When something is well made, the design, construction and finish speak volumes. A piece of furniture commissioned specifically for a room, like a table or dresser, is not only unique but a piece of history in the making.
Guild Anderson specialise in making furniture for country houses. With roots planted in bespoke kitchen design, the breadth of skills in the workshop has expanded over the years. The company offer tailored cabinetry services for any room of a house, from the kitchen, to the utility, playroom, study, office – or even a home cinema or library. Guild Anderson has retained its reputation for a high standard of personal customer service. Clients comment on the design team’s flexibility and support through planning approval and frequently changing renovation deadlines.
Owner and designer, Nick Anderson, describes how he believes the firm make a difference to the challenges of carrying out building works, particularly in older houses. ‘A great deal of care is taken in the planning stages. We design by working hand-in-hand with architects and other professional services involved in a project. More importantly,’ Nick continues, ‘we believe in planning completion times well in advance so that new cabinetry is never fitted or painted until the last moment, to avoid builder’s dust or final electrical and plumbing services’.
Where Guild Anderson stand apart is in the detail. Emphasis is placed on precision and communication at every step of the project, from design development to making each piece of furniture in the workshop, and finishing with fitting and painting experts.
Guild Anderson also help select, order, take delivery and install new appliances. The design team work with clients to choose paint colours, soft furnishings and worksurfaces, as well as fixtures and fittings such as taps and handles. This 360’ approach speaks for itself in a beautifully finished home.
Based in their Wiltshire, Dorset and Hampshire heartland, Guild Anderson’s expertise today is recognised as one of the leading independent furniture designers in the south west of England.
