Who is Ryan Christie

Ryan Christie Custom Furniture will bring your design dreams to life!

Ryan has always had a creative flair growing up, his creations were mostly large abstract paintings. Ryan never dreamt that he would start making furniture for a living, and this is where his story begins.

The first piece of furniture that defined Ryan’s style and gave the vision for the future, began in 2010 with the creation of a large trestle table for his home; made from old roof beams a friend gave him. Sharing his absolute excitement for his first masterpiece, Ryan showed a picture to a close friend who ran a furniture shop in Parkhurst. She loved the piece so much that she commissioned Ryan to make a small dining table for her shop. The following day a lady came into the shop and ordered that dining room table straight off the showroom floor! From that moment on, Ryan’s garage was converted into a small workshop. It is with the support of Ryan’s family and closest friends that the BIG DREAM has become a reality.

The workmanship and style of Ryan came to him naturally! He loves working with solid woods however the reclaimed / weathered look is something he is most passionate about. Demolition yards are one of the many places that Ryan keeps his eyes open for any reclaimed and old pieces of wood that can be used to create beautiful pieces of furniture.

Out of the heart of Johannesburg, the master pieces that leave the warehouse are all hand crafted by a 4 man team lead by Ryan Christie himself, along with a master craftsman – Heinz from Austria, who has been in the industry for over 50 years.
