When Martin Moore chiselled out the first dovetail joint of his very first piece of furniture he, perhaps, wasn't aware he was founding one of the original English companies dedicated to producing hand crafted timber kitchens.
It was 1975, and the kitchen market was dominated by modern German and Italian styles. Martin, a design engineer, and his wife Barbara had just returned to England from their extensive travels around the world. Having bought an old Victorian house in need of much renovation Martin set to work designing and making furniture that was perfect for their house and family life.
Good things grow, and before long the couple had turned their passion for furniture into a thriving business. Their appreciation of traditionally built British housing stock and empathy for the quintessential English lifestyle, resulted in designs that were perfectly suited to Georgian, Victorian and Edwardian homes.
Over forty two years later and we’re still a family business, with Richard and Michael Moore joining their parents at the helm. We’re proud that many of our loyal workforce – designers, cabinet makers, installation managers, fitters and painters alike – have been with us for decades. Each one takes an enormous pride in their work. People have come to know us for the quality of our materials, the reputation we've built since 1975, and our deep respect and passion for technical and aesthetic excellence. Put simply, our craftsmanship and service.
All our furniture designs for the kitchen and around the home are inspired by the classic styles of the English furniture heritage. However in our workshop we've happily embraced computer-controlled technology and modern production methods along with traditional cabinet making skills.
Quality and expertise aside, it’s our excellent service and the relationships we foster that make our company dramatically different.
During the design process we’ll listen to your requirements, take on board your ideas, offer advice and guide you through the exciting process of creating your dream kitchen.
Once your design has been finalised your dedicated installation manager will be on-hand to answer any questions and liaise with any additional contractors.
Most kitchens are installed within one week, including worktops, with painting taking a further week once the appliances have been connected.
We make sure that everyone who steps into your home is trained, admired and liked by us, and that their standard of work will meet both your and our high expectations.
