'We are over the moon with our new kitchen and utility room. Darren gently guided us through what could have been a very stressful time, after all it’s not an insignificant investment. His design and advice was second to none. 
We really liked the fact we could pop along to the workshop and see our kitchen come alive and when we decided to make an alteration here or there, they happily obliged. 
Darren also sent regular pictures and updates during the manufacturing process. This all helps to ease the nerves. 
We would like to thank Darren and Tom for all their hard work and their first class customer service. We would highly recommend.'

'This is our beautiful kitchen in Launton, designed and installed by Furniture & Design of Oxford, with Darren heading it up. We were absolutely delighted with the whole process from start to finish. Thank you so much for your care, patience and advice along the way.' Stunning job.

'Kitchen N° 2 from the team at Furniture & Design and yet again it is a masterpiece! Darren offers practical solutions but never compromising on style, so you know before they start that what you are going to get is a kitchen fit for a masterchef but that works in a busy household. Then the build starts and Tom, Emma and Adam work their magic and the kitchen becomes a reality. 
Everyone who comes into my house is blown away by how the space has been transformed into a stylish modern kitchen.'

'We have just had our new kitchen designed, manufactured and installed by Furniture & Design of Kidlington, Oxford. The result is simply spectacular. It is more than we could ever have hoped for or imagined. 
The design is both creative and unique, functionality outstanding and the final look pleasing to the eye and yes beautiful. Darren and his team’s attention to detail and craftsmanship are of the highest quality and the result speaks for itself. 
Friends and family have commented on the kitchen and so have tradesmen, complimenting us and commenting on its quality. 
As with any large purchase the aftersales service is so very important and here again Darren and the team have not let us down. They were easy to get hold of when required and, at every stage of the install, they kept us informed which helped ease the process and make it all as stress-free as possible. 
If you want a kitchen that will last for many, many years, this is a quality product, competitively priced and is made and installed by a fabulous firm, you cannot get better than Furniture & Design.'

"We are absolutely delighted with the beautiful kitchen that Darren designed for us. From the first meeting we had, we knew we were in professional hands. Darren takes great pride in his knowledge and years of experience which he shared with us whilst listening to our requests. This was also reflected in his hand-drawn design plans. We were excited and keen for the work to begin. 
When the manufacturing began, Darren regularly sent photos and videos to show the progress being made by Tom and the team in the workshop, which was a nice touch, building on the anticipation! 
The team’s installation of the complete kitchen was flawless and precise, highlighting their excellent craftsmanship. All the while working cleanly and quietly, at all times showing respect for our home. 
We are so proud of our unique bespoke kitchen. It has a wonderful sense of light and spaciousness. The quality of the work and attention to detail are outstanding. We love the breakfront oak drawers and shelves, the use of space, the lighting - above, below (and inside!) some cupboards and the fact that it was all entirely hand-made. Even the colour of the oak wood finish is matched perfectly to the flooring. Most importantly it's exactly what we wanted, in fact, even better! 
Since completion of our new kitchen, Darren and his team have also renovated our old kitchen into a utility/storage room and again we are thrilled with the result. 
A huge thank you to Darren, Tom, Emma, Adam and Lindsay."

"We couldn't be happier with our revamped kitchen! Darren and the team were great to work with and were professional at every stage of the work. Our kitchen was originally made by this company 16 years ago and has stood the test of time - nothing was broken. We did however decide to change the colour and worktops. Friends have commented that it looks like a brand new kitchen. We would have no hesitation in using this company again."

"Darren and his team designed and built wardrobes, shelving and lighting for the three bedrooms in our 1930s cottage. Some of the spaces they worked in were small with unusual angles. The finished furniture is very well made and suits the character of our home and our tastes perfectly. They managed to combine an Arts &Crafts feel for us with modern styles and clever lighting for our teenage sons. Darren and his colleagues were always friendly, polite and very helpful with their design suggestions. We would highly recommend this family-run business." 
"Wow, we are so pleased with all parts of the process. From design to selection of colours and materials it was all so easy and Darren and Tom were there to assist at every stage. The installation was painless, very quick and the extra touches really added value. 
Since the kitchen installation Darren and Tom have been back to build three window seats, study furniture, a TV cabinet, a console table, bedroom furniture, radiator covers, and bathroom furniture. All beautifully designed and built and the console table in particular is a future antique. 
We would absolutely recommend!"

