the story so far

We are a small family business and team passionate about great design, sustainability and creating furniture to be treasured forever. We are a team of three - Drew (maker, designer), Tanya (marketing, styling) and Billie (our Wolfhound X, workshop assistant and half-time entertainment!).

With over 25 years’ experience in the building industry, Hold Fast Designs’ founder Drew, honed his skills in carpentry and metal fabrication in commercial construction. Working on large scale architecturally designed projects provided him a vast array of skills and a keen eye for detail.

Tired of seeing the wasteful practices of the building industry Drew started salvaging hardwood timber from sites that was destined for landfill. He couldn’t stand seeing such valuable resources being thrown away. He made his first table using reclaimed timber and that was it, he was hooked. His passion for woodwork and design has evolved ever since and what began as a hobby has evolved into Hold Fast Designs.
