About Us

WE DESIGN BEAUTIFUL FURNITURE AND CRAFT PRODUCTS IN LIMITED VOLUMES FROM THE FINEST MATERIALS

John G Williams Fine Furniture is an innovative design company based in Johannesburg South Africa.  

We design and produce furniture with an artisanal ethos.  Each piece is individually crafted and finished with great care.  

The design sensibility draws on modern danish design - we find that wherever we simplify a design we end up with more striking and beautiful forms.

We use the most beautiful hardwood timbers, and treat these natural resources with respect.

Our first ambition is to build beautiful comfortable furniture, despite the fact that this sometimes presents an extreme challenge in its construction.

TESTIMONIAL

" JOHN PRODUCES UNIQUE PIECES THAT ARE UNLIKE ANY OTHER PRODUCTS.  HE IS DEVELOPING A DESIGN LANGUAGE, AND FURNITURE PIECES THAT ARE DISTINCTIVE"

DAVID KRYNAUW

sustainability - the ambition

The ambition is to make beautiful furniture that is incredibly comfortable, and that stands the test of time both in terms of its construction quality, and due to an enduring strong aesthetic. 

 

This enduring quality pushes back against ever shortening product life cycles.  And validates the use of beautiful solid hardwood timber.

If we can enhance our environment with truly enduring design we are making an important contribution towards sustainability.
