Share your Ideas and I'll make them happen
My Dad brought me up with a love of fine furniture. He is the inspiration of Forest Furniture, the Company I started, born out of making innovative wooden products for modern living.
My early memories, watching him upholster Chippendale chairs, listening to the rhythmic sound of his treadle Singer sewing machine and the smell of freshly machined timber, Shellac and Turpentine coming from his workshop, has stayed with me to this day.
As a younger man, I spent many years working in the Service Industry. But I always harboured a desire, using the skills he taught me, to create handmade, beautiful furniture.
From the beginning, I wanted to provide a 'complete' service to clients. Mastering the Design, Manufacturing, Finishing and Installation process. Many of my skills have been self taught. But to challenge myself, I decided to returned to College, and be judged by my peers, and I was awarded a Diploma from The City and Guilds Institute.
In 2002, I was chatting with a Designer friend, she asked me to make furniture for her home. From those modest beginnings, providing hand crafted bespoke wooden furniture to just a few private and professional clients, my business has grown through word of mouth, and I have built a reputation as a reliable, innovative creator, for both home and work spaces.
All of my work is truly 'bespoke'. "The devil is in the detail" and my attention to the detail, is second to none. By working with you, I will listen to what you have in mind and then suggest a few different ways to make that happen. I will create drawings and provide all the samples you will need to reassure you that you are making the right choices and are on the right track.
For me, Customer Service is as important as the finished furniture. I take the time to work closely with all of my clients at the early stages of their projects, to make sure there are no surprises further down the line. It's an old tradesman's saying, "Measure twice, cut once". And I will keep you well informed of progress and time scales throughout the process.
So if you are thinking about changing the space you live or work in, get in touch. I will show you how to find the space you never knew you had, or create a dream kitchen that will become the heart of your home.

"We were introduced to Steve (Forest Furniture) well over 2 years ago after moving into our new home - during this time he has undertaken 4 personally bespoke and challenging projects. He has given valuable input in size and design as well as providing workmanship that is second to none from start to finish. He works with professionalism, calm and consideration, the end result being that we have pieces of furniture that we know have been made by someone who has a talent
at what they do and who gets as much joy from the finished product as we do. We would not hesitate in recommending Steve to future clients""

""Steve is a true craftsman, his attention to detail is second to none, and I recommend him highly.
The recent bespoke kitchen he has completed for my client is beautiful, practical and elegant. Steve went the extra mile to ensure they were happy with all the cabinets and large island unit with its stunning Walnut worktop.""

""Steve made fitted wardrobes, shelves and desks for our children's bedroom. He really listened to what we needed and more than met the brief. We are really delighted with the result. Steve is a totally brilliant craftsman and we cannot recommend him highly enough.""
Mrs Elizabeth Dudley Jones, Alderely Edge on 24 April 2016
""After looking for years for bedroom wardrobes I despaired at the designs and quality of workmanship available on the market, not to mention the cost. On recommendation I contacted Steve of Forest Furniture. From the outset Steve understood the brief, spent considerable time consulting with me after which he delivered a choice of intricately detailed designs. I was very impressed with his interpretation and design ideas. After agreeing the final concept Steve crafted the most stunning wardrobes out of American Black Walnut and Titanium inlay which are commented upon and praised by everyone who has seen them. Unparalleled design and artisan craftsmanship. He delivered on time and within budget. I couldn't be more pleased and recommend Steve without hesitation for anyone seeking that something different - furniture that is not only beautiful and functional, but also exemplifies the best in British craftsmanship.""
