Benches, stools, tables, desks – mixing old and new with great results.

They say;

WOODMANCOTE RETRO is a furniture design company based within the Stroud Valleys in Gloucestershire.

We have a passion for designing and creating beautiful, functional, simple and timeless furniture, that is accessible to all.

We produce tubular steel furniture that is unique and rooted in mid-century design. It’s simplicity stands out, while being versatile and durable enough for a range of interiors. The 10 principles of Dieter Rams pretty much sum up our ethos at Woodmancote Retro.

We are passionate about sourcing and salvaging beautiful local high-quality sustainable hardwoods and recycled plastics. We incorporate these into our furniture design, and by doing so reduce potential landfill and waste. This is why we started doing what we do – and have never looked back.

Our ethos is a commitment to supporting the local circular economy. We collaborate with like-minded suppliers and makers to produce high quality furniture that you will not find on the high street.
