What we make

We make our own designs, batch made or bespoke to commission, they are all hand made by us in our workshops in Argyll, Scotland.

Design in Harmony is a collaboration between two skilled furniture makers – Sarah Selman, designer and upholsterer and Gareth Wilson,  wood-worker.  You do not need to be a musician to appreciate the skill and craftsmanship in the pieces we make.

The Wood

Our ethos is quality and sustainability, Using temperate hardwoods we select the timber and processes most suitable for the pieces we make. American Black Walnut, Cherry and Beech are popular choices, finished to a satin sheen from traditional shellac based finishes and wax polish. We know that instruments have soul. So do our pieces.

The Fabric

The juxtaposition of beautiful fabric and finely finished wood is something exciting.Whether sumptuous velvet or a traditional tweed in an eye-catching colour, the fabrics have been carefully chosen to create a visual entity designed compliment your instrument.
