Hugh Parsons is an architecturally-trained designer with a passion for innovation, beauty and sustainability. His work combines a raw elemental aesthetic with exquisite craftsmanship.
As a trainee architect, Hugh developed expertise in the use of CAD, model making and 3D renders. However his previous hands-on training in wooden boat-building inspired him to return to the workshop.
Hugh went on to develop his skills as a cabinetmaker working to commission and freelancing under the tuition of accomplished craftsmen.
Working directly with wood and other materials has allowed Hugh to combine a cutting edge design sensibility with an authentic sense of place and presence.
As well as creating his own Workshop range, Hugh has produced a number of bespoke commissions for individual clients including local interior design firms and retailers and globally recognised brands such as Edinburgh Castle and HBSC. He also regularly exhibits his work throughout Scotland.
