Peter Hall & Son are furniture makers, designers, wood turners and antique restorers. Established in 1972 by Peter Hall, we have grown into a thriving furniture making company and interior design studio, situated in Cumbria, within the beautiful English Lake District. We are passionate about furniture making and take pride in the exceptional quality of both our design and hand-made manufacturing. We believe that our bespoke furniture will be a lasting legacy and take great pleasure in designing beautiful pieces of furniture, sourcing a wood that tells a story and hand-crafting the finest pieces of furniture that will endure the test of time and last for generations.

With over 40 years’ experience in producing quality furniture from our Cumbrian workshop we are proud of our tradition and heritage. We stay focused on current design trends, listen to our client’s requirements, understand their influences and design bespoke furniture to fit their needs, whether contemporary styling, or traditional furniture. We undertake commissions from a wide range of clients from across the UK. Sometimes they have a specific vision of their furniture in mind and sometimes they require custom-made furniture for a specific space in their home. Either way, we will create beautiful furniture, handmade to the highest quality by our skilled craftsmen.

We work closely with our clients and respect and appreciate the trust placed in us when asked to create a piece of bespoke furniture for their home. We want choosing Peter Hall & Son to be a memorable and happy experience. We are proud to remain a family run furniture making company and this means we look to develop long-lasting relationships with our clients and offer impeccable customer service. Our website displays just a selection of our work, but if you are interested in our bespoke furniture making then contact one of our team, or visit our workshop and showroom in Staveley, Cumbria.

Peter Hall & Son are highly experienced in the restoration and conservation of antique furniture. Since 1979 we have worked on many thousands of pieces from Cumbria and further afield, ranging from internationally important panelled rooms to the humblest of chairs. We have been retained by The National Trust and other nationally recognised heritage organisations, as well as private individuals, to care for their most precious pieces of furniture.

For a number of years, Peter Hall & Son have also helped with the conservation, restoration and enhancement of some of Cumbria’s beautiful local churches. This restoration work included a large refurbishment project at St Mary’s Church, Windermere, which required a new lectern, nave altar and altar rail, as well as a new altar and stalls for Beetham Church and the Lady Chapel. We are proud to play an active role preserving the heritage of our local community and Jeremy Hall sits on the Diocesan Advisory committee, providing advice on architecture, fittings and furniture in places of worship.

Our furniture restoration services focus on two areas of specialism:

Conservation has been described as actions aimed at the safeguarding of cultural property for the future. A conservator is concerned with stabilizing, maintaining and preserving the integrity of the furniture, without adversely altering its appearance.

Restoration often involves aspects of conservation and visa-versa; however restoration includes making changes to the piece of furniture, perhaps to return the object to its former appearance. This can also include making changes to ensure the furniture can perform its original function, i.e. re-gluing the loose joints in a chair to make it more stable.

Our Head of Restoration has worked for Peter Hall & Son for 26 years, has an MA in Preventative Conservation and is an accredited member of the Institute of Conservation (ICON).

Our passion for furniture means we understand that the value of furniture is not purely monetary. If you have a piece that you would like restoring, whether antique or simply of personal importance, then bring it to our workshop in Staveley, Cumbria and we will examine it and provide an estimate for the restoration work whilst you wait.

If the furniture is too large to easily transport, fixed in situ, or if there are several items you require estimated, please contact us and we will make another arrangement that will suit you. Read Less

Peter Hall & Son’s furniture designs often take inspiration from the Arts and Crafts Movement; designs are not over-embellished and each piece of furniture relies on the beauty of the wood. Often perceived as a traditional style of furniture design, the Arts and Crafts Movement which rose to prominence in the late 1800s, has seen a recent resurgence, due to the simplicity of design and clever twists in the use of materials. Jeremy Hall uses his practical knowledge of furniture-making and strong understanding of materials to interpret the Arts and Crafts Movement with a contemporary slant. Peter Hall & Son will never forget its roots, and this is evident in the traditional manufacturing methods used in our workshops, but understands the need to adopt a more contemporary style. This is achieved through the choice of unusual woods or veneers, and the incorporation of glass and locally sourced Lakeland slate. The skill of the furniture maker is still paramount, highlighted by finely hand-cut drawer dovetails, serpentine fronts, curved rails, splayed legs and each piece finished with a hand carved logo.
