What is an Heirloom?
An heirloom - as defined by the Oxford dictionary - is an ‘object that has belonged to a family for generations’
During my business career I have been very fortunate to be intimately involved in the creation of many beautiful free standing pieces of furniture/heirloom pieces that encapsulate all of the skills I’ve learnt/developed in the last 30 years namely: Cabinet Making, Marquetry, Inlaying and French Polishing.
What constitutes an Heirloom piece?
By commissioning me to build an heirloom piece of furniture, by definition, you’re starting the process through which something tangible and utterly unique to yourself – through day to day use and enjoyment - can be passed on to your family/loved ones and therefore act as a permanent reminder of you. I have been honoured to make numerous heirloom pieces of furniture which have included;
"Nicholas Jones is a talented and experienced craftsman who made a substantial and varied amount of bespoke cabinetry for us when we recently moved into a newly built flat.
The major items he made for us were a wall mounted display unit with individual compartments that were each illuminated by dimmable LED lights, a floor standing unit with a retractable housing for the television, storage and built in LED lighting, two bedside tables and two mirrored bathroom cabinets and a vanity unit. He also built a rack to display patchwork quilts, an elegant frame for a mirror and installed lighting in the glass fronted top of a secretaire.
We enjoyed participating with him in the design of these objects and found him an excellent communicator and a joy to work with. The standard of finish of all his work is outstanding and he is ingenious in finding solutions to practical problems of design and execution.
We are delighted with his work and unreservedly recommend Nicholas to anybody who wants quality, imaginative bespoke cabinetry."
