Jonathan Lear Applied Art
After studying Architecture in London, Jonathan returned to his home town of Bristol to set up a furniture business, having been greatly inspired by a furniture project in his final year of college. Over the last twenty years Jonathan Lear Furniture has successfully completed a wide range of both traditional and contemporary commissions, making bespoke hardwood furniture to exacting standards, using skilled techniques and quality materials and fittings.

Selected Commissions/collections:
A commission usually begins with a visit to the client’s home to discuss their requirements and initiate ideas, using wood samples and a portfolio of our past commissions. Initial ideas sketches are then generated and developed into a final proposal through further analysis and discussion. CAD and 3-D drawings help to show the client a clear image of the furniture that they are commissioning before making begins. The design process is not rushed, as we believe that the combination of simple aesthetics and attention to detail and proportions are paramount to the success of the look and function of our furniture. We encourage our clients, if possible, to visit the workshop during the making process to see the different stages of production and the exciting progress of realisation from the raw material to the finished piece. The commissioning of a bespoke piece of furniture should be a relaxed, creative and enjoyable experience for both the client and the maker. Commissions welcomed.
Artist's Statement:
Jonathan Lear Furniture strives to make beautiful timeless furniture, both free-standing and built-in, which will give many years of service whilst still looking good and functioning as it should. We achieve this by never cutting corners to increase our profits and taking responsibility for the quality of every piece that leaves our workshop. We produce furniture that we would want to own.
