Roland Smith Furniture | Storefront |
Roland hand-planing wood


Even the smallest items deserve and receive the greatest attention to detail. All items are handmade in Derbyshire using sustainable hardwoods.

Since 2018 Roland Smith has been working out of his workshop located in the historic stone mills of Pleasley Vale. He divides his time fairly evenly between usually having at least one large furniture project on the go at the same time as working on the design and construction of a range of smaller wooden items such as coasters, lamps and knife blocks.

Everything in Roland’s storefront is hand made by him. He also does the majority of the designing, while enthusiastically welcoming new ideas from friends, family and customers. Or anyone else.

We are confident you will find something here that you or your loved ones will treasure for many years to come.

Design Philosophy

The same attention to detail always applies, whether it be for a complicated commission taking several months, or a coaster taking less than an hour.

Roland’s individual approach allows a far greater attention to quality of construction and the selection of materials than is possible in a much larger workshop or factory. In particular, no piece of wood is ever used without first being inspected and carefully considered for quality, appearance and suitability for the component in question.

All products are designed using initial sketches, test pieces, then prototypes before the final pieces are made in top quality hardwoods. For more complex items there may also be an additional CAD phase following the initial sketching.
