Mission statement

Jeremy Broun believes a piece of furniture should last at least as long as the tree from which it came, took to grow.

Clients for his furniture often perceive his unique designs as heirloom pieces. (http://www.jeremybroun.co.uk)

This website promotes Jeremy's vast range of video programmes and publications, some are award winning books, other are unique video-integrated ebooks. Most are predominantly reference material that does not quickly go out of date.

The waste on this planet is senseless and that includes the high quality packaging painstakingly selected by Jeremy to deliver books to you. It concerns him that is it is automacically disposed of, not least because the packaging like the hardback book printing is costly. 

As an incentive to re-use the sturdy packaging, if you have ordered a book and you live in the UK, please put a 2nd class postage stamp on the enveloppe and return it to the address on the sticker. You will earn a £5 discount on a future order of Jeremy's ebooks.

The Alan Peters ONLINE Furniture Award                                                                 2021   

An annual award celebrating the legacy of one of Britain’s most prominent furniture designer-makers of the late 20th century. It aims to encourage talent in the craft of furniture design and making. 
Any woodworker who is a resident citizen of The British Isles* over the age of 18 and who has a passion and talent for designing and making contemporary furniture is invited to submit up to 2 items of furniture made primarily of wood, that can include other complementary materials and that echo the philosophy of Alan Peters. Judging is based on the appropriate use of wood, the quality of workmanship, functionality and originality of design.

Both one-off designs and potential batch-produced designs are encouraged and the piece does not have to be large. Applicants should be familiar with the work of Alan Peters prior to applying and are encouraged to read this 64-page online video-integrated ebook by Jeremy Broun offered free here: 

Alan Peters OBE (1933 – 2009) was one of Britain’s most prominent furniture designer makers of the latter part of the 20th Century. He was apprenticed to Edward Barnsley and was a direct link to the English Arts & Crafts Movement. He was hugely influential internationally in his practice, teaching and publications.  Above all, his respect and understanding of how wood behaves and the value of hand skill, yet moving tradition forward, resulted in many timeless pieces.  He created affordable functional furniture which was made to last, making an art of his craft in some of his subtle innovations. 

 

 

History of the Award

 

The original award was called The Alan Peters Award For Excellence and was initiated by Jason Heap in 2010 and the prize was for three winners to have a free exhibition space alongside the professionals at this annual furniture exhibition in Cheltenham.
