What does Bespoke Really Mean?
Bespoke for us, means a blank sheet of paper and an open mind.
Unlike most other makers, we do not base our furniture on a standard range of designs. Every cabinet and every door is custom made in our workshop to suit your exact requirements. Working this way means we are totally free to build your furniture to whatever shape, size or design you require.
Bespoke for us, also means collaboration. Commissioning bespoke furniture works best if there is a sense of shared vision and good communication between client, designer and maker. The clients are investing their time, money and hopes in a piece of furniture that has never been made before. The designer has to respond to that trust and to be sensitive and perceptive to the client’s needs, aspirations and tastes as well as considering the final location of the furniture. The maker has to realise the design and with long years of experience, understanding of timber and patient workmanship, bring the design to life.
At Cairntradlin, we have five very skilled and experienced cabinetmakers. We have a very well equipped workshop and we have a huge stock of fabulous locally grown hardwoods. We relish a challenge and we value the opportunity to create objects of integrity using hard earned skills and high quality materials.
Compared with clicking the "buy it now" box on a furniture retail website, the process of commissioning a bespoke piece of furniture from Lethenty Cabinetmakers is a bit more involved - and a lot more rewarding.
Bespoke for us, means a great deal.
