Born in Canada, Selwyn Holmes was educated in England and trained in 3D Design at Kingston upon Thames before starting ‘Dansel’ with his wife Danielle from their home near Bridport in 1976. They began by making one-off pieces of furniture to commission. In 1979 they expanded and moved to their present premises in Abbotsbury where, with the luxury of a selling

space they were able to develop a range of smaller accessories to compliment the furniture. The workshop has now moved

back to Eype where Selwyn works in his self-built cabin in homegrown woodland.


He sells his work through Dansel Gallery, please phone
