I just bought a flat. Well, I did in November, and it’s still sinking in.
Luckily for me I could more or less move in, although there was a fair amount of stuff to be done, and I am lucky enough to know the kind of people who can do that stuff (painting, stripping beams etc – contact me for references!)
Anyway, I have various bits of furniture that I need and I really didn’t want to go down the made-in-china-ikea route and I am fortunate enough to have artesan friends who not only have the skills but also a good line in well-sourced wood.
The following is a link so some amazing custom made benches made for my kitchen. I have asked the same fantastic carpenter to make me some other custom woodwork which will appear here soon…
I can’t recommend enough in terms of quality and understanding of the customer’s needs – check him out:
