I grew up in the Cumbrian coastal village of Rampside, close to the town of Barrow-in-Furness. After enjoying woodwork and winning a local competition in furniture design at school in Barrow, I wentto Salford University to study Analytical Chemistry in the mid nineties. I rekindled my interest in furniture making by studying the Handcrafted Furniture City and Guilds course at The City of Bristol College when I moved here in 2000.

After studying architecture and furniture design in London Jonathan, quite by chance, was asked to make some shop fittings for a rapidly expanding jewellery retail company. This in turn led to morecommissions and quite soon Jonathan Lear Furniture was founded. This was 16 years ago and today Jonathan runs his workshop in the heart of the Chew Valley, just outside of Bristol. We now make all types of free standing and built-in furniture, working mainly in hardwoods.
