About Our Company & History
Commissioning a Piece of Furniture
Design – Assured Fine Furniture visits all clients to take accurate details of what is required, believing that the design process is one of intimate collaboration between the manufacturer and the client. Developing and changing ideas including wood choices and finishes is a very exciting part of the design process.
Materials – All furniture is hand-crafted using the finest woods available, originating from sustainable managed woodlands throughout the world.
Mechanics – The way the furniture looks plays a big part, but the way it moves is just as important, the way drawers slide like silk, and the way the doors open without binding. This can only be achieved by skilful use of hand tools.
Finish – Every time a piece of furniture is delivered, the first thing each client does is touch it. There’s something about the wood which makes people want to feel it and it is this feel that communicates the care and attention that went into every step of its creation.
Antique Repair and Restoration – As can be seen from the side gallery, Assured Fine Furniture restored an Edwardian Open Arm Sofa which was rescued from a skip, re-upholstering it traditionally and giving a stunning French polish.
Carving, Turning, Veneering, Gilding, Upholstery, French Polishing are all the skills undertaken in the Assured Fine Furniture workshop.
