DESIGNED WITH PASSION
Peter McManus is the designer behind the entire YARD range. Each salvaged beam recycled has its own narrative, a story to be told. Peter’s like a storyteller, every piece of furniture reveals another chapter within YARD’s chronicle. His carpentry background combined with his creative mind leaves no stone unturned when it comes to beautifully crafted, timeless timber pieces.
CRAFTED WITH CARE
Once the rough recycled timbers are de-nailed and machined, they then reveal their true character. From this point, the creative chapter begins.
Peter along with a small team of passionate woodworkers make our pieces right here on site in Preston.
FINISHED TO PERFECTION
Each piece is finished by hand with precision and attention to detail.
YARD uses environmentally friendly hard wax finish which brings each timber and it’s story to life.
