Buy British Day press breakfast at the house of commons

We were invited to the Buy British press launch at the house of commons on Tuesday.

As we were there, we couldn't resist a cheeky photograph of our coat stand just outside Big Ben!

The panel consisted of: Wayne Hemingway MBE, Timothy Everest MBE, William Church (MD of Cheaney), Will Butler-Adams (MD of Brompton), Cressida Granger (MD of Mathmos) and a representative from the UKTI.

Some very interesting points were raised and it got us thinking about how important it is to continue making everything by hand here in Nottinghamshire.

We will be exhibiting at the Best of Britannia show on the 2 / 3 / 4 of October 2014 held in the beautiful Farmiloe Building in Clerkenwell.

Fitted bedroom

Late last year we took on the brief to design the furniture for a large bedroom. They needed maximum storage room and wanted to compliment the interesting architecture of their house.

In response to this, we set out designing two full length, full height fitted wardrobes made from ash and walnut. We also designed and made a TV cabinet and a set of drawers with dovetail joints. The units have shelves, hanging rails, top cupboards and even a mirror room hidden inside the main cabinet. We all pulled together, worked hard (often into the night) and completed the job in time for their tight deadline.

We are delighted with how it turned out!
