Returning to Ireland in January 2021 from Australia, David Carpendale established 'David Oliver Bespoke', a luxury handmade furniture design company.
Having run his own successful carpentry outfit in Australia for the previous eight years, David returned to his roots as a furniture maker and set up a workshop under the same roof as his father's renowned iron craft business, which has been operating for almost 50 years.
"Being back to where my love of woodworking started is very special, and sharing floorspace with my father, a true craftsman, makes it very personal for me".
David's experience in woodworking spans 15 years in the industry, and after graduating from the Letterfrack Furniture College in Connemara, he went on to work both nationally and internationally honing his craft, adding a national certification as a carpenter joiner, and working on an exciting portfolio of projects.
"My years in Australia have been some of the most influential in my time as a woodworker. The exposure to beautiful homes and their settings paired with the vision of award-winning architects and builders pushed me to start David Oliver Bespoke, a celebration of luxury."
All of our furniture is made lovingly at our workshop by hand, so we are careful with materials at every stage of the process. From precious metals to natural stone and hardwoods, all of our materials are sourced within Ireland.
Our waste and bi-products are recycled at a neighbouring facility and offcuts used for the development of our smaller pieces range launching later in the year.
"I am excited to see the workshop grow as the business grows. It's the backbone of everything we produce and to see it develop as our client relationships develop will be a proud moment."
David Oliver Bespoke Ltd does its best to ensure that products viewed on our website are as accurate in colour and size as possible. All of our products are handmade using natural materials and variations in colour can be a common occurrence especially with hardwoods. Some products may vary in colour and tone from those viewed on our website due to computer screen and image limitations. We hope you understand this.
