Furniture makers redefining bespoke
McCarron & Co was established in 2009 by Andy McCarron and six colleagues, who combined a wealth of experience with a burning ambition.
Having worked together for more than 20 years, they set up McCarron & Co to fuse traditional design and techniques such as veneering and marquetry, with a contemporary aesthetic. Their restless desire to find new materials, try new techniques and create future classics continues to drive the company. This has created an ethos that embraces change and evolution built on a strong foundation of values. Its design and service are second to none, and its furniture is in high demand from interior designers and architects as well as clients throughout Britain and Europe.
In 2010, McCarron & Co opened its first showroom and workshop in Bromham, Wiltshire; the second showroom followed in Chelsea five years ago and in 2016, a third showroom was opened in Notting Hill. Today, the focus is on growing the business, while continuing to push the boundaries of its bespoke product (which includes branching out into the world of furniture for superyachts). In a market where people are moving away from a disposable buying culture and instead looking for investment pieces, the company is perfectly placed to remain one step ahead of the competition through the level of detailing that goes into each product and the overall customer experience.
Every McCarron & Co product is custom-made at its workshops in Wiltshire, from a burnished wood console table with metal inlay details to a square panelled in-frame kitchen. One current key collection is the striking Albemarle range, which has been lauded as a new modern classic and can be seen at the Notting Hill showroom. Tapping into the continuing trend for brushed metal detailing, and with a wonderfully symmetrical design, it is a truly inspirational new style of cabinetry.
This brushed metal effect detailing is one of McCarron & Co’s strengths, which it offers as well as leather, fabric and any furniture colour the client can dream up (popular colours for painted kitchens at the moment include light green and sage green). In fact, the company prides itself on being able to offer a solution to any brief, even a piece of furniture that the team may not have made before.
McCarron & Co enjoys designing and fitting individual rooms as much as creating one-off items of furniture. And a whole house assignment makes for a singularly satisfying project, which may encompass a wine room, library, dressing rooms and kitchens. One recent client who commissioned the company for such a project said afterwards, ‘McCarron & Co executed the brief with an incredibly high level of expertise and craftsmanship. It was key that they were able to work with both the in-house and on-site teams, which they did throughout, ensuring that everything ran effectively. Their attention to detail was flawless, resulting in a beautiful, stylish home’. A telling testimonial about a bespoke furniture company whose pieces are conceived with imagination, designed with enthusiasm and built with dedication.
