A little about west Country Furniture
Back in 1982 we spotted a charming old Victorian residence
with a shop in one corner with display windows on Abington Avenue and
Abington Grove. It had two reception rooms and a bathroom to the rear.
We converted the bathroom to an office and the reception rooms were
ideal for display, we even light a fire in the lovely old fireplace
on cold winter days. Still no central heating !.
We branched out into oak, ash and painted furniture and our forte is our make-to-measure service. Our reclaimed pine is second to none as only the weathered, character timbers are used on the exposed faces. Sadly, most makers of reclaimed furniture destroy the character by sawing the wood into planks and making from the freshly sawn timbers....you may as well use new wood !
One problem for us is that our products last too long....we wish they would need replacing after a few years like a car or a TV ! After 20 years you are still coming in for a tin of wax saying "it`s as good as the day you delivered it". Thank goodness your children are coming in now and buying from us ! Luckily,you don`t normally take your kitchen with you when you move so many of you have had 2 or 3 kitchens from us.Two customers, however, have taken their kitchens to their new homes and we have re-installed them with a few modifications...how mean can you be ?
Our reputation is our strength...we have literally thousands of references and there's one thing that we know everybody will confirm.......we care about our products and just as much about our customers. We know that the day you stop coming in our door then our days are numbered. You have lots of choice of places to shop and we never forget that.
One thing we have to admit ....We`re not cheap. If you`re working on a limited budget then some customers collect our furniture piece by piece rather than buying a room full. Our products rarely change and matching is usually easy. We are,however, value for money...you only buy it once and it will outlast any "ordinary" furniture. On the other hand,quite a number of customers have said "we didn`t try here before because we thought you were too expensive but we are pleasantly suprised" . We have a motto....... "pay a little more.......have the best".
