Cabinet Makers & Finishers

Soane Britain’s wooden furniture designs are made by a family business that has perfected cabinetry skills across generations. Soane’s made to order designs, including tables, cabinets and chests of drawers, are all hand made with high-grade woods and veneers selected for best effect in each piece. Some designs are particularly challenging, such as The Tambour Cabinet with sliding tambour doors that today only a few craftsmen can produce. The workshop is able to adapt Soane designs to suit a client’s specific requirements, for example creating bespoke interiors for specialised storage, or making entirely Bespoke pieces.

Several specialist finishers are employed by Soane Britain to achieve the best results possible. Of particular note are the traditional French Polishers that work methodically building up layers of polish that give great depth to pieces such as The Quiver Klismos Chair. Other finishes include painting and lacquering with multiple applications for a rich and hard-wearing gloss finish.
