What We Do
Real wood furniture made by real people for real life.
Keeping it real. That’s what we do. Real roll-your-sleeves-up hard work with a true craftsman’s eye for the small stuff. Those little details which make all the difference. Our real wooden furniture makes a perfect impression. Every single piece is handmade-to-order, in our workshop and designed to last a lifetime.
If you’re after some rustic, chunky, solid wood furniture, wooden floating shelves, solid wood shelves with cast iron brackets, or beautiful home accessories then you have come to the right place!
As the name suggests we do chunky, sometimes funky, furniture and shelves. Designed in our studio and all made by our skilled craftsmen in our own workshop in the North East of England.
If you'd like to see behind the scenes, take a look at our Workshop on our blog.
Created from solid oak and pine, our furniture and shelves 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 every month.
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

The main thing needed to create chunky wooden 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.
Outstanding Customer Service, as Rated by You
We use an independent review collection service, called Feefo, which allows our customers to leave service and product reviews. Our current review is 4.9 out of 5.
In February 2020 we were awarded Feefo’s most prestigious accolade, the Platinum Trusted Service Award.
It's an award that is given to businesses who've achieved Gold standard customer service for three years in a row. So, a massive thank you to all our customers who take the time to review our service and our products.
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.
Funky Chunky Furniture started in South Shields, North East England, in early 2013 with a simple aim - to create top quality solid wood furniture and wooden shelves 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.
Other than supplying direct customers with our chunky wooden furniture we have also worked with plenty of stores, designers and business owners to meet their own work needs.
This involves the likes of large department stores, small shops and mostly local and national stove and fireplace fitters, who constantly return for our solid oak shelving, mantels and rustic floating shelves.