"Darren's passion for designing and building beautiful and quality kitchens was evident throughout the process. The family team behind the scenes are always friendly and helpful which makes Furniture & Design a pleasure to deal with as well as producing a beautiful result." 
Joy & Phil, Kidlington 
“A flair for stylish but practical design, supported by skilled craftsmen working out of modern facilities, allowed Furniture & Design to provide us with an excellent service and exactly what we had requested. Always pleasant to work with, they had the flexibility to design and build fitted kitchens, wardrobes and bookshelves that gave modern levels of functionality whilst still respecting the character of properties as diverse as Victorian cottages, large Edwardian villas and detached new build houses."

“We are renovating a big old house and have encountered all sorts of tradesmen and specialists in the process, but Darren and Tom are without a doubt the best we have ever used. Darren's attention to detail is second to none; he builds in little things to ‘future-proof’ and allow easy access. It has turned out beautifully. 
Initially they were just going to build a Shaker style kitchen for us, but since the kitchen was completed we have continued with a new utility room and a huge set of bookcases in the living room (including a ladder). All three projects have been exceptional and I think we may have to think about the rest of the house now! 
Aside from the workmanship, they are a lovely team and easy to have around. I trust them completely and they are the only company I know who I can give a key to and leave them to it."

"Darren is passionate about designing and building kitchens! His knowledge and input at the design stage of our house renovation was invaluable. The quality of workmanship in the finished product is second to none. It was lovely to be able to pop into the workshop whilst our kitchen was being built and meet the rest of the highly skilled team at Furniture & Design. We could not have been happier with our kitchen and the service provided and would not hesitate in recommending Furniture & Design to our friends".

"We wanted to write and thank you for all your and your team's hard work in helping to design, to install and to finish our new kitchen and utility room. We are very pleased with how the rooms have turned out. 
Throughout, you have always been on time, cheerful, patient with our enquiries and engaging with our boys. These are great qualities which both of us hope will continue to serve you well for many years to come."

'I wanted alcove cupboards and shelves built either side of my sitting room chimney breast. It was evident from Darren’s passion for design and his attention to detail that I would be in safe hands if I placed the work with Furniture & Design. I therefore did not hesitate and, now that the work has been completed, I congratulate myself on my decision. The process could not have been smoother, from my early visit to the workshop to the final stage of fitting. The quality of craftsmanship is superb and, perhaps equally remarkable in these Covid times, the work has completed right on schedule.' 
Philip, Oxford 
"You completed our kitchen in February 2007. I must say it's a credit to you and your staff as it looks and is as good as the day you fitted it. Since then I have not even had to adjust any doors at all, or any other parts, just a wipe down and that includes the paintwork. 
I would like to thank you and Tom for what you achieved in refurbishing our kitchen."

"The care and attention to detail to the end execution of the job has no bounds and what a joy to work along such a charming family bringing your dreams to fruition and a magnificent reality to enjoy for many years ahead. Thank you all, what an amazing team and any client would be fortunate in finding you and using your design and fabrication." 
Emma, Bladon 
“Darren and his team designed and built a set of bedroom furniture for us, including built-in wardrobes. We were very pleased with the level of service, attention to detail and quality of the design. They were more expensive than Hammonds and Sharps, but we felt the premium was justified for the more innovative design and personal service.”

"Furniture and Design had been recommended to me by a friend who had used them for a kitchen update. I am so grateful to her. I had already talked through my project with, and received quotations from, a number of joinery companies but when I met Darren I was really impressed at his friendly attitude, totally bespoke design and very fair pricing. 
There were two elements to the work which Darren did for me: library shelving with cupboards for storage and radiators below and also a walk-in wardrobe room. My house is Georgian with plenty of challenges for a designer and craftsman such as Darren. The walls are never totally straight, the door frames are somewhat wonky and the architrave around the windows is not necessarily a true rectangle. I also added my own complication by wanting a very large TV to loom slightly less obviously in the library while at the same time not covering it up. 
Darren took all these challenges into consideration and came up with beautiful drawings which ultimately became a reality with which I am delighted to live every day. During the fitting there were plenty of other trades getting in their way and dust, noise and mess everywhere. This must have been frustrating for them but they were unfailingly polite throughout the process. Darren came back promptly to make a few minor amendments and to fit handles at the end of the project. I would use Darren again without hesitation and thoroughly recommend Furniture and Design. They are really nice people who do an excellent job".

