How To Commission Bespoke Furniture
Primarily, my job is to work with clients to turn their ideas into something beautiful, of high quality and delivered on time. During the commissioning process I aim to communicate clearly and give frequent progress updates, therefore providing a design and make service exactly as a client has hoped for and expected.
If you have a project in mind you are welcome to enquire by telephone, email or by visiting the workshop.
However, in order to fully understand your requirements I suggest we arrange a meeting. We can then explore ideas and discuss practical issues such as location, materials, timescale and budget. This will be without fee or obligation.
The design stages
- I will create a design brief with you as a starting point for making initial sketches and gathering material samples. These will help highlight the design elements you feel are important and may present surprising ideas.
- From this information, sketches are evolved into solutions which I will present to you in the form of drawings or 3-D models.
- Once you are happy with a solution and material choice I will draw up the final design, costing and timescale for you to approve and to sign off.
On receipt of the deposit (50% of the agreed price) I will begin the careful selection of materials and assign workshop time.
At any point during the making process you are very welcome to visit the workshop and see your commission being built.
