This site is run by a group of leading designer makers in the UK specialising in furniture (or closely allied disciplines). DMOU is not a society, or an association, or a guild. There is no-one in charge, no committee, and no-one pays any subscriptions. All there is in fact is a membership knitted together by an email forum, plus this website. This membership consists of a large body of excellent designer-makers of furniture from all over the UK, including the top names in the field. Every member has been invited by other members.
