Wychwood Design is a well established manufacturer of high quality fitted and free standing furniture for the contract and domestic furniture markets.
The company's manufacturing base is comprehensive and flexible, employing workers whose traditional skills and experience in furniture making are backed up with the latest manufacturing methods and computerised technology.
The manufacturing, polishing and upholstery departments are all under one roof at Brize Norton in Oxfordshire, allowing the company flexibility and full control of all aspects of production.
Wychwood Design broadly operates in two areas of manufacture; firstly in a standard range of items comprising of chairs, sofas, tables, consoles, nightstands, desks and other associated furniture which are all polished and upholstered to the client's specifications.
Secondly, in the design and production of special items and batch ranges of completely individual and original pieces developed in association with interior designers, architects, and specifiers.

Materials used are predominantly Beech, American White Oak, Cherry, Walnut and Mahogany, with other timbers such as Wenge, Sycamore and Maple being popular. The company has it's own veneering facilities which allows the use of more exotic timbers in crossbanding, inlay and marquetry detail.
Polishing and finishing are all done to specification and, in addition to the standard range of stains, the company also offers a colour matching service as well as special finishes including french polishing, crackle glaze, distressing, dragging and gilding.
Modern upholstery techniques are employed by the company where sofas, corner units and armchairs are made to the client's specified dimensions. From cutting and sewing, to deep buttoning, nailing and cushion filling selection, attention is paid to detail where aesthetics and comfort are of the utmost importance.
Great care is taken continually throughout the production process to ensure the finished product is always of the highest quality while maintaining keen and competitive prices. All furniture is manufactured to meet current and relevant British safety standards.
