Materials

Whilst we work predominantly in wood this is by no means exclusive. We have experience of working with a diverse range of materials, as well as working alongside craftsman who excel in other materials who share our uncompromising standards and commitment to quality.

 

Wood

Whether in solid form or veneer, wood is an intriguing natural material, each species and tree is uniquely different. We have a good reputation with some of the best timber yards and veneer suppliers in Britain and select only the very best sustainably sourced timber for our projects. Occasionally, when the project commands it, we will buy an entire tree to make sure the colour and characteristics of the wood matches throughout the project.

Metal

Some of the best furniture often involves getting bespoke parts fabricated in metal, be it stainless steel, aluminium, silver, brass or chrome plating. Whether it’s a bespoke handle, decorative inlay, silver leafing or a custom-made hinge, we will work with trusted and experience metalworkers to produce an exceptional product.

Glass & Mirror

Whether your piece of furniture requires clear, textured, coloured or decorative glass we work with two of the best glass suppliers in the south of England and can offer a mind-blowing selection of glass and mirror.

Leather, Fabric & Flock

Often a piece of furniture requires the addition of a softer material, whether it’s a dining chair, leather panelled desk or a flock lined jewellery box. We use a highly skilled local upholster, and can provide literally thousands of fabric swatches for you to choose from.
