Bespoke Furniture Makers
Nestled in the protected bogs of Kildare, the Coolree Design studio and workshop is surrounded by breath-taking wildlife. Adjacent to the peaceful Ballynafagh Lake and Bog of Allen, the natural tones and textures of its serene environment are reflected in the refined styles and clean lines across Coolree Design’s expansive collection of high-end furnishings and accessories for the home.
Established in 2018 by woodworker and furniture designer Warren Hayes, each hand-crafted piece adheres to an ethically-minded ethos rooted in using only sustainably-sourced solid timber to bring these beautiful and functional designs to life. Handmade in Ireland, no two items are the same as Coolree Design’s products embrace the stunning individual markings of the wood’s grain. Indebted to signature Mid-Century Scandinavian sensibilities, Coolree Design effortlessly combines traditional techniques with a contemporary aesthetic to suit all interiors tastes.
Coolree Design ensures all products are responsibly and ethically resourced and produced to avoid any harmful impact on the environment. We’re fortunate to enjoy an abundance of beautiful greenery through the workshop windows while constructing pieces for the shop. Therefore, we value the importance of treating the earth with the utmost respect. In doing so, we only use FSC or PEFC certified hardwood timber – mainly of European and American origin – across our products. All Irish timber material comes from sustainable forests or is storm-felled wood which is carefully removed from the site.
Furthermore, remnants and offcuts from the furniture-making process are gathered and subsequently reused to produce our smaller designs such as the quaint flower vases and bottle openers. This means we can eliminate unnecessary waste in the studio. Even mounds of wood-shavings accumulated on the studio floor after a day’s work are repurposed. We pass them on to our neighbours who use it as horse bedding in their stables.
