If we have made staircases a speciality, this is not to say that this is the only line of work in which we specialise. Our love of timber extends to bespoke furniture as well.
Whereas staircases imply a good understanding of 3 dimensional geometry, bespoke furniture requires a set of different skills: a profound knowledge of the various styles and periods in furniture design, a good understanding of ergonomics and proportions, a creative edge and, finally, an open mind so one can work as easily in the reproduction of antique pieces or in the creation of new ones.
Because our workforce is composed of both trained joiners and cabinet makers, we are as much at ease in the design and manufacture of bespoke furniture than that of staircases. We have over the years been involved in the design and manufacture of gilded mirrors, all hand carved; ecclesiastical furniture, producing various "President's chairs", pews and lecterns for churches in the North-East; kitchens, all bespoke designed and made to suit the needs of the most demanding clients while combining style with excellence in execution together with competitive pricing; and finally, free-standing furniture for all rooms throughout the house: fitted bedrooms, dining tables and chairs, bookcases…the list is endless.
We have a particularly good knowledge of the Arts & Crafts, Art Nouveau and Art Deco periods, having been involved in the reproduction of pieces by Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Frank Lloyd Wright, Voysey, etc as well as the restoration, refurbishment and the creation of new pieces for a listed Art Deco property on the Isle of Jersey. But we are as much at ease in the classic styles, and will soon be starting copying a George III chair as part of a private commission where we've been asked to produce a set of 10 chairs and 2 carvers for an existing table .

As with our bespoke staircases, a combination of traditional skills and modern technology enables us to produce pieces of outstanding quality whilst keeping costs down and therefore, being very competitive.
