Eric Phillips creates contemporary fine furniture, interiors and wooden watercraft. Based in Bennettsbridge, Co Kilkenny, Ireland, on the banks of the river Nore, he uses when possible, local naturally felled wood: spalted beech, Irish cedar, Irish ash, oak or larch to build contemporary fine furniture, wooden strip canoes, surfboards as well as commissioned in-built pieces.

Originally from Southern California, Eric grew up with a passion for surfing, working with wood and design. During a twenty-five year career in Paris, France, he developed a design and build company focused on interior architecture for domestic and commercial spaces, working on projects conceived independently and in collaboration with architects such as Didier Faustino, William Matthews and Renzo Piano.

On moving to Co Kilkenny in 2016, Eric has continued his business to the same high standards. He is currently developing projects inspired by the Irish landscape with local materials in the creation of beautiful hand crafted pieces that explore fluidity and function on and off the water.
