A family run business with over 45 years of experience in antiques, cabinet making and interiors; Harman’s is now in its 3rd generation and run by brothers Paul and Nicholas. To accommodate today’s trend for mixing contemporary and traditional designs Harman’s have diversified to offer a bespoke range of traditional handcrafted oak furniture and Harris Tweed and Leather sofas, chairs and footstools

Bespoke, tailor made Dining Tables, Furniture

Using traditional methods and specially selected materials of the highest quality the Oak Furniture collection from Harman’s offers an unrivalled selection of country and contemporary feel furniture.

Every item of furniture purchased from the collection is made to order by hand in the UK by craftsmen using traditional methods and techniques to achieve the most desirable and individual pieces of furniture. It is all available in standard sizes or if necessary can be tailored to your specific requirements. Each item is individually French polished by hand and is subjected to a number of aging and staining processes to bring out the full beauty of the wood. All of our finishing is flexible and any level of distressing and colour depth can be achieved. Masters of the traditional art of ‘adzed’ finishing, we are able to apply this to any table top to give the ultimate rustic effect.

Harman’s can also offer a colour matching service to ensure your new purchase compliments your existing furniture or interior decor. If you would like us to match a piece to an existing item of furniture, all you need do is provide our craftsmen with an appropriate sample and will be happy to carry this out for you.

Using the highest quality European oak from sustainable forests, each piece of timber is selected for its richness of grain, making every item produced unique. Carefully seasoned and kiln dried, the oak used will still retain a reasonable moisture content allowing some movement in the furniture to enhance its natural character.

The Dining Room is the social centre of any home with the dining table taking centre stage. Primative Refectory tables for us have evolved into a vast array of designs with early English influence, resulting in substantial dining tables which are a pleasure to use.

The designs available in this collection fit into many different setting, from inglenock cottages, fine country houses to modern classic rooms. This diversity is our forte, our entire range is made to the size of your choice and all are available with either glued joints, or the more rustic effect of dry joints which define the planks and pegs clearly. All can be made in either oak or cherry wood and to any colour and finish.

Harris Tweed And Leather Armchairs and Sofas

Using the finest wools, tweeds and leathers, each piece in the collection is unique in its own right. Irreplaceable and distinctive, we lovingly create real furniture to highlight the story of the origin of the component materials.  Vintage leathers are bold and characterful, reflecting the source of the hide. Clearly see the variety of textures, colours and lining that tell the story behind your stunning piece of furniture - a beautiful and fascinating picture of luxurious, comfort and style.

Simply find your favourite furniture design then experiment with the material option. You can then create a footstool and scatter cushions to match!
If you’re looking for somewhere to start, ‘Harris Tweed’ works wonderfully with our fast track collection.
