The wardrobes will have spray painted panelled doors with three panels per door and a small moulding detail on the doors as per the images. The insides of the wardrobes and drawers will be made in real oak veneer with veneered edges. The fitted cornice will have a shaped moulding.


From the front; the wardrobe will fit between wall to wall and floor to ceiling. It will consist of two carcasses with drawers and have two full length panelled doors on the right side and two smaller panelled doors on the left sitting above a bank of four deep drawers (each approximately 250 mm deep). The drawer fronts will be plain, and the panelling on the doors will line up from side to side.


In total there will be three clothes rails. The two higher clothes rails will both have wardrobe rail lifts, whilst the left hand lower rail will be a chrome oval section rail with chrome ends.


The four drawers will be fitted on high quality German under drawer soft close mechanisms so they are not visible and close smoothly. All the doors will be hung on high quality German concealed style soft close hinges.


The wardrobes will have a solid framed plynth and not height adjustable plastic legs. This will be set up level in your room and the facias and trims will be scribed to fit the ceiling, walls and floor.


The wardrobe will also be anchored to the wall and fixed to the floor. We will remove the skirting boards so that we can fix the wardrobe close to the wall. Access to the sockets will be provided with a neat cut out inside the wardrobe.

We were commissioned to produce this bespoke cabinetry for a large town house in Blackheath London. The second image shows how this area had been used and it wasn't a good efficient use of the space. Under the stairs we designed and made a large double door cloakroom with two full width clothes rails and hooks and then nex to this we created three large pull out compartments that had open shelves inside for storing a variety of shoes, scarves, hats etc. The doors and pull out compartments have shaker style panelled doors and it was all hand painted on the outside to make maintainence easier.

This bespoke media unit was recently created for a home in Billericay Essex. It's fairly classical in design and features a mixtiure of drawers and cupboards. The large space in the centre is for a TV to be hung off the structural back panel. In the picture you will notice a different handle on the lower cupboard which we were trying out for our client.

The two images show a built in playroom storage unit designed to be used by children. It has two touch open doors and four touch open flap doors. The green tones are also used for more fitted furniture on the opposite side of the room. There are three height adjustable shelves with the longer span being removeable so that it can be used as a desk as the children's needs change. We will also be adding two toy carts that will be located undeer the desk. The property is located in Blackheath London and we will soon be adding more built-in furniture to this home.

The large armoire that we showed being made in our previous post is now finished and installed in a Home in South London. The blue walls and blue hand painted finish to the Armoire are in Benjamin Moore Paints. Although the piece of furniture is very tall it is still freestanding and secured to the wall for stability. It has been made so that it can be disassembled and moved to another location if required. The majority of furniture that is this scale is fully fitted but the benefit of bespoke free standing furniture is that it can always be taken with you when you move or passed on to future generations.

At 2.5 m high this large free standing cabinet is going to be the main feature in most rooms. It has 10 soft close drawers and is made in birch plywood. Photos showing it being constructed in our workshop. The cabinet will have patterend zig zag doors in two colours and the inside will be traeated with a white oil to further lighten the birch plywood. Drawers are set on Blum under drawer Tandem runners. The legs will be oiled in a clear finish to give them a rich visual quality.


The cabinet is in two main sections but because of its size it is too large for easy access into a property and therefore it has been designed to be taken apart and reconnected with the aid of high quality Festool and Lamello fittings.


The front edge has a large bevel with drawers andoors sitting back from this edge. This is made in hardwood and jointed on to the plywood edge before being mitred.
