The Birthplace

In a small factory, set in the Hampshire countryside, a small team of craftsmen, built up over a number of years, make each piece of furniture, from the finest materials.

“Raw Material: Basic substance in its natural, modified, or semi-processed state, used as an input to a production process for subsequent modification or transformation into a finished product”

The finest quality, graded timber, ethically sourced, awaits selection. Tulip wood is commonly used due to its knot free composition and stability

Once the best piece of timber has been chosen, it is planed down to the correct width and thickness. These dimensions can be selected to very fine tolerances

Now cut to the correct width and thickness, components are made from a comprehensive cutting list

Cupboards and drawers are made using mortice and tenon joints, for strength and durability. German drawer runners routed into the underside of the drawers

Fitting hinges the traditional way. Each stage of manufacture is done by hand to ensure absolute quality

All the components are assembled before they are moved into the assembly area

Whatever the type of unit, they are all made at the factory. All integrated appliances are “dry-fitted” prior to finishing.

Fitting in your home is carried out by professional cabinetmakers, so the skillset is carried right through the process.

If you have chosen a painted finish, then the furniture is primed, undercoated and given a first coat of colour in the factory. Our decorator then finishes the units on site, which gives the best possible finish.

Worktops are templated and fitted, draining grooves made, sinks set, by our stonemasons. Solid wooden tops are also available.