"Thank you Darren and Tom for a superb transformation of our bedroom. The fitted wardrobes just look great on the gable wall, giving a sleek look to the room. Nothing was too much trouble and everyone was so helpful. Thank you again." 
Jenny, Middle Barton 
"If it's quality workman-ship you're after, then Furniture & Design is the place to go. Having discussed with the team what we were looking for, they created and installed a custom built unit which is just perfect." 
John & Beverley 
"Darren and his team have been brilliant right from the start - guiding us through design options with meticulous attention to detail, making innovative suggestions to provide a beautifully crafted unique kitchen which is a delight to live in. 
They were a pleasure to have in our home, got on with their work quietly and efficiently and always left the kitchen clean and tidy."

Thanks once again for all your attention to detail and Tom’s expertise. I’ve loved the way you care so much about customer satisfaction. 5 stars from us!" 
Tanja, Headington 
"We embarked on an ambitious remodelling of the whole ground floor of our house, part of it being to knock a kitchen and dining room into one room. 
Darren and Tom were brilliant, taking our thoughts and ideas and turning them into a beautiful kitchen. 
They worked well with the builder, floor layer, electricians and decorators to give us a perfect kitchen which was stylish and practical. Nothing was too much trouble and when we changed our minds they simply accommodated our requests.

"We are very happy with the work carried out by Furniture & Design Ltd who have a very fine eye for detail. Our resulting kitchen has been much admired by all who have seen it." 
Penny & Graham, Marlow 
"We are still so pleased with our kitchen. I feel that you listened and took on board what we were trying to achieve when you designed and built our kitchen. The quality of the cabinetry is superb and the attention to detail really shows. 
I am sure that the kitchen will stand the test of time as the design and style will not date, and I know it will have added value to our property. 
I would also like to thank you for 
Hand-made kitchen, Lacey Green, Bucks
coming out and rectifying the couple of problems that we have had, even though they didn't involve your cabinets. It shows that Furniture & Design are willing to go that extra mile to make sure customers are happy. Because of this we have recommended you to a couple of our friends who have now had kitchens from you too. 
We are so pleased with the work that you and your guys did for us that we were also happy to do an article in Beautiful Kitchens Magazine showing our lovely kitchen. We wish you and the staff at Furniture & Design the very best." 
Trish & David, Lacey Green 
"We have had work done by Darren and his team, including a new kitchen, a completely renovated existing kitchen, a laundry room and a bedroom. On each of these occasions I have been extremely impressed with his innovative ideas, his finished product and the reasonable cost for such a high standard. I would not hesitate in recommending Furniture & Design to anyone, and would be delighted to show off the areas concerned."

The quality of the workmanship is very high; everything feels solid and durable."

"We hired Furniture & Design to build a shelving unit for our front room with a matching fire surround. Didn't want it to cost the earth, but still wanted it to look good. Darren and his team were professional, courteous and great to work with. 
From first contact through to the final installation, they listened to us and delivered exactly what we had requested. Couldn't recommend them highly enough!"

"I can warmly recommend Darren Wells and his team at Furniture & Design. They are all professional, efficient, friendly and helpful and the outcome of their work is transformation and total satisfaction. 
Darren designed and installed a kitchen for me some years ago now and he was impressive in his grasp of what we wanted and how a multitude of specific problems could be solved. No detail was too small for him to attend to and the overall effect is still superb after some years of functioning. 
Since then I have asked him to create bedroom furniture, fittings in a utility room, which is also used as a small art studio, and what turned out to be a very fine set of glass-fronted and open oak shelves with cupboards and drawers beneath covering one wall of our dining room. This has been admired by everyone who has seen it. 
Darren is a master of finish and of lighting and the superb functioning of his furniture is matched by its well-designed lines and aesthetic appearance."

"Furniture & Design has also recently undertaken a major project to create vestry facilities in our local church (All Saints, Cuddesdon) and that has transformed the appearance and use of a transept within the building and provided high-quality drawers for vestments and altar covers, as well as a wardrobe and smaller cupboards. 
Darren had to design furniture that fitted around a stone bench that could not be removed and this further demonstrated that he is a designer who solves apparently insuperable problems. His drawings and plans impressed even the Oxford Diocesan Advisory Committee and his workmanship and that of his team is evidently of the highest quality".
