Arcadian furniture manufactures freestanding and fitted furniture to commission and provides a comprehensive furniture restoration service.

The business was established by Andy Pope in September 2000. Andy attended the City & Guilds Furniture Studies course at City of Bristol College in 1995. After that, he worked for several Bristol based furniture manufacturers/restorers, building on his skills, knowledge and experience, until he began to work for himself as Arcadian Furniture.

From a rural workshop on the outskirts of Bristol Andy is able to service a wide area around Bristol and Bath, as well as projects further-a-field.

In addition to commissioned pieces Andy produces high quality pieces of his own, which combine traditional craftsmanship with contemporary design, techniques and machinery. He chooses to work in native hardwoods, where figure in the grain works well in juxtaposition with the clean lines of his designs.

Past commissions have included: tables, chairs cupboards, bookshelves, wardrobes, study areas, display cases, and bathroom furniture, whilst the restoration service tackles anything from re-glueing joints and repairing damaged veneers, to French polishing, replacing desk leather and insurance work.
