Charlesworthy functional art combines highly innovative cutting-edge production techniques with outstanding quality and craftsmanship to produce bold, beautiful, bespoke furniture.

The ability to blend rich, warm woods with forged metals and high-tech materials means that Charlesworthy custom made furniture eloquently combines the required artistic form with real-world functionality.

Stylish and timeless

Every piece that leaves the factory makes a statement:  Stunning, yet simple… sophisticated, striking and highly distinctive, Charlesworthy creations all possess a timeless quality that will last for generations.

Completing a client’s vision

Working closely with architects, artists and interior designers on private commissions, boutique hotels or large-scale development projects, Charlesworthy are able to realise their clients’ design ideas and produce exquisitely crafted pieces of impeccable quality.

Charles Goldsworthy knows about form, having spent his early career riding winners for the Queen Mother, alongside such contemporaries as Richard Pitman, John Francome and Lester Piggott.


Retiring from the saddle in 1972, Charles embarked on a second career as a master craftsman, working with a wide range of materials including wood and hand-forged metal, eventually specialising in large projects for architectural practices.

He opened his own factory to ensure that the exacting standards of design and quality for which he had become renown, would continue.

Once joined by his daughter Charlotte, the Charlesworthy functional art brand was born.  

As the manufacturing team continues to grow, so does their international reputation for innovative design and impeccable build quality.
