With a back­ground in in­dus­trial de­sign and an ap­pren­tice­ship in fur­ni­ture mak­ing un­der­way, Jeremy Lee set up his busi­ness in a garage in early 2015, mov­ing it to the By­ron Bay hin­ter­land when he and his fam­ily moved there in 2016.

“The com­mu­nity here is full of pas­sion­ate cre­ative peo­ple,” he says. “Plus I live four min­utes from work and five min­utes from the beach, which re­ally helps the work-life bal­ance.”

Jeremy works with tim­ber and says, “The more I work with wood, the more I re­alise there is still so much to learn. Ev­ery species is dif­fer­ent and ev­ery tree is unique.” He de­signs and makes each prod­uct, fo­cus­ing on lim­it­ing waste, re-us­ing and re­cy­cling, and also works on com­mis­sions for cus­tom work.

“A client will get in touch with a de­sign or idea, we’ll brain­storm and I’ll come back with draw­ings or ren­ders – then, six to eight weeks later, a new piece is cre­ated,” says Jeremy. “I try to be as flex­i­ble as pos­si­ble with cus­tomis­ing my pieces and sup­port­ing my clients’ needs. I re­ally love mak­ing and cre­at­ing in the work­shop – ev­ery piece I make is a piece I would want to have in my own home.” Find Jeremy at jdlee­fur­ni­ture.com.
