The royal and ancient art of classical handcrafted furniture by a master wood craftsman is, in fact, alive and well, right here in Perth. Rupert Eachells is a rare talent in today’s world of mass production and cheap imitations. He has been schooled in the ancient art of the traditional menisier (the French guild of woodcraft and joinery, dating back to the 16th century). He has been trained by the finest European craftsmen.
He is dedicated to his art form in wood. He designs and makes fine furniture, essentially in the classical model, but also in contemporary styles. His work is customised to suit each client’s individual needs and taste, thus making the product exclusively unique and one that will improve in value over time.
Rupert offers clients the opportunity to enhance their dream homes with individuality designed and handcrafted furniture, made from genuine Australian wood to suit a particular room decor or interior design. Alternatively, clients can chose to commission specific one-off items, e.g. a bedroom suite, dining tables and chairs, hall mirrors, fire surrounds, occasional tables – the list is extensive.
Rupert has also created designs for religious institutions (alters and pulpits); designs to comply with corporate themes including logos and family insignias/coat-of-arms. His special gift is integrating Australian bush motifs and floral themes into his creations. His works have been displayed in a number of Furniture Expos and Royal Shows.
