At the heart of Arttus is a love for working with wood and a passion for good design. Hand carving is unique and is one of the few traditional joinery methods that cannot be replaced by machine, it ensures the hand of the maker on the finished piece. We combine an in depth knowledge of classical and vernacular architecture with a flair for individual design using traditional joinery methods and skills to produce stunning rooms and unique pieces of furniture.

Whilst our roots and inspirations are with period architectural joinery, our design process is always led by the needs of each specific project and their surroundings, creating rooms and furnishings that are beautiful, functional, unique and ultimately enjoyed.
