Mowlem & Co has been crafting bespoke kitchens and furniture for more than 25 years. Founded in Newcastle-upon-Tyne by Gary Mowlem, the company has become widely known for its high level of design, attention to detail and customer service that begins with an initial sketch and continues through to the installation. The design team enjoy genuine creative freedom, allowing them to meet the most exacting of requirements in the most inspired way possible. This is one of the many reasons Mowlem & Co is a favourite with interior designers and architects, who know they can trust the company to deliver a top quality, unique kitchen every time, that is in keeping with the house and clients’ style (in fact, 80 per cent of clients come to the company through personal recommendation –
an impressive statistic which is virtually unheard of in the bespoke kitchen industry).
Every element of Mowlem & Co’s award- winning work is constructed and finished using carefully selected materials. Traditional, hand-crafted techniques are combined with the latest state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment and computer systems in the company’s vast Newcastle factory to produce aesthetically beautiful furniture that is also impeccably functional. And, rather than branch out into other areas of joinery, the company has grown its expertise and knowledge over the years by focusing entirely on kitchens, bedroom furniture and media units. The company presses all the veneered doors and book matches nearly all elements themselves (pairing up adjoining surfaces so they mirror each other); they also make all their own doors (except for those in the ‘Parapan’ kitchen) and construct the made-to-measure carcasses in house.
Mowlem & Co has a showroom in Newcastle, and the flagship store in London. Design director Jane Stewart has been integral in developing the brand to its current position and has consistently set trends in the bespoke kitchen industry by offering clients something original.
