How to Commission The Goods

"Why be formal when you can be fabulously feral. Why be conventional when you can be happy?"

--Simon Doonan

So it looks like you're thinking about transforming and creating a bespoke, one-of-a-kind piece of furniture. You've popped onto the right page.  Here are some things to think about:

  • Do you currently have a piece in mind?
    • Maybe your Nan has 'the one' you've been lusting over since you were a child? Or there's something in storage that could really be cool if only...
  • No piece?
    • That's okay...I can help you source what you're looking for. Be sure to check out the next bullet if this is the case.
    • Have you checked out my current hoard of naked furniture?
  • What's your timescale?
    • Need it yesterday? I'm good but noone is THAT good.
    • Commissions take time, sometimes up to 8 weeks.
    • Sourcing can take a day (buy a lottery ticket too!) or a week but more often than not, it can take months. Patience is a virtue right?
  • What can be transformed?
    • Just about anything you might fancy. Our imaginations are the only thing holding us back in this department.
  • What are the costs involved?
    • This ultimately depends on the piece, it's condition, how I can get my hands on it (pick-up/delivery/courier), the completion date you'd like, the materials required & requested and the overall design.
    • Generally the commissions on small pieces I've done start from £150 and go up from there.
      • Don't let that put you off...get in touch and let's have a chat!
Be brave
