Business Summary:
Joiner/Manufacturer of Own Brand, English Oak Furniture and Timber MerchantRef. GE094Location : South EastAsking Price : Offer InvitedThis business is a specialist manufacturer of the finest English Oak reproduction furniture as well as offering joinery services and trading in timber materials.First established in the ‘70’s the business makes real furniture – built by hand using fine timbers that age beautifully. The collection is a range of standard pieces that includes many of the classic 16th, 17th & 18th century English Oak designs with many of these traditional pieces adapted for use in contemporary living environments. Manufacturing predominately in wood the business also crafts furniture in English Cherry, Walnut and Yew.This business’s extensive collection of furniture includes over 350 designs in all including chairs, tables, cabinets, occasional pieces and bedroom furniture – with many variations available to suit customers’ preferences. This business also offers a complete bespoke service with pieces made uniquely to customer specification.The business employs a team of skilled craftsmen and has earned an enviable reputation both in the UK and abroad, working with original techniques used by English Cabinet Makers. The timber used is air seasoned and then kiln dried. The hand-finished pieces are fully distressed and coloured to simulate the warmth and character of genuine antiques. Many of these superb pieces will undoubtedly become heirlooms of the future – passed down from one generation to another. As well as finished pieces this business also offers furniture that has not been given the ageing treatment, leaving it with just the edges smoothed and then polished or left unpolished as natural wood or with an oiled finish.Not surprisingly, for a business of this quality its product is in high demand from private individuals and also architects, specifiers and interior designers purchasing for clients.Along with its core trading the business also undertakes specialist period architectural joinery, working closely with architects, specifiers and builders as an oak specialist timber merchant. Fresh sawn, air or kiln dried the timber is in demand for many purposes, such as flooring and beams for architectural joinery and restoration work.This is a great opportunity to acquire one of Britain’s best-known English oak reproduction furniture companies – and a name synonymous with quality furniture manufacture throughout the world.
