Can you make bespoke furniture to my specified sizes?
All our Authentic furniture is handmade to order by our artisan joiners and craftsmen. This allows us the opportunity to allow for changes to be made to existing products or for us to make you something entirely bespoke.
So, if its a table a specific length, a cabinet to fit an alcove, an extra large sofa for a massive room or even a brand new design made in our style then we’re more than happy to help. In fact sometimes its actually our customers that suggest the best new designs and they end up in the range!
New designs have to be quoted from scratch and changes to existing pieces are generally subject to a 10-20% increase in price.
For more information or to get a price please contact our team by either calling 01629 704 704 or emailing in to firstname.lastname@example.org.
