About the Maker

Named the 2018 Chippendale Society Prize Winner, Vanessa exercises her passion for furniture building in Edinburgh, Scotland. After moving to Scotland from Seattle, USA to study the art of furniture making, the designer and builder fell in love with the people and country of Scotland and made it her permanent home. 

With a focus on native timber species and solid wood pieces, Vanessa's signature style includes sweeping lines and intricate joinery. She also builds kitchens, cabinetry, and is happy to talk about your project.
