We offer fully bespoke interiors with all furniture and joinery starting off as raw materials, allowing us to create the best practical and unique solutions for your property. As Designers Makers we place a lot of emphasis on getting the design right in terms of your needs and its visual and functional qualites. Our aim is to make the fitted furniture or freestanding furniture exceptional and not ordinary and to differentiate our work from mass produced furniture.
We have been trading since 2001 and are very much a design led manufacturing company. The company was established by Andrew Carpenter a Furniture Design Graduate of Ravensbourne College Of Design and Communication in London. His designs have been shown at Aram Designs, ReDesign and the International Furniture Fair in New York. Before establishing Carpenter & Carpenter he worked as a Furniture Designer for leading furniture design and manufacturing companies. All the staff have backgrounds in Design or as skilled craftsmen and joiners. This experience and knowledge allows us to bring extra qualities to your project, ensuring that your commission works pefectly, is unique, is made to budget, is built to last and will add value to your property.
We take great pride in the work we produce and attention to detail is paramount. How an edge is sanded and what sort of micro bevel or radius is applied in the workshop makes a difference to how a paint or lacquer appears and wears. Choosing veneer that matches and designing tolerances and ways for natural timber to move and breathe in your home are just a few considerations that are implemented.
A wide variety of high quality materials are offered to create original solutions such as; solid timber, glass, man made boards, veneers and stainless steel. Sustainability is taken seriously and the timber used is chosen carefully from managed forests in Europe and North America, manmade boards are certified by the FSC.
We have many satisfied customers including Private Clients, Architects, Interior Designers, Companies, Corporations and Galleries.
We look forward to hearing about your project.
“We commissioned Carpenter & Carpenter for a range of work, from a home office to a dining table and even a mirror. The company is a delight to work with, from Andrew's clever designs which capture our ideas perfectly, through the construction of high quality, beautiful looking finishes and finally the considerate, tidy installation work. We are delighted with our furniture and would not hesitate to recommend Carpenter & Carpenter to anyone looking for a stylish, high quality and individual bespoke furniture assignment.”
