You delivered a superking size half-tester bed, a Welsh dresser and a refectory table to us a couple of weeks ago. We have now got used to them, and they to us, and we are even more thrilled with them now than when you arrived with them.
We had wanted to find furniture that was in keeping with our mediaeval cottage, and although we had thought about buying original antiques, there were all sorts of problems associated with that. Coming across The Four Poster Bed Company via Google one night was enough to persuade us to make a weekend trip to Leominster, and we are so glad that we did. To be able to create our own, very specific design was wonderful, but even better was to see the people who were going to make our furniture and how much trouble they were taking, using old skills to make something so personal to us.
I'm quite sure that you realised how pleased we were when you and Jim brought the furniture all the way to Surrey to set it up in situ. We love it. It's perfect. And the icing on the cake was that we ended up spending considerably less than we might have done on not only on authentic period furniture, but also on a lot of reproduction, mass-produced items as well. We have three family heirlooms made to EXACTLY the sizes and designs that we wanted.
Thank you so very much to you and your team for your help, suggestions, designs and the very special end product. Please feel free to use this email as an endorsement of your services. We will be recommending you to anyone who wants to know about furniture!
