Biography Back to top

Anthony Gray & John Gray are two generations of cabinet makers who between them have over 65 years experience of fine furniture making. From their workshops in Essex, they are able to undertake commissions in all areas of the South-East including Greater London and the Home Counties.

They offer hand-built lighting and furniture, both free-standing and fitted. These can be manufactured using solid hardwoods, veneers and other modern materials or a combination of them all. All of their furniture can be finished to their customers specifications, which can include natural and modern polishes together with specialist spray paint finishes.

Being workshop based and having no showrooms enables them to have lower overheads creating savings which they pass on to our customers.
