Commissioning a piece of furniture


Commissioning a bespoke piece of furniture is a highly rewarding process.  The final piece of furniture is personal and unique, produced specifically to meet your requirements. 

If you decide you would like to commission a piece of furniture the first step is to discuss the detail of the piece you have in mind. That will include aspects such as size, if it will be built in or freestanding, any specific functions etc. Usually there is a meeting at the intended location of the piece to assist with the understanding of the brief.

It is important at this stage to discuss your budget. There are a few variables that effect price, such as the materials used, the complexity of the build and the build time required, which inform the final design.

Once the basic parameters are established, the design process begins. Drawings are made for your final approval and you are able to make any changes you wish at this stage. The service is free throughout this process, with no commitment on your part.

Once the final design has been agreed a deposit is paid, usually 50% of the total price.  Construction then starts. This is mainly done at the workshop, although some final adjustments are completed on site if the piece is built-in.  You will be kept up to date regularly on progress and can receive emailed pictures at key stages during the build.

Once the piece is finished, it is delivered in person and installed in its final position.
