How long will our project take?

Each project timescale will vary dependant on what the client needs to achieve. For example turning an old building into offices will take longer than fitting out 10,000 sq ft of a new office.

We also source some furniture from specialist contract furniture suppliers who we have worked with for long periods of time and built strong relationships with.

I don’t know what style I want – can you still help?

Yes, that’s what we are here for! Working with our interiors designer can help you focus on what kind of style is most suited to your business. We will have design concept meetings to discuss expectations and show you previous projects we have worked on. From this (if needed), a visual interpretation such as a mood board can be sent to the client accompanied by fabric swatches and wood samples to help you decide on the type of style you should choose.

Is any project too small?

We work with an array of different clients and consequently a range of different sized projects, from full refurbishments to just supplying commercial furniture. The size of the project does not affect our dedication to ensure the end product/finished result is right for you.

I'm thinking of opening a new premises or undergoing a refurb, at what point should I contact you?
