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.

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.

We had an idea of the sort of kitchen we wanted and looked around a number of well known kitchen shops and didnt find anything we really liked. We recently moved to Chartham and drove past the sign for Richard Rose Furniture. We thought we would pop in and have a look aound the workshop and were immediately impressed by Richard's portfolio of work, craftmanship and clear enthusiasm for his work. We talked through all our options and it was evident that this would be a fully bespoke service. We came up with a design, (changed it a few times!) and were able to visit the workshop a number of times to see the work in progress. The final result is stunning, it is more than we could have hoped for. Alongside Mick, the kithen fitter and John, the plumber and electirican, the three of them make a fantastic, friendly and professional team, always making us feel like nothing was too much to ask. We look forward to working with them all again in the future.
