About Us

Jamie has always had a love for carpentry and could often be found playing with tools and a toy work bench from the age of three! Jamie is a maker at heart and loves nothing more than being creative and designing new products. Early in 2016 Jamie began a journey starting his own business primarily focusing on End Grain Chopping Boards. Starting with just a few items listed on his small Etsy Store; Jamie now has his own website with as many as one hundred boards available as well as made to order options. Skinner Designs has now expanded into high end furniture and more!

Bespoke Z-Chairs

Introducing our Mid Century Modern Z Chairs. Based on the famous, 1950’s Selig Z- Chair originally created by Poul Jensen, these chairs capture and revitalise the iconic, Danish design. Handmade in Sussex, these luxury pieces are constructed using the very best timber. They are finished with a durable, hardwearing oil that enhances the wood’s natural character.

Adjustable Plant Stands

During the infamous Lockdown of 2020, my fiancé and I turned to all things plants at a time when all you could do was to visit your local garden centre! To say we became quite obsessed is a slight understatement. With our indoor jungle rapidly growing, we became aware of the ongoing problem of plants outgrowing pots and therefore, their stands. Not only was it becoming quite expensive to constantly be buying new plant accessories, but also we found it extremely wasteful. And so... The Adjustable Plant Stand was born! 

Character Clocks

Our clocks are made from the most gorgeous pieces of hand picked  'character' wood, full of unique grain, rays, pip and ripple. Paired with a silent and smooth motion clock mechanism and a choice of hands.
