Andrew Hauge

I began Andrew Hauge furniture in August 2000 and since then I have been involved in designing and building a diverse range of free standing contemporary furniture mainly for private clients, but also for shops and galleries. I am a member of the Sussex Guild of crafts people.

I have an English and Danish-American background and my work is coloured by this heritage. I am influenced by European and in particular, Scandinavian Modernism, the Shakers and the English Arts and Crafts movement. I aim to translate the values of these movements into a contemporary style. I focus on strong uncluttered lines to produce functional, elegant and durable pieces that will sit well with both new and old furniture.

Timber is a miraculous and renewable resource. I aim to respect this and the eco-systems that our forests support by building quality, long lasting products from wood harvested from sustainable, managed woods. This often means Forest Stewardship Certified sources. For the same reason I use water based glues and natural oil or beeswax finishes.

I have a developing range of standard products to sell through select contemporary furniture retailers.  Although I enjoy designing and building bespoke one off items for individual clients, selling standard items through quality furniture retailers gives me another outlet to build interesting furniture.

"So long, and thanks for all the fish"

After very many years of craft&design we've decided that we'd like to retire and so in 7 days we will close the craft&design website, including craft&design Online and the craft&design Selected Makers and Craft and Design Month websites. We've had a brilliant 35 years and would like to thank all our readers, advertisers, writers, contributors and website visitors for their support throughout that time. Our very best wishes to you all for the future - Angie and Paul.
