Britain at its Best

Bring the ‘B’ back into Bespoke

With the Christmas season concluded and the relief of saying goodbye to the relations and the faded memories of the turkey and brussel soup, it might be a good time to start looking at the interior of the house. With a New Year starting and your resolution near to breaking point already there has not been a better incentive to do so.

With so many things being produced outside the UK now a days and the ever growing worry about the green house gases produced by transportation, it is nice to know that there are still small pockets within our great green rolling hills that can produce outstanding quality. England has been associated with great craftsmanship though out the centuries, Thomas Chippendale, George Hepplewhite, Thomas Sheraton, Waring and Gillow, making a selection of the finest furniture we will ever see.

Thankfully this skill has not been lost over the years and overthrown by model methods of mass production and the greatest invention of the 20th century ‘MDF’.

People’s tastes have changed and they see the benefits of smaller personal high street shops, giving them what they need rather than what they think they need. The same goes for the internet, a great and ever expanding encyclopedia of information but still lacks, that hands on shopping experience.

The personal touch is what people are looking for and here at Harmans, you get just that. Whether it is the importance of matching up the colour to your existing furniture or down to the choosing of the timber grain, the ‘bespoke’ service is truly back. 

Here in the heart of England, 45 minutes from the groaning pressure of the London, lays a green and peaceful oasis, the wealth of years of experience in the antique and retail trade unleashed upon the quaint, quite streets of Dorking.

Shopping for your furniture should be a comfortable and calm occasion and not the hassle and busily of larger stores that treat people like artificial numbers and not like the individual that they are.

 At Harmans, it is all about bring the ‘B’ back into Bespoke
