The next stage will be to re assemble various components and glue them together before being packed up and then installed in our clients home in Blackheath London. The bookcase will be fitted and scribed to the floor, walls and ceiling to produce a fully fitted bookcase.

Our latest design is for a property in Maldon Essex. It is a contemporary oak and sprayed blue bookcase with cupboards and a seperate media unit for a TV. The furniture is fitted and scribed to the walls and floor. The solid oak plynth, cornice and cappings all add to the luxurious feel and add longevity. The oak is finished in a hard wearing hand applied oil finish which is easy to maintain and repair.


To add visual interest and flexibility to the bookcase blue open backed boxes were created that can be moved along the shelves or relocated to other positions.


The central area is designed for hanging a painting and this has LED lighting which is controlled by a wall switch.


The smaller bookcase has a TV on a fully extendable pull out arm. All the cables are routed behind and below to the TV hardware. Doors are touch open and electrical sockets have been relocated into the back and side panels of the bookcase.


It was installed over two days and from initial meeting with our client to the design being worked out, made and instaled was eight weeks.

The images show a recently completed interior project for a home in Brentwood, Essex. Our client contacted us with a rough idea of what they required in their new extension. After talking through various design optins we put forward a design with the price for designing, making and installing. The furniture was all built at our workshop in Wickford, Essex before being disasembled sprayed and put back together in our clients home.


The bespoke solution ensures that the client has got exactly what they wanted in terms of style, function, colour and of course it fits the space perfectly, from the floor to the ceiling and from wall to wall. This type of made to measure furniture can't be bought on the high street as it has to be designed specifically for the home and then handmade.


The design consists of a library with sliding oak ladder, the library also has soft close drawers. A wall of display cabinets with glass shelving and glass panelled doors all in low iron bevelled glass. A connecting seat with open storage below, storage cabinets and a radiator cabinet. The furniture wraps around three walls and is all scribed to fit.


It is installed directly onto the concrete floor so that there is no movement and the oak floor is finished up to the front edge with the furniture skirting covering the joint, ensuring a seamless look.


High quality hanmade fitted furniture will add value to the property as well as creating a WOW factor.

This fitted shoe storage cupboard was made for a house in Billericay, Essex. It is a very narrow space that had been a cloak room with the shoes ending up piled on the floor and a freestanding shoe rack. Our clients wanted to make better use of the space and to be able to fit in many more shoes in an organised manner. The design we arrived at has two traditional panelled doors with angled shoe storage and a space at the bottom for wellington boots. It is slightly offset to the right so the left door avoids the radiator when opened. The fitted furniture had to be designed and constructed in an unusual manner as it was not possible to build or move the furniture around in the narrow space. The owners came to us as they wanted to use cabinet makers to create a high quality solution and have it all made in a workshop and not in their home.
