A globally renowned furniture brand, famed for beautiful design and quality, Smallbone is the world’s finest luxury kitchen and bespoke cabinetry maker. With such a reputation, it’s also the preferred partner of many of the most distinguished property developers, interior designers and architects.
A design pioneer with craft at its heart, Smallbone has been meticulously hand making furniture for more than 40 years. Today, the brand continues to innovate; unique schemes are created to exacting standards by combining traditional skills and state-of-the-art manufacturing equipment at its workshop in Devizes, Wiltshire. Time-honoured artisan techniques sit alongside the latest robotic woodworking machinery to produce furniture for any conceivable space within the home – from kitchens to bathrooms, wine rooms to rooms, living rooms, bedrooms, and libraries alike.
Although Smallbone’s capacity to make fine furniture has never been in doubt, its ability to work with clients’ design teams to take a visual language that has been created for the architecture of a building and produce a fully formed unique piece – whether that be for a kitchen, bathroom, bedroom or other key space – is something that has not been championed until now. The spaces Smallbone is asked to furnish range from grand scale private homes to luxury multi-apartment residences.

On a much larger scale, the Smallbone team worked on Central Park Tower, the world’s tallest residential building. It developed a palette of materials that reflected the design language of the building: four cabinet finishes including three sets of veneer and a bespoke hammered metal that was inspired by an antique European nickel sink. Elsewhere, the development at 35 Hudson Yards required a style of furniture that was both modern and elegant. Smallbone’s solution was to create a minimalistic bespoke cabinet design by using hand-selected bleached eucalyptus veneered doors, walnut veneered carcasses and solid walnut timber draw boxes.
These are a snapshot of projects that show Smallbone’s capacity to take an agile and collaborative approach to the design and manufacture of bespoke furniture, and create the finest cabinetry, covetable kitchens and elegant bedrooms.
