John Galvin

Award winning furniture artist John Galvin designs innovative creations that encompass contemporary bespoke design with quality craftsmanship.

This marriage is of the up most importance and is clearly evident in his production of beautiful hand made bespoke pieces that will stand the test of time.

John tries to make his clients appreciate what it is like to live with a handcrafted object in which there is a union between the maker object and owner.

John is a radical furniture maker who has been involved with progressive design-led exhibitions such as Wallpaper’s Hand Made exhibition, where he combines art with furniture to create exceptional pieces. Originating from Ireland, John is currently based in Glasgow’s West End and gets his inspiration from natural forms, his love of art and architectural design. With 10 years experience in furniture making John has created striking works of art such as his Manolo Lounger.

Those looking for an individual piece of furniture which has been created with a sense of movement and John’s injection of creative flair should take a further look at his work.

"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 62 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.
