Egon Walesch Interiors & Flowers
On behalf of a client in London N6, I recently commissioned Carpenter & Carpenter to design, construct and install a set of sliding wardrobes for the client's dressing room. I invited quotes from a number of companies, including specialist wardrobe manufacturers. We chose Carpenter & Carpenter as their design was genuinely bespoke and tailored to the space rather than merely customised from standard templates. Given this, the quote from C&C was very competitive. Working with Andrew on the design was a pleasure. He was thorough and had many good ideas in relation to the design. He was also very willing to find ways to ensure the clients got exactly what they wanted. I and the clients are very pleased with the end result. I highly recommend Carpenter & Carpenter for your carpentry and joinery requirements.
Mr Sami - Islington, London.
I found Andrew through online research and am so pleased I decided to commission him and his team at Carpenter & Carpenter for a project which involved building eaves storage. From day 1, Andrew was extremely professional, gave helpful advice on how to fine-tune and improve what we had in mind for the project, and highly transparent. He consulted us regularly on materials and design through out the build to make sure we were happy with the end product, which was very important for us and made us feel included as we had a say in the final output. Andrew and his team at C&C completed the project on time and without hassle. HIs entire team were very courteous, professional and respective of our home during the installation period. I will definitely use Andrew and his team at C&C in the future without hesitation.
Mr Glen - Crouch End, London.
Andrew installed a large bespoke library shelving unit with rolling ladder for me. Very impressive service from the initial design consultations right through to the onsite installation. My key brief was for Andrew was to ensure the new library looked like it had been a permanent part of my house for many years which I believe they have really delivered upon. I was consulted regularly during the design process and Andrew was able to source some bespoke fixtures from America to complete the design to my requirements. I was kept updated frequently on progress throughout the offsite build process and installation was quick and very stress free. I would definitely recommend Carpenter and Carpenter for comparable projects and will be using them again in the future.
Mrs Hoff - London.
We used Andrew to build and install a cupboard in my daughters bedroom/nursery. Andrew was very informative about the plans from the start and kept me informed throughout each stage of the process. The cupboard looks great in the room and we would definitely use Andrew and his team again.
Mrs Donnelly - Chalkwell, Essex
We used Andrew Carpenter to design two shelving units to house a glass collection and tv and music system. Two very different requirements. Andrew listened very carefully to our ideas and came up with a design which was exactly what we wanted with a lot of great ideas on top. He kept us informed throughout the build sending us photographs as it progressed in his workshop. When he came to install the units, it all came together perfectly, reflecting all the thought and planning which had gone into the design and build. We will definitely use Carpenter and Carpenter again and would not hesitate to recommend him.
Mr Haffenden - Leigh-On-Sea, Essex.
Excellent service, excellent product. Very professional from the initial enquiry right up to installation. Very prompt responses to all my emails and phone calls, all appointments were on time and Andrew kept me informed of progress throughout the build stage. Andrew listened to my requirements and offered advice on how to achieve these, along with several design options to ensure I had one that would fit my budget. Even when my first option had to be changed and the whole positioning of the wardrobes was moved, a new design and quote was produced without any problems. Once the design was agreed I was given an accurate timescale for build and installation which was met. The attention to detail and build quality is evident in the finished product. I would not hesitate to recommend Carpenter and Carpenter to anyone who wants a quality piece of bespoke furniture, and will certainly be using them again.
Owl Design - Loughton, Essex
We worked alongside Carpenter and Carpenter for a styling project at Grand Designs live. They are a reliable company, with great design ideas and solutions. We used their Metafly console table which was crafted with great attention to detail. We hope to work with them again with further projects.
Ms Josephs - Finchley, London
I would highly recommend Andrew and his team. Andrew was able to interpret exactly what we wanted, took very detailed measurements and was able to anticipate any potential problems which were therefore able to deal with in advance. He made us beautiful contemporary wardrobe doors and fitted them painstakingly. He remained in contact with us throughout the project, letting us know where he was at with things and was very patient when we had to delay the fitting. I would definitely use Carpenter & Carpenter if you are looking for a joinery expert who goes the extra mile to get the job exactly right.
Maria McGettigan - London South East
On behalf of all at London South East, may I warmly thank you and Andy for the exemplary skill and carftsmanship so clearly applied by the results of our magnificient new furniture.
We are all delighted at the difference it has made to our environment; it has brought a very apparent gravitas to our reception area and has an incredibly professional impact with its impeccably matched grain and attractive lines; in essence, they are exquisite pieces of furniture and your hard work is sincerely appreciated.
Without hesitation, we would warmly recommend you to any prospective customer and we wish you every success, as you so richly deserve, going forward.
