Commissioning A Unique Piece


By commissioning a designer/maker to produce a piece, you are asking them to design and make something that fits your needs as exactly as possible, both visually and practically. You may have looked elsewhere and been unable to find something that will work for you, or you may have seen the designer/maker’s work and want something produced for you in their style.

The commissioning process can be an enjoyable and fulfilling experience as you work with your chosen designer/maker at every stage of the project, allowing you to see your piece grow and take shape whilst ensuring that you get exactly what you want when the piece is completed.

Whether you have a good idea of what it is that you’re wanting to achieve or just know you would like ‘something’ to go in a particular space your chosen designer/maker will work with you and guide you through the process from the drawing board to the final installation making the whole process extremely personal and helping you to understand the complexities of crafting a one off, bespoke piece of furniture.
