Where Guild Anderson has stood apart since the company was founded is in the breadth and diversity of our cabinetry commissions. Every piece of fitted or free-standing furniture is made in our Wiltshire workshop from scratch and tailored for each client, while the skills of Guild Anderson's designers and craftsmen are recognised as much by clients as by professional colleagues. Our team is fundamental to who we are.
Our mission is simple: we are passionate about designing furniture that is practical and easy to use and also looks fabulous. This applies to every kitchen, boot room, dressing room, study or table that we make. Quality, service - and above all, happy customers - mean a great deal to us.
Clients often ask what the difference is between us and bigger industry names and I suppose it is a mix of many things: quality of design and construction, service, price, our very personal approach and the fact that every piece I design is a reflection of that individual person and their home.
Guild Anderson Furniture celebrate their fourteenth anniversary this year. Launched in 2003 by Nick and Hannah Anderson, this story is one of British entrepreneurial success. Founded in parallel with bringing up their young family, Guild Anderson started out like many business ventures in small premises on the family farm. Today, the company is a busy workshop of craftsmen and designers based on the Fonthill Estate in Wiltshire.
Nick remains personally involved in every project, meeting new customers and interpreting hopes and wishes into final designs. His energy and positive nature is one of the secrets behind Guild Anderson’s success. As an independent business, the workshop remains light on its feet and responds well to client requests and ideas as projects progress. Described by clients as ‘a hidden gem’, the workshop evidently strikes the right balance on quality, price and understated but elegant design work.
The company takes great care of the services it provides and is understandably proud that 80% of new projects are introduced through personal recommendation. Customer referrals credit Guild Anderson’s excellent communications and well-organised team of designers and craftsmen.
It is thanks to British-based production control – no off-the-shelf carcasses or standardised units shipped from China here – that the company has fulfilled a remarkable diversity of original furniture projects for customers, from the contemporary to the traditional.
Designing bespoke furniture for clients, to be enjoyed by their family and friends over many years to come, is quite simply what Guild Anderson is about.
