What Steve’s clients say…
"I would like to say once again that Trish and I are delighted with the furniture. Several friends have seen it already and everyone is blown away by the timber and the craftsmanship. I am very glad I found you on my web search. Every time I walk in the room I look at it and a big smile comes on my face. Coming away from our visit to your showroom I had a feeling that we had found the source of exactly what I was hoping for. Now the furniture is in place it significantly exceeds my already high expectations. I could not be a happier customer."

Nick Tidman

Cheddar, Somerset

"Just wanted to let you know that the table is now part of the family, much admired by all who visit and absolutely loved by its owners! It seems as if it’s always been ours and I still have to stop Tony from hugging it in front of guests! So thank you so much for all the skill, love and care that you put into it. We couldn’t be more pleased."

Jane Linden

Bramley, Hampshire

“We often think of you when we’re sat around our new dining table with family and friends. How fortunate that you were recommended to us. It was rather disheartening trawling around the shops being either uninspired or taken aback at the cost of the tables that were closer to what we were looking for. Your passion and knowledge gave us both the confidence to take the plunge and go down the custom route. When we first started looking we would never have thought that we could have such a fabulous, unique table at the price of many mass produced tables. Thank you so much.”

Clive Davies

Richmond, London

“I had to write to say thank you so much for delivering our beautiful table to us just in time for all the visitors. It has exactly the character and charm that we were looking for and is just such a pleasure to use. I can’t tell you how wonderful it was for us all to sit round it at Christmas. Mike and I took pride of place at either end in our new chairs. The bench was just perfect for squeezing in all the grandchildren. It felt like a perfect way to welcome the table into the family and there are already hints about who would like to inherit it in the future!”

Trudy Jones

Christchurch, Dorset

“We are loving our table! It’s everything that we’d hoped for and more. The pippy oak is just beautiful. I can’t stop looking at it – and giving it a friendly stroke! It’s only been a few weeks but already it’s been used in so many different ways. We’ve gone on a socialising spree and have had family and friends round. It’s so nice not hitting our knees or banging our feet all the time like previously. I’ve brought out my sewing machine and made cushions. As well as spending a lot of time sitting at it with my laptop. I hadn’t realised what a difference it makes working at a wooden table rather than a laminate one. It’s a whole different world! I’m already trying to find reasons for us to come back to you to commission more furniture for the house.”

Leila Ouali

Sparsholt, Hampshire

“A quick note to say thank you so much for our new table and for all your help. Being able to speak with you right from the start made such a difference. When I first started looking for a table, I wouldn’t have imagined that we could end up with one that’s handmade in solid wood and yet that looks so fresh and modern. We’ve so enjoyed designing our table with you and having the freedom to choose exactly what we want that we can’t stop spreading the word. Friends are really impressed and also surprised when they find out how reasonable it was. I’m sure you’ll be getting more orders … and what’s so nice is that regardless, no one else will end up with a table quite like ours.”

Gemma Attersley

Battersea Rise, London

“It makes me so happy to at last have the table that I’ve always wanted. I’d really begun to think it would never happen and I’d have to settle for second best. I hadn’t realised how hard it would be to find a well-made, traditional looking round pedestal table. I thought it was something that would never be out of fashion. Thank you so much for all your help and guidance on the sizing and making the most of the space available. I’m now saving up for the chairs and will be in touch again soon."

Sally-Ann Meyers

Winchester, Hampshire

“Thank you for all your time, patience and advice when it came to choosing the right table for us. It made such a difference that we were able to make it a family experience and to include a couple of special details chosen by the boys. When friends and family are round and see the table for the first time, they very proudly point out their contributions. The way Max talks about it you’d think he’d designed and then made the table himself. Who knows, maybe we have a carpenter in the making. I’ll have to let you know in 10 years time.”

Nick Bentley

Stockbridge, Hampshire

"We have had our first meal around the table. Such a pleasure! The table is beautifully crafted. Thank you for interpreting exactly what we wanted. Thanks also to the chaps who came. They were brilliant."

Susan Payne

Lincoln, Lincolnshire

"We are delighted with the two new tables; they look terrific and really finish off the room well. Thanks also to Callum for easing the drawers in the sideboard, they now glide beautifully. We talked to Callum about the possibility of your making some bedside cabinets for us in the New Year. We have a limited amount of space and can't find anything that would fit at the moment ... Happy Christmas to you and Callum and thanks again for two more stunning pieces of furniture."

Rosemary Heasman

Fleet, Hampshire

"We got back from London last night and the first thing we did was race in to see our tables - stunning!!! James and I are really thrilled - they look beautiful and fit perfectly in the room. As you say the table - in fact both - have lots of interest and are just the right tone. We love the table legs echoing our beams, and the console is the perfect balance of contemporary and oriental to tie in with our Chinese chest. Will send you some photos. Next to arrive is the rug and then the finishing touches of lamps and artwork! All very exciting."

Rebecca Cundall

York, Yorkshire

"Thank you so much for our wonderful table, which has so much character, and the fantastic sideboard - they fit perfectly in the space and look absolutely beautiful and thank you also for your guidance when we were deciding on exactly what we wanted. It was pure luck we happened across your showroom and how lucky we were. We are utterly delighted with the outcome! Please also pass our thanks onto the guys who delivered the furniture - they were great."
