Bespoke furniture & upholstery
As the majority of our designs are bespoke, craftsmanship is key to allowing us to produce unique designs. Where possible we use local crafts people and manufacturers who help us to achieve this.
We often find that clients can't find what they’re looking for on the high street or the internet, as often what they’re looking for is too expensive, the wrong size, shape or colour. We look at ways to create furniture to meet the smallest budget or the most extravagant. We can also use clever tricks to stretch a client’s budget meaning we're able to spend more on certain feature items because we've made savings on other items.
We frequently build lighting into joinery, shelving, wardrobes, and recesses that become an integral part of our schemes. We can also design and install magnificent chandeliers which often form the focal point of a room. We also work with the client and electrical engineers on lighting layouts, providing detailed drawings for the contractor to work from.
Example of "clever tricks" with bespoke furniture:
Finding ways to use off the shelf items and customise them has proved a cost effective way to achieve a high-end look.
Bespoke television unit
For example, a client wanted a television unit but only had a relatively small budget. Firstly, we looked at their living space and worked out what size would work best and what style the client was trying to achieve over all for her living room. From that, we designed a long and low television unit that acted as additional storage and display space for the room. We used two off-the-shelf base units to keep the cost down but added a bespoke hidden plinth and lime washed oak top. This softened the overall look whilst still keeping it streamlined and modern.
Bespoke wall-to-wall wardrobes
One of our clients wanted wall to wall wardrobes but was finding the made-to-measure services provided by retailers too expensive. We managed to reduce the cost by using local craftsman and a plywood carcass instead of a more expensive wood interior. For the exterior we used off the shelf doors mixed with a beautiful contrasted Bur Walnut. Because our craftsman put great care in to choosing the ply sheets and adding joinery detail to the wardrobe it gave an overall affect far greater than its actual cost.
