As Designer Makers we create and produce a variety of fitted and freestanding furniture from our workshop and studio in Wickford Essex. The freestanding furnture is marketed under the label of ACD (Andrew Carpenter Design) and is available direct through www.andrewcarpenterdesign.com or currently also through www.eporta.com for trade buyers. The furniture is often a past project that we have created for a specific room in a clients home and sometimes it is created as a design that we feel would work well within several of our clients homes. Occassionally we have been in converstaion with a few clients whom have found it difficult tracking down a piece which gets us thinking about how we could fill that gap.
All the pieces are still made with high attantion to detail and a long life span. Shown here is the Ayton mirror a large black oak mirror that can be hung on a wall either horizontally, or vertically. Additionally it can simply be leant against a wall. The feature mirror is intended to be thought provoking and very functional. Many of the freestanding pieces are available in bespoke sizes and can be viewed by visting www.andrewcarpenterdesign.com.

During a recent visit to a past client in Crouch End London I managed to get a couple of photos of this bespoke mirrored sliding door wardrobe with drawers that we had made. The last time we were here the room hadn't been decorated so never got to see the bigger picture. The interior was designed by award winning Interior Designer Egon Walesch and this wall paper was a bold choice and works beautifully with the bespoke blinds and silver radiator.

We have recently designed made and installed this media unit with storage for a town house in Chobham Manor Stratford. The oak and sprayed white fitted furniture has high storage with touch opening white doors set between oak edging. Below is a space for audio speakers and a large Samsung television. All the cables are routed through the back panels and behind the cabinet to the relevent hardware that is stored in the cabinets behind the sliding white doors at the bottom of the media furniture. The plynth is oak and has been scribed to fit the floor and the side panel is white to be in keeping with the white interior of the home. The row of four shelves above the white sliding doors can either be used as a bookcase or for display. It was built at our workshop in Essex before being reassembled in the Olympic Park home and fitted to the walls and floors. The installation process took one and a half days to complete. Next job is the master bedroom wardrobes.
