They don't make furniture like they used to...or do they?

With the advances of computer aided manufacture and mass production, it has become very easy for manufacturers to focus upon the rapid production of products whilst forgetting to focus on quality- you will often find people berating the state of consumerism, comparing it to the more idyllic days where production was a lot more hands on.  It becomes increasingly difficult to find more unique products which are of a high quality.  

At Verve Workspace, we really care about the quality of our products, and offer ranges of reproduction furniture that is manufactured to the highest quality.  In the above photo, for example, you will see a beautiful chest which is currently being carved in one of our factories, ready for a castle in Scotland.  

The chest has been carved completely by hand (or chisel, and has taken two months to complete so far- that's dedication!  If you look closely, the detail and craftsmanship of the chest is absolutely phenomenal- and it has involved no machinery to cut corners, which is rare in this day and age.  

We offer a wide variety of reproduction furniture covering many different eras- from William and Mary solid oak pieces to Edwardian styles of the 1900s.  We take great care with the proportions of these pieces as well as the amalgamation of traditional construction methods with modern techniques and materials.  

However, we can also make subtle functional changes to many pieces, so that they are able to accommodate modern technology.  This desk, for example, is designed to accommodate computer equipment effectively, without compromising the aesthetics of this classic style.

There are so many options available from writing tables to armchairs and Chesterfield sofas, and it is also often possible to change dimensions to create furniture options that are more bespoke for your company.  

If you have any queries about reproduction furniture, or would like more information, please don't hesitate to contact us on: 08450 69 79 89, and we'll be happy to help you.
