Richard Rose Furniture & Kitchens

We are a family run business established in 1988, although Richard has been working with wood for over 34 years. We live next to our workshop which can be found a few miles outside Canterbury in the village of Chartham, Kent.

Richard worked restoring antique furniture for many years, gaining valuable experience on how to construct furniture to a standard which would make it last centuries. Our furniture is carefully and correctly built resulting in a timeless piece.

We welcome visitors to our workshop to discuss possible commissions and view our work in progress. We can price a prospective job from a few measurements and a basic sketch.

These can be turned into prepared drawings when required. Freestanding furniture can be delivered to any part of the United Kingdom at reasonable cost.

My wife and I required an Oak table, a settle and a chest of a particular size, design and quality. In spite of spending hours on the internet and scouring local business, we found none that suited our purposes.

We were introduced to Richard Rose Furniture by a friend for whom he had made a sideboard and which they were most impressed with.

I am very pleased to say that he has been able to make us exactly what we required at an agreeable price and in an acceptable time scale.

I commissioned Richard to design and make a large piece of furniture which I had been unable to buy anywhere else. I was able to visit the workshop, discuss the design, subsequent manufacturing, choose the wood and door furniture.

The service provided by Richard Rose Furniture represented a completely satisfactory affair. We were able to obtain exactly what we wanted and he, in turn, gained a happy customer who will commission more work in the future.
