Commissioning us

All our furniture is made to the highest quality with attention to detail being the corner stone of what we do.

We make a wide range of projects and work in a variety of materials. The cost of a piece of furniture is largely dependant on its complexity and choice of materials. One of the first questions we ask you therefore is how much do you wish to spend. As a bespoke maker I can then tailor make the piece to fit your exact needs and budget.

A guide to commissioning furniture from us

We can make pieces for anywhere in the UK as well as abroad.

We begin by establishing the initial brief including budget, discussing materials, style inspirations, sizes, where will the piece be situated, heating used in the proposed area and time frame required. This is usually done via email/phone to begin with and then perhaps meeting at your home or the workshop to discuss further. Travel expenses may be required depending on location.

As a rough guide we can usually have a piece completed within 8-12 weeks of the order being made.

I then prepare one or two designs which are either sketched ideas, or drawn in cad as well as some proposed materials and finishes.

Preparing final cad drawings, timber choices, final costs.

First payment is then required which is normally 50% to book the commission and schedule the making.

A visit to the workshop at a mutually convenient time can be arranged during the making stage.

Final balance is payable just before delivery, for which I deliver the piece in person where ever possible to complete the journey of the commission.

Any care needed for the piece will be given and furniture care packs are available on request.

If you have a project you would be interested in discussing then I would be delighted to hear from you.
