Liam O'Donnell

Having been involved the furniture manufacturing industry for over 16 years, hand-crafting bespoke pieces of furniture is Liam O'Donnell's passion. He is currently the Director of commercial furniture manufacture Valdivian Furniture where he is committed to promoting its growth and success.

It is Liam's aim to take their highly creative, quality designs to the forefront of the hospitality furniture world whilst maintaining an unrivalled commitment to the environment.

His employment history in this sector reflects his dedication to and knowledge of all aspects of this specialist industry. Liam is a highly skilled wood machinist with the ability to carefully design and manufacture furniture to the highest quality and as Director, this meticulous attention to detail is second nature.

Being a company Director, Liam has in-depth knowledge of a range of business functions including manufacturing, staff management and workshop management. His experience in overseeing all business functions allows him to make important decisions when it comes to promoting and expanding the company. Despite his senior responsibilities, Liam is still very much a team player and enjoy working with others.

Liam is particularly passionate about endangered species and he ensures that his own personal interest consolidates the environmental objectives behind Valdivian. Even the company name derives from this as ‘Valdivian’ is the name of a temperate rain forest in South America that forms part of the neotropic ecozone. As part of this commitment, Liam ensures that all the materials the company uses comply with their high environmental standards in order to minimise the company’s footprint. All of their wood is carefully sourced and the packaging for furniture is 100% biodegradable.

Seeing their concepts and ideas transformed into reality for their customers is by far the most rewarding aspect of Liam's job and it’s hugely satisfying when he sees his hand-crafted furniture taking centre stage in a restaurant, bar or hotel.
