WHAT ATTRACTED YOU TO CLIVE CHRISTIAN FURNITURE CO.?
Having worked in furniture for most of my career, I was MD of an engineering business for a few years. I realised that I didn’t have any engagement with the product. There was no desire to see the manufacturing through to the finished product or opportunity to work with design and materials. I realised that personally, I needed to be in a position where I was able to be involved in every stage of the production process. Clive Christian Furniture Co. provided the opportunity to utilise the experience I had gained throughout my career - sales, product development, design and manufacture and I relished the opportunity to front a business with both the vision and ambition to be the very best.
WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE SETS US APART FROM OTHER MAKERS?
The team. Everyone understands what we are aiming for and their role in making it happen. The workshop team has a great detail ethic about making every aspect perfect. Working with “live” materials means you have to have that feel and understanding with the timber to finish it well. Experience is key and we have that in abundance, many of our craftsmen have worked with us or in specialist woodwork for 20+ years.
One of our key strengths is our ability to create a luxurious interior that people want to live in. Wood brings a warmth to a room, be it classic or modern. The ability to deal with bespoke elements through CAD design, freehand and discussions with the workshop team enables us to deliver the bespoke interiors our clients desire.
