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.
