From Initial Sketches to Installation; Here’s How We Bring Our Made to Measure Furniture to Life

Made to measure furniture creates a world of possibilities for your home. It’s perfect if you have a particular design or function in mind, or if you need your furniture to fit seamlessly into an unconventional layout. Creatively designed and meticulously crafted made to measure furniture looks effortlessly stylish – as though it’s part of the architecture of your home. So if you’re looking for a handmade library for your burgeoning book collection, a state-of-the-art home cinema system, a decadent dressing area, wall-to-wall wardrobes or a home office, the designers at Neville Johnson can help bring your ideas to life.

Bespoke – Where Style and Function Can Be Given Equal Weight

Whether you are redesigning your lounge, creating a home study, looking at libraries, or updating your bedrooms, you’ll find plenty of imaginative ideas at Neville Johnson, the pioneers of made to measure furniture for stylish living. To make sure that you have the exact furniture solution for your home, we recommend a design visit from a professional furniture designer. The benefits of having an expert assess your space and individual furniture requirements is that they are trained to see opportunities where others see challenges. A furniture designer knows how to breathe life into a room’s ‘dead zones’; they know how to create dual function furniture for rooms where space might be at a premium. They also know how to take advantage of quirky architectural features such as awkward alcoves, sloping ceilings or extra height ceilings and make these areas work for you. If you need inspiration or want to know if your ideas for storage solutions could actually work, an informal design visit could both excite and reassure you.

Design Sketches

During your design visit, the designer will present you with a number of made to measure furniture options for your room. You will also be able to select from a wide choice of high-quality materials, from beautiful veneers to the latest contemporary decor finishes and luxurious paint colours. Most reassuringly of all, every piece of your furniture comes with a 10-year guarantee to give you complete peace of mind.

Measured Spaces

When you’ve approved the initial design for your furniture, we will undertake a meticulous survey of the space where the furniture will be installed to ensure a millimetre-perfect fit. If your room is an unusual size, awkwardly shaped or has uneven walls, our surveyors will find a solution that will ensure a seamless end result.

Our CAD-designers make sure our craftsmen have the precise measurements they need to build your chosen design. At Neville Johnson, modern techniques work hand-in-hand with time-honoured skills to create furniture that’s so beautifully made it sets the standard in our industry.
