Jacqueline Duffield is the owner of The Bespoke Home and makes beautiful pieces of furniture from her workshop in Penrith, Cumbria.
Her passion for furniture, unique design and attention to detail shines through in her work and has established her as one of the area's finest cabinet makers.
Jacqueline was born in Surrey but also lived in the New Forest in Hampshire and Newcastle upon Tyne before finally settling in the Lake District after it captured her heart.
Jacqueline has always had an appreciation for wood, and marvels at it's natural beauty. She completed a Cabinet Making course at The Wood Workshop in Penrith where Richard and Mark taught her everything she knows. 10 years later they still can't get rid of her and she is now very much a part of the furniture (pun intended)!
Jacqueline takes on commissions custom made to your requirements. She also has a range of stock items which can be found at craft fairs (see the Events page) and at selected galleries across Cumbria and the North of England.
As much as possible she uses sustainable local Cumbrian hard woods but also enjoys the uniqueness of exotics. The variety of natural colours and grains available in wood is staggering and something Jacqueline loves to showcase in her work.
