About Us

 

The seed for Shelves & Things was sown when Isa and Gavin moved their young family to Gloucestershire some eighteen years ago. Together in their new home they went about turning the limited space they had into useful storage. On seeing the results of their labours, friends and neighbours asked them to create homes for their belongings too. Realising that there was a need for elegantly designed and beautifully built storage and shelving, Isa and Gavin went into business together and started Shelves & Things.

Isa comes from a design background and looks at everything from an aesthetic point of view. She declares herself a naturally untidy person who strives for the calm and serenity of a clutter free home and workspace. 

 

Gavin is an experienced maker, working in both wood and metal. He learned his craft in a number of  London firms producing high end work for prestigeous clients. For as long as he can remember Gavin has been making things, he just can't help himself. He started early, assisting his mother in her stained glass workshop on various personal projects such as a full sized tinsel fountain aged nine, and a wooden cross bow that fired pencils, aged eleven. No piece of wood could escape the attentions of Gavin's much loved pen knife.
