hugo egleston


Hugo Egleston established his workshop in 1980 after training at the London College of Furniture, and then working for three years in the workshop of Sandy Mackilligin at Puttenham, Surrey.

The main influences on his furniture are the work of English 18th Century Cabinet makers, which he thinks has never been surpassed in this country, and the Arts and Crafts makers, especially Edward Barnsley. He believes the study of nature is very useful for the designer, although he seldom uses natural forms directly.
