Michael Acey – Designing for Life

15.07.16

After graduating in 2001 with an HND in Furniture Construction and Design, Michael Acey went on to gain an invaluable eight years of experience working for Alan Hume Cabinetmakers before establishing his own partnership business in Glasgow.

After 6 years of successful trading and rapid growth Michael identified a gap in the market for high end bespoke furniture and interiors in his homeland of Argyll and the decision was made to relocate and re-establish himself as Michael Acey Furniture & Bespoke Interiors.

He maintains a strong working relationship with both Alan Hume and another acclaimed designer whom he has worked closely with throughout the years, Paul Hodgkiss.

Keeping It in the Family

Almost 12 years after Michael embarked on his career as a cabinet maker, he made the interesting discovery that the skill had been in his ancestry.

Born in 1837 his great, great, great, grandfather was a self-employed cabinet maker initially working from home. His son – Michael’s great, great, grandfather - carried on this trade, carving aeroplane propellers from solid wood during the First World War.

The trade was continued by Michael's great grandfather who, although he didn't start his working life as a cabinet maker, became one of the top craftsman of window display cabinets in London, carrying out commissions for Abbotts & Co and then Dolcis.

They were called William Henry Menhinick and the youngest passed away the year before Michael was born - the creativity is in the genes and the cabinet making heritage lives on.
