Robin Furlong: Tailored Furniture as Individual as his Clients
The Gallery and workshop are fascinating to behold with furniture in the making
You know that the fit is about more than the size, it is about an understanding of your requirements and wishes, the details, subtleties and form. You are looking for the expert to take your requirements, offer solutions and expand your ideas into a unique design that feels absolutely right and is a smile-raiser whenever it is viewed.
So it is with furniture by Robin Furlong and his team of highly skilled craftsmen
On hearing your requirements, years of experience and concepts swing into action, resolving practical and aesthetic questions with workable, elegant results.
Take for example the redundant inglenook fireplace, now fitted with an oak dresser offering storage cupboards, display shelves and featuring a parquetry back panel inspired by the client’s table top. Details from the house door panels and architraves were also incorporated.
Furlong Furniture created a truly unique kitchen with fitted and freestanding cabinets, made in walnut, oak and cherry wood, adding warmth and character to the room. Complementary handles in stainless steel, sliding tambour doors and a curved glass display cabinet completed the suite of furniture to wonderful effect, as seen on the website.
Many designs spring from previous commissions in the Furlong portfolio, enabling clients to talk through their ideas from a clear starting point and quickly developing into a design of their own. Dining tables are tailored to the shape and size of choice, many extending to suit larger numbers. Robin offers around ten chair designs so you are spoilt for choice, and the range of cabinets, studies, bedroom and occasional furniture is limitless.
The Gallery and workshop are fascinating to behold with furniture in the making, stacks of wood, craftsmen busily working and beautiful finished pieces on display. Do go and visit – highly recommended.
