions of designer furniture made to the same high standards, but available for immediate purchase.
We take the same uncompromising approach to design, material selection and, above all, craftsmanship, as we would with our bespoke furniture but these items are designed and produced as a limited edition to be available for immediate purchase.
Trial Day Keepsake Box
Despite being often undervalued, we think ash is one of the most beautiful and versatile timbers, with ripple ash, olive ash and white ash all coming from one and the same tree.
These boxes are entirely handmade from sustainably sourced ash, highlighting the different grain patterns and colours of this wood.
The design for this cup grew out of a love for good espresso and the curious idea of enhancing its flavour, similar to the process of ageing fine single malt whiskey.
The result: a simple and ergonomic espresso cup, made from a single block of walnut.
Aeastas Side Table
This side table is part of the Aestas body of design work and is a distillation directly inspired by the Coronation Table commissioned for Buckingham Palace in 2013.
The table top resembles a flower with the tips of the petals dropping down to the ground.
Bespoke Elm Dining Table
The design brief for this table in English Elm was for a table to provide relaxed informal dining for family get-togethers as an alternative to the more formal furniture in the client's dining room.
Coronation Table – A Bespoke Commission
This table was commissioned as part of the Summer House Restoration Project at Buckingham Palace and was presented to Queen Elizabeth II at the Coronation Festival in July 2013.
Aestas Jewellery Boxes
These jewellery boxes were originally inspired by a Primrose, with six petals, each with a carved handle that resemble a flower’s stamen. Once opened, they reveal a suede lined interior with six removable trays.
The Aestas jewellery boxes were first exhibited in the Summer House at the Buckingham Palace Coronation Festival in July 2013.
Bespoke Sideboard Using Traditional Cabinet Making Techniques
The design of this sideboard takes its inspiration from the architecture of a Japanese temple roof, as the client had lived in Japan for many years.
Keepsake Box – Handmade Wooden Boxes
This keepsake box features Japanese references in the lines of its design, married with British materials - Brown Oak with Bog Oak details.
