Dunleavy Bespoke

Tim and Seán Dunelavy specialise in the design and manufacture of contemporary handcrafted furniture. The Dunleavys aim to create timeless, elegant and practical pieces, driven by an appreciation of high quality materials and clean lines. Working to commission, they consult closely with clients in order to create personalised pieces with a special narrative value.

Combining traditional cabinet making techniques with modern processes, the Dunleavys work with native and imported hardwoods, and exotic and decorative veneers. Their current collection features the Esker and Drift tallboys, made in bleached oak finished with white oil. The frame and drawer fronts feature an organic, free-flowing hand-carved ridge detail that meanders its way around the piece.

Tim and Seán Dunelavy studied Furniture Design and Manufacture at Letterfrack College, Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology, graduating in 2005. They formed Dunleavy Bespoke in 2009, and are now based at their workshop and design studio in Co. Kildare.
