There’s a reason why we need your
dining table furniture order in by September

With our furniture being bespoke and handmade, the creating process takes slightly longer than if you buy from the high street.  

There are many processes which our tables go through before being delivered to your door, and we want to make sure you avoid any disappointment and have your dining table with you by the festive period. 

Christmas is only around the corner so why not get in touch and make sure you have the perfect family dining table to celebrate around after a not so normal Christmas last year! 

What are the processes you will go through to get your custom-made piece of furniture?

1. The initial meeting. 

 When you have a brief idea of what kind of dining table you want making, a meeting can be arranged face-to-face to discuss further or alternatively, you can use the custom furniture tool on our website. The rest of your custom-made furniture journey will be much like Charlies:

2. Consultation and Design process. 

Charlie and Rob loved the design of a reclaimed wood table that was on display but it was too big for them and they wanted a different design on the top. They also loved the design of the bench but wanted different coloured fabrics and a different size. First of all, we spend time with all clients asking questions through the process, so we understand exactly what you are looking for. This includes size, design, wood finish, style, who’s going to be using it and the size of the room the furniture will be going in. 

For anything with fabric, we similarly discuss function, use, texture and colour, so we give you something that is both stylish and practical. You can find out more about fabrics on our Fabric Blogs here. Along with the table and bench for Charlie and Rob, we also restored two existing dining chairs to complete the look. Once we understand the full detail of the design, we provide a written quotation and the estimated time of completion. Although each quote is unique to each client, most projects take approximately 10-12 weeks. 

Following acceptance of the quote, a 50% deposit is taken and as a result, the estimated work schedule provided. 

3. The building begins. 

 Each piece of our furniture is handmade and designed from our converted chapel workshop by Dad & I. This is where the fun begins, and your furniture starts to come to life. We order materials for the specific commission. We order any bespoke steel frame for tables and seating from Aclumlow Hall Forge. Dad starts work on the table and chair/bench frame, and the upholstery work follows. 

 We keep in close contact with clients giving you updates whilst the furniture is being built, and updates on completion. In Charlie and Rob’s case, they didn’t have a confirmed moving in date when we first started the commission, so we kept in close contact throughout. On request, we can send you pictures and videos of new developments. 

4. Sit back and let us do the rest! 

 Before Charlie and Rob knew it, they moved into their new home as a result, their furniture soon followed. So, they were in just in time for Christmas; and they hosted their first Christmas dinner on their new reclaimed wood table, bench and chairs.  They left us a lovely review. 

“So glad we visited an event that Emma was hosting. Immediately fell in love with all of the pieces and we are so happy to have our own set commissioned and made for us. Brilliant service from start to finish. Would highly recommend for pieces that add that wow factor and excellent service…We love it and will certainly be back again“