Ms Postma - Bow, London
Carpenter & Carpenter is a very professional service. We absolutely love our wardrobe and will be using him again for our second bedroom.
Mr Lauridsen - Maryland, USA
Andrew from Carpenter and Carpernter built a beautiful desk for me and and helped me navigate the transportation from the UK to the USA. The craftsmanship is superb and he did a wonderful job at keeping me updated on the progress of the desk. I plan to own the desk for the remainder of my life.
Ms Blake - Islington, London
Carpenter and Carpenter recently designed, built and installed a bookcase for me. It is made of solid laminated tulipwood, with overall dimensions 204cm (high) by 202cm (wide). It was designed carefully to fit a particular space, with shelving spaced at the foot to accommodate oversize books, and with adjustable shelving above. After the initial consultation detailed drawings were supplied, and I was able to approve them with no changes. The bookcase was partly assembled offsite, then brought over and installed with care. Adjustable feet enable it to sit correctly despite my sloping floor. I can wholeheartedly recommend Carpenter and Carpenter for their excellent workmanship, design skills, speed and reliability.
Mr Dodwell - Leigh On Sea, Essex
I used Carpenter & Carpenter to fit 2 Alcoves in my lounge. They provided a first rate service from start to finish with a finished product that I am very happy with.
Mr Goddard - Plumstead, London
Excellent and friendly service provided by Carpenter & Carpenter, during all stages of our project. From the initial home survey visit to the final installation, Carpenter & Carpenter offered us a warm and accommodating experience, creating beautiful and functional furniture. Very professional attitude in their work, we were also able to visit their workshop to see how our project was progressing, and were kept updated regularly. Would highly recommend Carpenter & Carpenter for custom furniture, and wouldn't hesitate to employ them again.
Mr & Mrs Cooper - Potters Bar, Hertfordshire
Carpenter & Carpenter designed and built 4 items of furniture for me over several months: a desk unit with cupboards above, a screen, a wall of shelves (library) and an oak seat/shoe cupboard. I am extremely happy with the quality and service provided and would certainly use them again and recommend them to others
Ms Toh - Gazelli Art House, London
We had a wonderful experience working with Andrew to design a bespoke desk for our Mayfair gallery. His attention-to-detail, professionalism, and perfectionism were evident throughout all the design stages; his knowledge and experience was accessible at all times throughout the project and this made for a very enjoyable working experience. It was designed with both aesthetic and practical considerations and the end result is elegant and functional. The desk has improved our reception area immensely. We have complete confidence in Carpenter & Carpenter and wouldn’t hesitate to work with them again in the near future.
Mrs Baker - Haslemere, Surrey
Andrew and his team have completed 5 projects; 3 freestanding items of furniture (a bedside unit, a set of wall shelves and a bifold futon base) which built on sketches given, an understair door which needed to match existing colour and design of other visible Victorian pine doors and the fifth involved interpreting a concept for a room (a 3 sided library with inbuilt media).In all five projects, Andrew's design expertise was crucial to each projects success- his advice and suggestions of material, finish, style features and proportion meant that each piece fulfilled both aesthetic and functional criteria. Attention to detail on inputs such as optimising heat efficiency through silver lining the radiator part of the library bookcases and finessing designs down the millimetre to ensure the bifold futon frame fitted exactly under a window sill and within a narrow space whilst maximising mattress dimensions was exactly why I wanted to find someone who could not only make but could also design. I would unreservedly recommend Andrew, and have done since he worked with us. I look forward to working with again in the future.
Mr Lissaman - Kenley, Surrey
We commissioned Andrew at Carpenter & Carpenter to make some bespoke furniture for our home in a style keeping with the period character of the property. This included two free standing dressers for our study, a media unit for the living room and a large storage unit for the hallway. Our specifications were accurately taken, and it was very helpful to have detailed drawings that we could review before finalising the designs. We have been extremely pleased with the finished items, which are beautifully made and really enhance our home. We will certainly look to use Carpenter & Carpenter again.
Mr Weeks - Brisbane, Australia
"Hi, some years ago, you constructed a 1800 by 800mm oak framed desk with MDF inlay ready to receive mosaic tiles on top.
You asked to be contacted with a photo when I completed the desk. Well, 2 divorces, 1 redundancy and an emigration to Oz later, here it is. The quality of your workmanship means the desk top is as good now as the first day and weathered transportation from the UK to Oz with no worries. Thanks guys".
