Culshaw a Brief History
G Culshaw & Sons was established in the 1930’s (see invoice below from 1932). They worked as church furnishers, carpenters and joiners in the Mawdesley area.
After studying art, design and woodwork for 7 years, Michael Culshaw returned to Mawdesley to set up his own business as a bespoke furniture maker on the original site of his great grand-fathers business.
Establishing the business in 1992, Michael has gained a reputation for exceptional quality, design and artistic flair in his furniture.
Origins of The Culshaw Kitchenette
Michael has always had a passion for design and has spent many years collecting original and iconic furniture to inspire his work.
One such purchase was a 1950’s Formica faced plywood kitchenette with an enamelled drop down worktop. Culshaw developed this idea further and created a small fold away kitchen built into a cupboard. A cupboard that looks beautiful on the outside and has a fully functioning kitchen on the inside.
