One of A Kind sets out to produce high quality, bespoke pieces of furniture and joinery to suit the customers’ needs and requirements, whether it be replacing a window or creating an item of furniture.
We enjoy working with the customer to advise and guide, designing to their particular needs. We have been established at Mawnan Smith since Spring 2015.
"Really appreciate what you and Ruth have done. The door is magnificent and, with the window, they are spectacular."
Peter was formerly a traditional shipwright. He started designing and creating pieces of furniture in 2009 and then made the transition from shipwright to furniture and joinery through studying Furniture Studies at Camborne College and working at a local joinery company. Peter established his own business in the spring of 2015 at the Old Smithy workshops in Mawnan Smith. Word of mouth and returning customers has enabled his business to grow, along with the support of his wife Ruth, and in 2017 Peter and Ruth decided to go into partnership.
Ruth has always been interest in designing and making - creating her own unique textiles pieces for many years. Pursuing her love of textiles and printing/designing Ruth took a degree in Textiles Art and design, graduating in 2014. She helps design and make pieces for the business, alongside Peter, as well as working on her own design projects.
