Andrea Stemmer | Furniture


If you are looking for something unique and would like your ideas to influence the design process, then you may be interested in commissioning your own furniture. There are different reasons for commissioning; from a site-specific piece that reflects the spirit of its surroundings to something exceptional for a special person or occasion.

I can offer almost 30 years of experience in design and fine furniture making with projects ranging from individual one off pieces to complete interiors for homes, hotels and offices. Over the years I have established a network of trusted relationships with high quality craftspeople throughout the UK who I love working with.

“Andrea is an alchemist, who takes half-formed ideas at the start of the commission and uses them to create streamlined shapes that effortlessly respond to their function and environment. She created an easy dialogue around the Arrowhead table, exploring different ideas and welcoming my input. She was not afraid to push the boundaries to achieve a design that is completely unique.”
