Fergal O’Leary designs and manufactures elegant and practical furniture with an understated modern aesthetic, and a focus on high quality finish. He produces a wide range of work, from functional domestic objects to high end bespoke pieces.
For O’Leary, furniture is for life and for living. He draws inspiration from Scandinavian design, specifically interested in the clear connection between function and form, and the harmonious integration of ergonomics and use value in a piece of furniture. O’Leary works with a variety of timbers including oak, ash and walnut, as well as complementary materials like opaque glass. His current collection includes the jacktable, made in walnut and ash, finished with oil and gloss lacquer, and the Square Roots cabinet made of solid cherry and cream lacquer.
O’Leary founded Horizon Furniture in 2008. He lives and works in Cork.