Mr Davidson - Leigh-On-Sea, Essex
"With reference to your quotation and the advice your company provided on two built-in wardrobes in our loft extension. I would like to take this opportunity of thanking you and your staff for your friendly and professional service. I was extremely pleased with the quotation and I will be instructing the work to be carried out, at a later date. Your knowledge and expertise are to be commended and your pricing is very competitive. It would be my pleasure to be able to recommend your company and the services to any of your potential customers. Thank you again for a job very well done".
Dr Whitcombe - Chelmsford, Essex
"We received an excellent, professional service from initial contact to completion. Andrew expertly designed and installed floor to ceiling bookcases with a corner unit. We are extremely pleased with the result and would not hesitate to ask Andrew to design further bespoke furniture for us or to recommend him".
Mr Jobling - Docklands, London
"From start to finish I was very pleased with the work by Andrew and his team. The initial discussion was painless and we were able to talk through ideas and designs. The quote came promptly and it was accompanied by a very thorough description of the furniture. As worked progressed there were no issues in making design changes, adding/removing cost items (I added a sealant) and I was kept up-to-date with photos from the workshop. Installation was very smooth. Andrew and his team were very professional and tidy. Overall an outstanding job on what was a very customised project (solid oak curved desk, writing bureau and set of book shelves)".
Mr Silberston - Leigh-On-Sea, Essex
"Carpenter and Carpenter have just completed our second commission and we are delighted. The latest piece looks wonderful, is beautifully made and was fitted on time and on budget. The design process was interesting and Andrew worked hard to accommodate our very specific requirements. I would not hesitate in recommending them to others".
Mr Harvey & Ms Stafferton - Southend on Sea, Essex
“We have used Carpenter & Carpenter Ltd for a few commissions and each time they have come back with some great looking bespoke pieces. They produce excellently crafted items using quality materials with great attention to detail. We would thoroughly recommend them, particularly if you're looking for something unique to your requirements.”
Mr Williams - Earls Coln, Essex
"We commissioned Carpenter & Carpenter Ltd to produce a high quality fitted wardrobe in a period style with accent colour detailing. The service, furniture and installation was exactly as we had hoped. We now have a wardrobe that looks wonderful, is built to last and cleverly designed so that it can be refitted into a new location if we ever relocate. We are very happy clients."
Evening Standard - Kensington, London
“Can't recommend them highly enough. Got in touch quickly, came and did a quote within a couple of days and delivered the table within 3 weeks. Professional, friendly and a pleasure to work with. We needed a new middle section for our existing boardroom table, as it was such an old table and a fairly 'unique' style, we didn't think we'd get a very close match. They did a great job and the new section looks like its always been there.”
Mr & Mrs Lanstone - Cockfosters, Hertfordshire
“We commissioned Carpenter & Carpenter Ltd 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.”
Mrs Tivnann - Enfield, London
“Very professionally executed in all respects - meetings, paperwork, updates etc. End result was excellent - very pleased with the job. Would use Carpenter & Carpenter Ltd again.”
Mr McWilliam - Leigh-On-Sea, Essex
“Carpenter & Carpenter are very meticulous craftsmen and both design and build quality were excellent. I would recommend them to anyone needing good quality work.”
Mr & Mrs Sims - Maldon, Essex
“We were totally impressed with the handling of our bespoke wall to wall solid oak shelves and cupboards. From the initial quotation to the final result, they have been professional, knew exactly what we wanted, and supplied a product that is of absolutely superb quality. They are highly recommended and we will most certainly consider them for our next project.”
Mr & Mrs Ebahimi - Chelmsford, Essex
"Bookcases for our landing and a built-in cloaks cupboard in the study were designed, made and installed within a very reasonable timescale. The designs were exactly what we wanted and the items were good value for money. The finished products have greatly enhanced the two areas where they have been installed. We are extremely pleased with the work that has been carried out".
Mr Finch - Whetstone, London
"Fantastic job! I found them to be a company of very high standards. Not only was the finished shelving/workstation of the highest standard, but right from the initial email they were in full communication with me, emailing at least 5 or 6 drafts of technical drawings of the design (on which we worked together) over the period of the project with no complaints!"
Mrs Miller - Billericay, Essex
“Hi Andrew, our wardrobe looks fab thank you so much, we love it. Just need to sort out the rest of the room now! Thanks again for all your help".
Mr Holmes - Leigh On Sea, Essex
We requested 2 bespoke oak cabinets which from their design, build and installation fully met our expectation with a quality finish and excellent customer service. Also had 6 replacement oak cupboard doors to replace existing doors which was able to complement existing furnishings. From our brief outline design, Andrew was able to create the furnishings based on the provided original cost estimate and within the projected timeframe. I would recommend Andrew and his company as the price reflects the craftsmanship and customer service provided.
