ABOUT US

JOSHUA ALBERT HAYNES

​Based in Harrogate, North Yorkshire, I am a furniture maker with an absolute affinity for wood. 

I graduated University in 2013 with a degree in product design, and since I have always wanted to leave my mark on the world. Nothing brings me more reward than knowing that a piece of work I have poured my heart into will become a part of someones home.

I started Albert and Alfred originally making picture frames for my fathers's artwork.

I wanted to look at a frame as a piece of design work, and I wanted to keep the originality of a piece alive by creating a handmade frame original to every piece of artwork.

 

I’ve always had a love for timber, the different species of hardwood can be so beautiful in their grain and colours that I wanted this to be the backbone of my products. Using contrasting hardwoods and a little joinery to add beauty and strength to a piece can transform something ordinary into something special that can last for generations."
