Over 40 Years In The Making

About Us

 

All of our bespoke furniture is handmade in England from the very finest materials in one of our four workshops by teams of talented, dedicated craftsmen.

Welcome 

We’ve been making furniture for over 40 years, gaining valuable experience replicating antiques using traditional, time-honoured cabinet making techniques. Some of our cabinetmakers have been working for us for over two decades.   

All our furniture is handmade in England. We have four workshops around the country with a team of craftsmen who are dedicated to creating bespoke furniture, all designed to give you years of reliable service.

Our creative, homely designs are now being shipped as far afield as the Channel Islands, Europe and Australia.... so distance is never an object.

We’re really looking forward to working with you to create a home that reflects your eye for truly impressive craftsmanship and genuine quality.

Transparent Pricing 

Purchasing a new kitchen is a major investment so we want our clients to be fully satisfied with any design that we’ve created before placing an order.

All our prices are published on-line and if you’re using the Unfitted Design Tool you’ll see real-time updates on prices for all the 100’s of options available to you.

Each piece of furniture is fully itemized and individually priced and will include worktops, knobs and handles so there’s no hidden surprises.

As main agents for all the top sinks, taps and appliance manufacturers, we’ll try and match any online prices.

You may wish us to fit your new kitchen – just let us know and we’d be pleased to quote you for the installation of your kitchen furniture and worktops.

To help clients fully understand their proposed finished kitchen, we will always email and post copies of each design and quotation to assist you in making an informed choice.

Finishing 

We do not offer unfinished cabinets for you to paint on site. All our furniture is painted and finished to the highest standards in our workshops, saving you time and money.

It takes approximately 7 days to completely paint the average kitchen on site and requires 20-25 litres plus of paint. That’s a lot of paint and a much larger task than you’d imagine.

Carcasses - All carcasses are completely sealed to protect them from marking or staining.

Painted Furniture - With our workshops having a dust-free environment you are guaranteed a finish to the highest standards. We apply two undercoats and three top coats with surfaces rubbed back between coats of paint for a superior finish.

Timber Furniture and Worktops - We lacquer all timber surfaces to help protect them against damp and every day wear and tear. They require virtually no maintenance (we recommend using furniture polish, e.g. Mr Sheen and a soft cloth) and the surface finishing will last for many years.

Colour Matching Service – Choose any colour form any paint manufacturer’s swatch and we’ll match it. You can have 1, 2 or 3 different colours in your kitchen and there’s no surcharge. When we deliver your new kitchen we will always provide you with a pot of extra paint just in case you need to touch up any bumps and scratches.    

Guarantee 

We know that our furniture stands up to the test of time. After all, its been handcrafted by cabinetmakers who know that when you employ traditional construction techniques with high quality materials, the finished furniture will give you years of first class reliability.

In fact we’re so confident that all our furniture is the most solidly built available that we back it up with a 10 year guarantee.

In the unlikely event that, subject to fair wear and tear, any of the cabinetry we supply should fail or not be fit-for-purpose, we will repair or replace the faulty item for a period of 10 years from the date of purchase.

The guarantee covers the failure of the doors, drawers and shelves including hinges and drawer runners. Terms and conditions apply. Please ask for further details.

Charter

Comprehensive 10 point charter that allows you to purchase with confidence:

1) No obligation design service and definitely no high pressure salesmen or women (our designers are trained to design not to sell).

2) We’ll visit your home at a time to suit your busy lifestyle. We think that its important to see the way you live first-hand (other companies expect you to forward measurements to them which doesn’t give them any understanding of your home’s design and layout). We’ll spend a couple of hours with you taking a detailed brief and dimensions.

3) All our cabinets are truly bespoke. Every part of your kitchen is made specifically for you - we have no standard cupboard sizes (unlike other companies who expect you to compromise on the design to be able accommodate their limited range of cabinets).

4) We can either work to your budget or leave us to create the ultimate design. We’ll forward you a detailed quotation, plans, elevations and suggested paint colours. It normally takes three or four designs to fine tune the design until you’re completely happy with your dream kitchen.

5) Once an order has been placed, we’ll give you a reliable delivery and installation date. We’ll also create detailed services plans for your electrician and plumber (including lighting and worktop socket locations).

6) We try and use only FSC sourced timber and purchase from the closest suppliers to minimize our carbon footprint (unlike other companies whose materials have travelled many tens of thousands of miles, e.g., America to China, China to the UK).

7) Your furniture will be constructed by our cabinetmakers in one of our four workshops, where we’ve been employing traditional craftsmanship for over 40 years. We are a truly British company with conventional values and employing time-honoured construction methods. Our traditional joinery techniques are rooted into every piece of furniture we construct, guaranteeing you furniture that is immensely durable and strong.

8) We will fully finish your furniture in our workshops. For example, our painted furniture includes primer coat, undercoat, three or four top coats (depending on colour and paint selected) and distressing (if ordered). We do not fit the handles unless we are installing the kitchen because their position is a very personal decision that can only be decided after the furniture has been installed (our installation guide does offer recommendations).

9) Your order is delivered directly from our workshops. We do not use packaging (because it is so environmentally wasteful). Instead we lovingly blanket wrap each piece of furniture for maximum protection as if it’s a cherished heirloom.

10) Such is our commitment and confidence in the quality of our furniture that we guarantee all our cabinetry with a 10-year warranty.
