KOOS Furniture

“My best decision by far was to contact Outset. They have helped me with business advice, from accounting to website design.”…

Steve’s story

Launched in 2017 thanks to tailored support from the business start-up experts, Outset Cornwall, KOOS Furniture is at the forefront of the resurgence in traditional craftsmanship taking place across Cornwall.

Founded by Steven Coonick, a master cabinet maker from the internationally renowned Rowden Woodworking School of Fine Furniture, KOOS designs and creates bespoke fine furniture as well as offering products from an existing collection and limited edition pieces. Taken from the Cornish word for forest, ‘KOOS’ furniture is made to order from hand selected sustainably sourced hardwoods and quality materials.

“I initially came to Outset for advice on running a small business as Outset ran courses on accounting etc.

But since this initial contact, Outset has helped with business advice from accounting and website design and to organising my first ever business show. Getting in touch with Outset has definitely been my best business decision.”

Asked what he thought was the best thing about running his own business Steve answered emphatically, “Having control over the quality of products and services I can provide and obtaining a good work life balance.”

With commissions already completed for a number of prestigious clients, Steven’s exceptional design and precise execution is flying the flag in Cornwall for fine furniture crafted using traditional skills.
