David Chappell started making individual pieces of furniture to order in 1982, motivated by the belief that there was a demand for truly individual furniture, thoughtfully designed and made to order.  We have been located at West Buckland since 1985 with both our Showroom and Workshops on the same site. We currently employ 10 people full time with a wealth of experience in design, manufacture, installation and customer care. A true family run firm, we are passionate about all we offer and place great emphasis on creating products built for the long term.


It has been our philosophy for many years to ensure that we have highly satisfied customers at the end of each project. We are confident that the products and services we provide are both of the highest quality and at a fair and reasonable price. As a result the vast majority of our new work comes through personal recommendations from friends and family.  We have thousands of happy customers throughout the U.K.  and can provide a huge number of testimonials  for all types of work we carry out.  


At David Chappell Design Ltd we specialise in providing a wide range of quality furniture and joinery solutions in addition to offering a high quality property refurbishment service.  We are a family run firm and work with a high level of integrity and attention to detail in all that we do.  Our experience and reputation within this industry ensures that your expectations will be surpassed.  Please take a look at our previous commissions and the services we offer on this site and feel free to get in touch once you are ready to discuss your forthcoming project.


We have a wide range of experience in producing high quality joinery products in both commercial and domestic settings.

Whether it is high quality joinery going into a new build property or conservation-style joinery for a listed building, we will interpret your requirements and produce solutions of the highest standard.

We offer joinery in all types of wood and with top quality ironmongery to suit your needs.  Working with architects and developers our joinery division manufactures and install joinery throughout the South of England.


By maintaining our manufacturing in this country we are both supporting local employment as well as avoiding unnecessary use of fossil fuels in the  movement  of furniture from Eastern Europe and China.  Integrity of materials is of great importance to us, we are committed to sourcing local timber where possible, in particular English oak, English ash and English cherry.  We have, upon request, used customers’ own timber from their land.  Through use of water based lacquers and primers in our finishing department we minimise the effects of harmful chemicals and pollutants.  We have built up strong links with local craftsmen in woodturning, basket weaving and leaded light making who all share the same levels of skill and commitment to high quality work.  Sourcing as many of our components as possible from the local area is fundamental to our approach to sustainable business.
