Edinburgh furniture maker Jonathan Lassen has been designing and making unique furniture for private and commercial clients since 1981.

Jonathan originally studied engineering and photography at Edinburgh Napier, but gravitated towards working with wood, a medium within which he could combine his technical, artistic and creative talents.

After training in traditional carpentry and joinery, Jonathan spent a number of years working on restoration projects in Languedoc and Pennsylvania before setting up in business in 1981.




Jonathan takes his inspiration from Scottish and American arts and crafts, Japanese joinery and contemporary design, woven together with ideas that spring from the patterns and shapes that occur during the making process.

Furniture that expresses a clean contemporary sense of design that sits comfortably in period settings, whilst contributing a handmade presence into more contemporary interiors, through the use of fine timbers, traditional quality and individual design solutions.
