Meet the Maker: Read all about MooBoo Home, 4 - 6 Stable Yard Studios

Creative, unique pieces of home decor with a contemporary take on vintage styles.

MooBoo Home is set in the heart of the Devon countryside within the grounds of Cockington Country Park. To the rear of the historic Cockington Court you will find a cluster of craft studios, and MooBoo Home can be found in the historic Stable Yard. We design and make on site, and our visitors can watch us work and talk to us about our designs as well as view our timbers and choose the perfect piece of timber for their design. Our Cockington Court Craft Centre studio showroom is ever changing, so no two visits are ever the same.

Andy and Nic are a husband-and-wife team. MooBoo Home started in their garden under a gazebo in 2014 and has grown steadily ever since. From gazebo to shed, from London to Devon, from the garage to Cockington Court Craft Centre – the last 9 years have been quite the journey.

They are passionate about sustainability, reclamation, and energy efficiency. They design lighting and homewares that are forever fluid, changing with the raw materials that we have available, fluctuating with current styles and trends, responding to our clients wants and needs.

Cockington Court Craft Centre

Visit their studio in the stunning grounds of Cockington Court to see their current creations, as well as discuss your design needs and choose the perfect piece of timber for your bespoke design. Whilst there enjoy the whole site, Cockington Country Park and Manor House are listed in the top 10 free things to do in Torbay. Take in the stunning gardens and have a walk around the lakes, relax on the lawn and watch a quintessentially English game of cricket (match days only), sample a cream tea in the Seven Dials cafe, roam the woodland walks in nearby Manscombe Woods. Visit the historic church and explore the craft studios on site. The Stable Yard is buzzing all year round, you can watch the Blacksmiths and Glassblowers at work daily, commission stunning jewellery from Jo Bradford and Son, sample artisan gin at Torbay Gin and pick up the perfect gift for babies and children in Tulip Wood.

Take a look at their online studio in advance of your visit and discover wooden beam chandeliers, luxury outdoor lighting fixtures, cluster pendant lighting, farmhouse style rustic furniture, unique lamps, gifts, vintage phonograph horn speakers and much more.

MooBoo Home's table and floor lamps create pockets of warmth, and ambience, in your home by carefully placing our wall or floor lamps with decorative bulbs around your space. Andy and Nic are inspired by the timber and ceramics that they find, and they create lamps for ambience, warmth and to evoke that cosy hygge feeling. They match the bulb to the lamp making the piece itself completely unique. Choose from any of their ready to ship lamps in the studio or ask them to design something unique for your space.

MooBoo Home specialise in bespoke wooden beam chandeliers and are each unique. They can be rustic or industrial, have shades or exposed bulbs, and can be contemporary or vintage in design. Andy and Nic create chandeliers that match you, your home, your style and help you find your desired ambience. They specialise in wooden beam chandeliers using very old, sometimes ancient, reclaimed timbers. They have hundreds of Italian fabric cables and many styles and colours of components and have lots of stunning reclaimed timbers to choose from. If they don’t have the exact right piece in the worksop, they will find it for you.

MooBoo Home's outdoor lighting can transform a garden at the flick of a switch. Say goodbye to boring black plastic cables, fixed wall lights and solar fairy lights, and say hello to creative, mains powered, stunning lighting. Andy and Nic can make an outdoor weatherproof lighting system to suit your space and style, from cable sets to stand alone tree lamps, they can take your outdoor space from lovely to fabulous.

MooBoo Home bespoke clocks are the perfect addition to any space. Made from oak whiskey barrel lids or cable reel ends, each is different from the next. You choose the exact timber, colour, numbers or numerals, mechanism colour and they do the rest.

MooBoo Home acoustic speakers don’t need cables or batteries, they are perfect to use in the garden, park or at the beach, the sound from your phone can be brilliantly amplified from this unique passive speaker. Andy and Nic use genuine vintage phonograph horns or make wooden acoustic speakers. They have recently gone viral on TikTok with their vintage phonograph horn speaker.

Cluster pendant lights are very popular for spaces with high ceilings, such as hallways, staircases, or homes with vaulted ceilings. These custom pendants are perfect for those homes where reclaimed timber wont suit, but there is a want, and need, for something different and unique.

MooBoo Home make a range of wall lighting to suit any space. With their stunning range of decorative Italian fabric cables, made to your custom length, you can now place a wall light anywhere in your home, there’s no need for expensive electrical work to put in mains power. Perfect for bedsides, firesides, a gloomy corner or next to your favourite chair, we can design something perfect for you. Add a little bit of hygge to your interior with one of our unique lamps.

What better than a personalised gift for someone special? Designed with you and handmade in the studio – you can be guaranteed there won’t be another like it! They print directly onto the timber, then Andy painstakingly inks in the design and text.

Andy and Nic source a lot of their wood from timber recycling project’s, their aim is to rescue, re-use and recycle tonnes of wood otherwise destined for landfill. They love old and historic timbers and try and find out as much as we can about their original use, the location and dates of the original build. Old furniture can be given a new lease of life, or a completely different purpose, with just a little love and care.

We love to use reclaimed materials, but we don’t use second hand electrical components. Our cables, lamp holders, switches and plugs are brand new and all come from reputable suppliers. They are fully compliant and UKCA certified. All our lamps and fixtures undergo end of line electrical testing and are certified before leaving the studio. We have a huge range or decorative and functional LED bulbs, and you can find a wide range on our studio.

Ethos We believe that timber is beautiful no matter its age or previous use. We try and re-use everything we can in today’s throw away world and hope that we can make a small and beautiful difference to our planet and our homes.

Re-claim. Re-use. Re-love.
