About Us

At Brandler-London, we design and build bespoke, fitted furniture specialising in the use of barn wood whilst also providing full service joinery for projects in a variety of materials and finishes.

Whether it’s a wardrobe, a kitchen, an indoor treehouse, a flat conversion or an entire block redevelopment, our ethos remains the same: to design and build visually stunning projects, using raw materials, creating beautiful, highly textured centrepieces and captivating living spaces.

Each completed project is discreetly etched with the Brandler-London logo along with a unique reference number. This identifies each individual piece with a description of its history, disclosing the variety of wood used, where it was sourced, its age, and the date of repurpose, giving each piece a clear provenance.

A Discovery Through the Doors of Seville

Take a walk down the streets of Seville and you’ll be struck by buildings untouched for centuries as well as dozens of handmade timber doors. Each one uniquely crafted and waiting to tell a story. Many of these doors with geometric patterns, as an homage to the cities Arabic origins.  Beautifully eroding as a measure of time.

With no real pavements, the doors of Seville are very important to the people. They act as the only boundary between the street life and the private courtyards.

Architecture of Seville

The current architecture of Seville that you see stems from the African-Islamic population. A community that once inhabited the majority of the city before being conquered. Since then the designs have always had attributes to its Moorish origins. With a lot of buildings incorporating geometry and craftsmanship into their style. The most notable example of this evolution is the Seville Cathedral, which was built on an ancient mosque site and converted the existing minaret to a bell tower.

A Measure of Wealth

The houses and courtyards would have once belonged to larger families. Their entrances would have been a depiction of the family’s wealth. The bigger and grander your door, the more affluent your family was considered to be. Residents would have also competed to own the most decorative and ornate doorknobs, often in brass

Being a resident in Seville, you would have been competing with neighbors to own the most decorative and ornate doorknobs. Often in brass and shaped into hands or animals.

Bespoke Door for Siouxsie Dickens

At Brandler, we too see how a door can be more than just a door. It can become the threshold into someone’s personality. That is why we went through numerous discussion and drawings when constructing Siouxsie Dicken’s Door. Needless to say, we were very proud of the final design and Siouxsie was very happy with her new door.

Siouxsie’s bespoke timber door depicts art deco and gothic influences and was made to appear as two doors. However, they are attached to function as one huge door, imposing a sense of grandness to any guests. The door uses 150-year-old raw-wood and was painted in an off-black with gold accents. It effortlessly fits into the flat’s modern and contemporary styling.

A Love of Nature - Biophilic Design

A love of nature is ingrained in us, refined through experience, culture, and the product of human evolution. But how often do we find ourselves in a truly natural environment?

There is an undeniable desire to immerse ourselves in natural landscapes. Though often only in our subconscious it leads many on long walks and escapes to the countryside retreats. The biophilia hypothesis  suggests that humans possess an innate tendency to seek connections with with nature and other forms of life.

But what if you could recapture that connection in your own home using raw and organic materials. Our materials palette with barn wood at its core creates cabinetry and furniture that offer a connection to nature, and quality of material that cannot be found elsewhere. The texture and grain of weathered barn wood mimics the wild unlike any other type of wood. Moss, bark and other organic surfaces such as Organoids stunning scented sheet material pressed with lavender, meadow flower and coffee (to name but a few) round off our material palette.

The World Health Organisation expects stress related illness to be the largest contributor toward disease by 2020.  With diminished opportunity to connect with nature and universal technological acceptance (Smart Phones, Tablets etc) means we have less opportunity to recuperate our mental and physical energy. At Brandler London we strive to keep this core connection to nature in our products, helping improve the health and well being of our clients.

Biophilic design is a sustainable design strategy, seen as a necessary complement to green architecture, which decreases the environmental impact of the built world. Our products and philosophy are both geared towards minimising our contribution towards this negative impact, helping to relief pressure on nature and importantly ourselves.
