Staverton has a long history of high-quality bespoke office furniture design and craftsmanship.

Staverton Joinery arose out of the rebuilding of the 14th century medieval hall at Dartington in South Devon. The restoration needed to be executed by skilled craftsmen, who were at that time in short supply and had to be recruited from further afield. Upon completion of the Great Hall project three years later, measures were taken to prevent the team of craftsmen from dispersing. An old flour mill at the nearby village of Staverton was refitted to provide new works and house the gifted set of joiners, cabinet makers and builders. Thus a new company was formed called Staverton Builders Limited.

During the Second World War large contracts for the Ministry of Defence were undertaken but in 1946 a fire destroyed the original factory. The adjacent site was then adopted as Staverton’s home.
By the 1960s, Staverton had developed a reputation for high quality craftsmanship and securing major contracts for specialist joinery in the Middle East. This period also saw Staverton manufacturing furniture ranges for the Crown Suppliers and this developed into many contracts for Crown Court Buildings and major London hotels.

Otto's is a family run business and was founded in Exeter, Devon in 2013, when we took on our first retail space in Exeters' up and coming independent area around Fore Street. I founded Otto's as a young 22 year old, after leaving my hometown of Coventry and my job in the construction trade, with a modest pot of savings as a start up!

The original shop dated back to the late 1800's where it had many incarnations, such as a butchers and a car showroom, it has always been a great retail space, full of character! We operated both our webstore and shop from here for 3 years before we sadly outgrew the space due to the expansion of our webstore.

We moved into our new warehouse & showroom in May 2016. We instantly fell in love with the industrial aspect of the space which is a complimentary backdrop for our stock. The warehouse provided us with a large retail space, stock room, office, workshop and loading bay and was a huge step forward from our humble origins.

The warehouse dates back to the 1930s, when it served as a Morris car garage, and a telephone exchange during the 1950's & 1960's. It retains all its original features including it's concertina garage doors, exposed pipework and beams.

Otto's is now run by a father & son team, Lewis & David Macskimming. David runs the workshop & restoration while I, Lewis run the website, shipping and logistics. We source stock from all over Europe and ship worldwide, providing well curated and sympathetically restored 20th century antiques.
