The Robinson-Gay family have become synonymous with traditional handmade furniture since Stephen Robinson-Gay set up his workshop in Northumberland 30 years ago. Now very much a family business, Stephen concentrates on design and the restoration of antique furniture while Jason heads their team of cabinet makers in the production workshops at Wallington & Kirkharle.
The furniture range is extensive, from faithful copies of antique originals to contemporary kitchens and offices. Most of our work is commissioned but examples are for sale from the gallery in Hexham or via the website.
Furniture made to our own design generally uses the natural grain of selected timbers with pronounced jointing detail wherever appropriate. Robinson Gay furniture is often made from a variety of English or European hardwoods mixed in the same piece, including, most commonly, oak, ash, elm, cherry and walnut. We also often use burr oak or elm as a banding with inlayed lines. These features mark the work as being distinctly that of Robinson-Gay.
These progressive designs will be traditionally constructed by hand by our highly skilled team. The pieces will have a unique quality and patina that (like antique furniture) will improve with time, eventually becoming heirlooms of the future.
