The Russians Are Coming.

21st August 2016




A recent commission for Russian clients in West London involved listening carefully to the client about her perception of British culture as a child growing up in Russia, in order to build a highly personal bespoke kitchen design that would fulfill her exacting requirements.

She confided in me that as a child she never had her head out of a Dickens book and dreamed of dark deep rich interior woodwork and finely carved details. Unable to find this level of work in London she approached Carved Wood to design and make her dream handmade bespoke kitchen with all the idiosyncrasies of her childhood dreams.

Below is a copy of the five star review the client left on my google maps page upon completion of the project.

Gareth from Carved Wood Design has built more than a genuinely bespoke kitchen which fits the space as a glove. He has restored our trust in British craftsmanship and work ethics after the worst experience we had with renovating our house in West London by Wild West London’s cowboys. Starting from his first visit to take measurements we’ve been enjoying his genuine and “wholesome” attitude to our project. Apart from an amazing kitchen, we received a wealth of advice from Gareth in putting the whole kitchen space together which was priceless given his remarkable taste and experience. He has a strong artistic vision of the space which can be trusted but he was also keen to meet our idiosyncratic aspirations when coming up with the versions of the design. Our design included his signature carvings which continue to amuse everyone. And we can appreciate the attention to detail and high quality inside-out using the cabinets day-to-day. It feels that we are sorted with a kitchen forever and this is the one which is going to age beautifully. In our experience, the work that you get from Carved Wood Design is simply an extinct species in London, as far as kitchens are concerned, so we feel extremely lucky to have discovered his website online. It’s someone’s hard work, genuinely artistic vision, perfected craftsmanship and goodwill materialized in our home which is not only “money well spent” but more than it can buy. A happy client from Richmond, West London
