THE FOUNDER

 

DUNCAN WHITE

From the time that Duncan was a young boy he has loved building and making things. After reading Engineering at Oxford University he went on to work for Shell. Here he did lots of building – from gas plants in Qatar to oil refineries in Nigeria.

After following a corporate career, Duncan decided to leave Shell and devote his time to somewhat smaller projects. Training under Marc Fish, he learnt the age-old skills of fine furniture making, and from there Avocet Furniture was born.

Duncan spends much of his time now working with clients to create their perfect piece. From dressing rooms to bespoke dining tables, the range that Avocet Furniture can create is as far as one’s imagination can take it.
