Our FounderChris Booth, acting on a long held dream to create handmade furniture, founded Kithe in 2012. Over the 15 years of work experience in the building and construction industry, Chris noticed that he missed the meticulous craftsmanship and veneration that initially attracted him to carpentry. A distinct enthusiasm for working directly and creatively with people and a natural ability working with timber allowed Chris to finally live his dream with 2nd Chance Tables.
Our Team Our recycled timber furniture would cease to exist without the Kithe. We are small team of attentive and focused individuals, and we love what we do. We enjoy discovering and purchasing old discarded, dishevelled and rejected pieces of timber that we can bring back to life. We spend countless hours designing and producing contemporary tables and furniture from recycled timbers. We are obsessive about what our customers might like and because they strive for individualism and distinction we’re honoured to oblige their request. All our furniture is designed, created and finished with meticulous care. We hand make everything :- every table and every piece of furniture in the collection is the result of hours of work invested in our endless pursuit of perfection. We love the furniture we make and we’re overjoyed when we hear how much our customers love it too.
Our Process Rather than a mass production operation, we work one-on-one with our clients to design something specific to their needs and tastes. We also aim to educate our clients about different timbers and finishes that they may not know even exists, thus ensuring we create a piece they really want rather than something they just like.
