Birbeck's Woodwork

James Birbeck is an Edinburgh-based woodworker, designing and manufacturing cabinetry, free-standing furniture and homewares, from his Leith workshop.

With a focus on ‘Unique designs , made simple’ as the brand’s ethos, each piece is elegantly minimal, thoughtfully designed and handmade with great attention to detail.

Longevity and craftsmanship are prioritised through the selection of only the best quality materials available.

Incorporating both modern production methods and traditional joinery skills, James continuously strives to reduce waste, ensuring the production has minimal impact on the environment.

The desire for sustainability and reduction in waste materials has led James to develop the Remnants Collection. Creating beautiful homewares from materials that would typically be discarded as off-cuts.
