What we do:

Hand made bespoke furniture made in our Chichester West Sussex workshop. 

We create everything entirely by hand.

  • Home offices  

  • Built-in wardrobes and other unique interior installations for both private and commercial use 


What we use: 

We have a strong ethos on utilizing only the best sourced hard woods from local West Sussex saw mills where all timber is responsibly sourced and traceable. Build it once and build it right. Commonly used timbers in our projects include, Oak, Ash, Sycamore, Walnut, we will also occasionally use Elm, Apple, and Maple. Every board we use in a project is hand selected, with a clear image of the design in mind we can easily look at the colour and grain of the wood and select the most appropriate board. 

Our Inspiration:

At the heart of our Furniture company we have a strong Scandinavian and Japanese influence, seeking a simplicity in modern living. We have A passion for producing some of the finest luxury hand made bespoke furniture and Kitchens within the UK. From stunning center piece Extending dining tables, to complete renovations of interiors and commercial shop fit outs.

Where does our furniture go:

The high end furniture we make tends to end up in and around London and the surrounding counties, Surrey, Sussex, Kent etc. whether for private individuals or commercial architectural firms. We service a large local area of West Sussex, with many clients in based a stones throw from our Chichester workshop. We have also worked with clients in Zurich, France and the Netherlands.

How we Make:

Every Piece of Furniture is designed and hand made from scratch in our small family run workshop, using both traditional techniques like dovetailed draws, mortise and tennon joints for our Japanese shoji doors, Carving and steam bending. But also modern techniques like free form curved lamination, vacuum press and CNC machines when appropriate.

Commissioning Hand Made Japanese Shoji Doors 

Japanese Shoji doors are one of the most elegant and efficient ways to divide up a room without loosing that visual sense of space we get from open plan living. Create visual breaks between living spaces whilst at the same time letting light flood from room to room, our Shoji doors built in the traditional Japanese way are as durable as a solid oak mortise and tennon door but with infinity more style and elegance. These stylish additions although Japanese in heritage fit in with so many decors, we can design and hand make these doors for and style of room, changing the slat design or just the timber colour can massively alter the feel to tie into a more contemporary feel home we have made and fitted the Shoji sliding doors around our local West Sussex area and as far as Kent, London and Surrey

Taylor Made and bespoke chairs 

Any one who has ever working in an office, or simply likes to sit and read a book for a few hours will appreciate the difference between a ergonomically well designed chair and a badly designed chair.
