Our Furniture

Design

Newcastle Furniture Company started in 1979 when two highly qualified and experienced furniture designer/cabinetmakers, with a thorough knowledge and understanding of furniture making techniques and of hardwoods, began making exquisite freestanding pieces. To this day, the company continues to design and make both standard and bespoke tables, sideboards, dressers, dressing tables, bedside cabinets and beds alongside its better known fitted furniture. The company is owned today by one of the original directors, a qualified furniture designer, and is committed to producing furniture that will stand the test of time, both aesthetically and practically. Good design is critical and the company is well known for its clean lines, simple and straightforward style.

The workshops 

Located in Gateshead, a short distance from the Tyne Bridge and the centre of Newcastle and Gateshead itself, our well-equipped 11,000 square foot factory is where we make everything. 
 
Newcastle Furniture combines the use of sophisticated modern woodworking machinery with the most traditional cabinet making skills to ensure its long established team of craftsmen in the workshops produce the finest possible build quality. Several of these craftsmen have been with us for over 25 years and the continuity of their combined skills is a significant element of our company‘s ability  to maintain the high standards for which we are well known. 
 
A proper  appreciation of the natural beauty and value of the materials that go into making our furniture is a vital element of our craftsmanship. The hardwoods that we use – poplar, maple, cherry, oak, walnut, beech, iroko and sapele; the granites, slates, marble and resin-stone for worksurfaces, stainless-steel, hand-woven willow basketry, the glass as well as the best hardware available to the furniture industry – these are all the highest quality ingredients and they all need careful use and understanding in the manufacturing process.

Lacquers, furniture oils and paint finishes  are all of the best quality too and applied to the highest standards. Our finishing shop is staffed by the most experienced polishers and our understanding of the correct products and of how they should be used ensures that your furniture will be well protected and capable of standing the test of time.

Installation

With over three decades of experience in designing and installing furniture both in the UK and abroad from apartments, town and country houses to stately homes and castles, the company has accumulated a wealth of experience.

Personal service and attention to detail in the design and installation side of things is an essential ingredient at Newcastle Furniture, resulting in very good relationships between our customers and the company. Correct and careful fitting of our furniture in our clients’ homes has always been of great importance. The considerable growth of the company has not resulted in any reduction in the quality of our friendly and professional approach to ‘site work’. We have always made sure that the quality of work by our installation teams of  furniture fitters, plumbers, stone worktop specialists and on site hand-painters is of the very same high standard as the work carried out in the factory itself.
