Gavin Coyle Studio is a workshop based in Walthamstow, East London. We are a small team of skilled cabinetmakers all dedicated in preserving the skills of traditional craftsmanship in new and innovative ways.
We make timeless products which have a lasting beauty and are designed to be lived with, used, and enjoyed.
From small individual items for sale, to bespoke commissions, we aspire to create products which make strong emotional connections, expressed through unpretentious forms and providing a quiet, enduring presence in the home.
Much of our work is bespoke commissions for manufacturers, retailers, architects and private individuals. From early discussions, briefing and sketches, defining materials and appropriate craft, to design, make and installation, we have a wholly collaborative and holistic approach to each project.
Each commission is truly bespoke, and is based on a collaborative approach, clear communication and progressive thinking.

Our ethos is very much less is more, with products designed to be enduring in both their design and choice of materials. We aim to design products which are the antithesis of throwaway, using materials which are beautiful and long-lasting.
Careful design not only means less waste in production, but also that any waste can be reused or recycled. Our sawdust goes to the local paint recycling centre (frponline.org.uk) and timber offcuts to the Lea Valley boating community for firewood. This winter we are installing a wood burner in the workshop, fuelled entirely by our own wood waste.
