Commission

Sometimes a specific lifestyle or home calls for a specific piece of furniture. This is where Nick really comes into his own. Whether it’s providing the ultimate centrepiece for your home or business or producing a unique table or cabinet for a hall or corridor where space is of a premium, Nick loves a challenge. Commissioning furniture is not as expensive as you might think. The costs can vary considerably depending on the type of wood used to make the piece.

Every piece Nick makes is dated and branded with his makers mark.

Commissioning a piece of furniture can be an exciting and rewarding process. You will be involved at every stage.

1. The Brief
The process usually begins with a meeting where all the important details are discussed such as the purpose of the piece, the style and the surroundings, the materials, the budget and deadline. A brief will then be drawn up and agreed.

2. The Design
Nick will show you two or three designs in the form of hand sketches, perspective drawings or three dimensional computer models. This is just the start of the conversation. Nick then fine-tunes these for you to get the design exactly right.

3. The Order
A measured drawing will be prepared ready for you to sign off. A deposit of 50% is now payable. Once this has been received work can begin. You are welcome to visit the workshop and see the piece as it develops. When it’s finished arrangements are made for delivery at which stage the balance of payment is due.

4. Aftercare
This furniture will last many lifetimes. Nick will advise you how to look after it so you can pass it on to future generations.
