Burghwood

“We take pride in crafting home furnishings that respect time-honored techniques and the environment.”

HISTORY

Burghwood specializes in handcrafted heirloom furniture. A professional carpenter for 30 years, founder Keith Loughrey began his custom furniture practice after recovering from a traumatic injury. With his extensive knowledge of woodworking and attention to detail, Keith crafts quality solid hardwood home furnishings and accessories employing traditional joinery techniques.

PROCESS

Burghwood’s furniture echoes the Craftsman style with a contemporary spin. Using exclusively rescued wood, including kiln samples and dormant lumber, Keith thoughtfully develops each of Burghwood’s refined designs. Working with clients to fulfill custom designs, Keith first develops a drawing or small scaled model. From there, he handpicks the wood based on grain, mineral deposits, and shade variations to bring distinctive character to each finished piece.

FUTURE

Keith continues to offer furniture for private homes and commercial projects, including restaurants and hotels. Looking to the future, Keith seeks an apprentice to share and pass along his expertise and skills, ultimately increasing the size and production capacity of his practice.
