About Us

Real wood furniture made by real people for real life. 

If you’re after some rustic, chunky, solid wood furniture, then you have come to the right place!

Our solid wood furniture and shelves are carefully designed in our studio and created by our skilled craftsman in our workshop in the glorious North East of England, UK. 

Come and visit our showroom and see for yourself!

Funky Chunky Furniture started in South Shields, North East England, in early 2013 with a simple aim - to create top quality solid wood furniture for everyone to enjoy. From humble beginnings, operating part time from a garage, we moved to a small workshop making furniture for customers in the UK and Europe. But the small workshop became just too small, and due to our rapid growth we've moved into a much larger workshop just up the River Tyne in Jarrow. From here, we're busy designing and making an ever expanding range of solid wood furniture, and creating more jobs in the process. 

The future is very exciting, and we've some big plans just around the corner. So, watch this space. We've loads more designs up our sleeves, and tools in our belts. All ready to create more rustic furniture for your homes. 

What We Do

Funky Chunky Furniture At Work

As the name suggests we do some very chunky, sometimes funky, furniture. All made by our own joiners in our own workshop. 

Created from solid oak and pine, our pieces are designed and naturally made to last. Chunky solid wood furniture that'll withstand day-to-day life in your home. 

Whether you’d like some rustic living room furniture or chunky bedroom furniture we are sure to have something to suit your needs. Our current product range includes coffee tables, TV units, dining tables, benches, bed frames, chests of drawers, wine racks, floating shelves and mantels, with more items and lines to be added in the not too distant future.

We believe that natural solid wood furniture can help you create a home as unique as your family. So all our furniture and shelves come with choices. 
-Choose from different coloured wax finishes to create a piece that fits your style
-Choose the length and thickness of your floating shelves
-Choose the length and width of key furniture pieces like tables, benches and beds

And if that's not enough choices, speak to our Bespoke Design Team who will help to create your own perfect piece.

Our Timber

The main thing needed to create chunky furniture is chunky wood. The chunky timber we choose is full of beautiful rustic character and features that make each piece truly one of a kind, so you can be sure that no one else will have anything identical to your own.

To make our furniture we use solid pine or solid oak. The pine is used to make the majority of our products, including coffee tables, dining tables and bed frames and the oak is used only to make our oak shelving and mantels. Check the item description of each product if you aren’t sure.

Each timber beam is chosen and cut to size by our expert craftsman before they use it to create our furniture and shelves - leaving in those unique features of the wood - twists, shames, knots and saw mill marks.

Things We're Proud Of

We use an independent review collection service, called Feefo, which allows our customers to leave service and product reviews. In February 2019 we were awarded Feefo’s most prestigious accolade, the Gold Trusted Service Award for the second year running (following on from being awarded their previous highest accolade in 2016, the Gold Trusted Merchant, and the Gold Trusted Service Award in 2017).

To win this award companies needed to have collected at least 50 reviews in 2018 and achieved a service rating of at least 4.5. We collected 559 reviews with a service rating of 4.9, thanks to our wonderful customers!

Not only that, but in our short time we have also had products featured on national TV - Peter Andre's 60 Minute Makeover - and in magazines - Grazia and Your Home.
