Welcome to Eco wood design: I’m Stephen Ziguras and I design and make furniture, homewares and wooden objects to order. In fact, I make pretty much anything out of wood and I’ve been both designing and crafting premium quality furniture for more than a decade. I specialise in making bespoke furniture – custom made timber furniture from sustainably sourced new and recycled timber.
I started Eco wood design while my partner and I were both living in Copenhagen, Denmark in 2010. My designs are influenced by the Arts and Craft Movement, as well as Danish design and Japanese techniques, and I look to recycled and sustainably sourced timber in order to help the environment in any way that I can. I use both traditional and modern woodwork techniques best suited to the particular piece I am making to guarantee the finest workmanship and quality
Today, my furniture making business is now based in Melbourne. This is where I design and build all my numerous distinct and unique pieces of made to order furniture. They are all meticulously handcrafted so you know that your piece is truly one of a kind, and by using only the finest materials, I can ensure that each and every furnishing I create is made to last a lifetime. I take pride in my work, with every little intricate detail, so I can guarantee customer satisfaction every time.
Making custom made timber furniture is more challenging, more time consuming and requires true passion and expertise. In contrast to the generic copies of furniture available today, custom made furniture requires creativity, skill and craftsmanship. While it can be more expensive than buying a mass-produced item off the shelf, bespoke furniture involves a partnership between maker and owner that allows the piece to be tailored to the client’s needs, requirements, and tastes – expressing the personality of the person it is made for. This is precisely why I set up Eco wood design: to work with clients to make truly unique, individual furniture like no other.
