Hugh McCarthy is an Australian furniture maker and designer.

With ten years refining his craft and aesthetic in Melbourne and Japan, Hugh developed a selection of products for his own home, capturing proportion, functionality and durability. These pieces, including tables, chairs and storage became the range from which H.McC. was established.

Every H.McC. piece is made in Hugh’s Blackburn studio with hand tools, utilising traditional wood joints and natural hard wax oils selected to wear well over time. There is no middleman, stockpile or factory production line – everything is always made to order.

Whilst the H.McC. range continues to evolve Hugh’s values remain unchanged: creating highly functional products with built-in longevity.
