Aaron Barton

Founded in 2012 by fourth generation maker Aaron C. Barton, Backwoods Original has working with its hands running through its blood. Based out of the Backwoods Workshop in South East Queensland, we design and craft honest handmade furniture and installations with an aesthetic inspired by traditional craftsmanship and contemporary form.

Whether your experience with Backwoods Original is through our furniture, one of our conceptual retail spaces or our public exhibition installations our ethos is the same—design it for the test of time, build it like it is the last of its kind.

Each Backwoods Original is handcrafted out of salvaged and sustainable materials for their character and low environmental impact. We strive to make old materials useful again and pay homage the stories embedded in their surfaces.
