Handmade Fitted Kitchens and Bespoke Furniture
Kenneth Streat Furniture
About Kenneth Streat Furniture
Working from a rural workshop in Devon, I have been designing and making bespoke furniture for more than thirty years. I undertake projects varying in size from the lectern at Dartington great hall to a fitted kitchen in English oak with thirty two drawers and thirty doors.
Second is proportion, it should look ‘right’, it should rest easily on the eye. A successful furniture maker must also be a good draftsman. The first stage of any piece of furniture is on paper, and it must work at this stage.
The third aspect is the timber. While there are structural requirements for certain timbers in certain places, particularly in making joinery, ninety five percent of which timber to use when making furniture is down to taste, cost and tradition. All timber when finished and polished has its own unique natural beauty. I try to work to both my customers requirements and to their budget, from the expense of hand selected English hardwoods through to the simplicity of Scandinavian pine.
