Storage under the stairs.
Customer Service
This is the second time we have used the company. We were very happy with the wardrobes Neal put in first. The under stairs storage Neal put in was a tricky job involving cupboards and drawers on two fronts. Neal was very helpful in discussion at the design stage and It was a precision job excellently executed. We are very happy customers.

Furnish & Co - Masterclass from a master-carpenter, master craftsman
Customer Service
Neil from Furnish & Co is a master-carpenter, a master-craftsman. He offered a trusted-trader masterclass in designing and delivering our fitted bedroom wardrobes. We had a concept idea of what we wanted. Neil was able, through his skill experience, to coach and coax preferred detailing from us. Neil offered a range of woods, veneers, paints and finishes. He worked with care and precision, ably supported by his protégé. We found the whole person-centred experience very satisfying. Oh, and we absolutely love the finished product! Trevor & Sue

Exceptionally high standard of workmanship
We called Neal Lewer of Furnish & Co, a recommendation when we were talking about renewing 2 sideboards. We started off getting to know Neal and how he works, we had no plan as to design or wood so after a few meetings we knew Neal was ready to start on our projects. Little did we know/envisage that when the 2 sideboards and a pod for between our chairs were delivered the satisfaction and appreciation we felt for all the hours of planning, craftsmanship & expertise that had been invested in the pieces. Each piece is very different and exquisite. Neal and Helen have been a pleasure to communicate with, friendly and professional, always being in touch with any queries. THANK YOU so much.

It was truly a pleasure to create two sideboards that were so unique. All the effort and hard work that went into these special pieces were worth every moment to receive your wonderful comments, our small team at Furnish & Co will be over the moon with your review. Thank you, we appreciate your feedback and hope to work with you again in the future.
Alcove cabinets and shelves for log storage and TV stand
Customer Service
We are absolutely thrilled with the service provided by Furnish and co. A pleasure to deal with, and the end product even better than we’d envisaged. Neal and Helen kept us informed throughout, no delays and completed the installment whilst we were away, so we came back to see the cabinets in situ and couldn’t have been happier. Would definitely use the company again, and can give nothing but 5 stars all round.

5 Star treatment from start to finish
Customer Service
Dealing with Neal and Helen at Furnish & Co has been a pleasure from start to finish, nothing was too much trouble and they actually called me to advise that they would be a day late in starting as they were waiting for some doors to arrive. We had contacted a rival whose estimate was a couple of hundred of pounds cheaper however we decided to go with Furnish & Co as we had little faith in the other company. We are so happy and impressed with our fitted bedroom that once again it's proven you get what you pay for. Furnish & Co are definitely the Ronseal of the fitted furniture world and deliver what they promise.

We contacted Furnish and Co to help us with a re make of some kitchen components.
We were amazed at the quality of workmanship on some remakes of old warped kitchen doors and drawer fronts. we have since had some doors that needed remoulding, what a great service, we were kept informed of time scale, cost, materials used ect, Very happy with every aspect of these jobs completed.

Thank you Mac for taking the time to write a review. Its very important to all of us here that you are 100% confident with your design before we begin fabrication. Sometimes it takes a while to let the changes happen naturally. I hope we can be of service again in the future, until then "keep exploring"

He has an eye for detail & seems to understand exactly what we want. He has a good team of electricians, plumbers & painters. Neal & his team are extremely trustworthy,very reliable, clean & tidy workers, also friendly. We cannot praise him enough.

Customer Service
From initial contact with Helen and then Neal the whole experience was impeccable. I wanted some fitted wardrobes and had had visits from 3 of the large chains with various degrees of interest or hard sell from the salespersons. Neal and his team were a breath of fresh air and a pleasure to deal with from initial consultation, design and installation. I can’t recommend highly enough.

Amazing Workmanship
Customer Service
I commissioned Neal at Furnish & Co to make a large bespoke coffee table for my son, who had just moved into his first property. This table was based on a coffee table I owned. The end result was more than we could ever have hoped for... This table was truly a work of art, my son and I were 'blown away' by the attention to detail, which was wholly impressive and the dedication that was instilled in this table, one could tell,was made with love. I was so impressed by this table I asked Neal to make me three bookcases. Two for my living room and one for my bedroom, yet again, I was overwhelmed by the look of the bookcases, the work that has gone into making them and the beauty of the bookcases, they fitted into their respective places and looked incredible... The furniture that Neal and his team make could NEVER ever be bettered. That not withstanding, Neal and his team were patient when taking these commissions and made quite a few visits to make sure they were getting everything right. They are a cheerful, professional team and I cannot recommend them enough. I know these pieces of furniture will be around for future generations to come. Which is a testament in itself. Thank you, Neal and your team, next time I need a piece of furniture you and your team are the only people I shall contact...

Thank you for your glowing review! Creating the bespoke coffee table was a pleasure for the team as it’s not something we often fabricate and made a change to the norm. The bookcases were also a little different as we do try to put our personal touch to the furniture. To hear that we exceeded your expectations is wonderful news. We hope to be of service to you again soon.
