Design Service

“I love seeing the transformation from drawings to a beautifully executed piece of furniture”
Jonathan Sainsbury

We are in an unrivalled position of being able to draw upon five generations of expertise in antiques and furniture making. Our heritage, together with our team of trusted and skilled designers, makers and finishers means that we can exceed our clients’ expectations.

No project is too large or too small and we relish every challenge. Our commissions range from the creation of an entire house scheme to a single mirror, from specialist interior work on super yachts to show stopping pieces for film sets. We have had the privilege of designing furniture for some of the finest houses in the country including English Heritage and National Trust properties and the Soane Museum. Wherever possible we use sustainably sourced materials.

You may require an exact copy of a particular piece or simply have the glimmer of an idea.
Anything can act as a starting point for further discussion, and we take huge pride in transforming an initial sketch to a finished piece and helping our clients achieve their dream.

I’ve found dealing with Jonathan Sainsbury a very agreeable and rewarding experience. He works with you, taking on board your suggestions to make something authentic and real
which is what the client wants and also pleases the designer.
