Cat Garcia shoots Marcin Miller for the latest issue of Soho Notes.

‘The Maker: Marcin Miller. Meet Soho House’s go-to carpenter: designer, craftsman and perhaps London’s original hipster.

Marcin Miller is one of life’s born charmers. Tall and broad shouldered, he is rarely seen without his felt hat, robust white beard, or corduroy waistcoat. His voice positively booms, thick with Slavic authority. The subject upon which he has such conviction? Woodwork, in all its forms. He’s been working with it since he was a boy growing up in Warsaw. More than 50 years later, and long-since based in London, he has become, shall we say, part of the Soho House furniture, working with us as director of carpentry since our very first opening on Greek Street in 1995.’
