“The combined inspiration of James Mayor and Sherry Wales helped transform our kitchen from a functional rectangle at the back of the house into a light, airy and gracious living space. James Mayor was the only company that enabled me articulate a personal statement through furniture, combining a clean modernity with a nod to the past. Everyone who comes here breathes out, and it is an eternal haven for ourselves and our friends. Good job!”

“We are lucky enough to enjoy bespoke James Mayor furniture in almost every room of our house, from a fully-fitted kitchen, to fitted wardrobes in all of the bedrooms, a combined bookshelf/cabinet for the audio-visual gear in the TV snug and also some beautiful paneling in the hall and dining room.
Each of these pieces of furniture was expertly designed by James and his team following simple on-site discussions on our style preferences and the ‘look’ we were trying to achieve. In addition, the production and delivery timetables and final costs were always in line with his initial quotes, so there never any difficult conversations regarding over-runs. Finally, the family team of independent fitters that installed our furniture on-site were recommended by James because of their experience with his designs and their ‘client-friendly’ approach and ensured that the finished article looked as good in our house as the ‘ideal home’ photos on the web-site!
We have lived with James’ furniture for almost 10 years now and, following a recent re-paint, it looks and feels as stunning as the day it was installed. We have no hesitation in recommending his work to all of our friends.”
“James Mayer Bespoke Furniture – we were introduced to this company by a main contractor who was completely re-modelling our house. Fortunately, it also came with the added bonus of a first-class Interior Designer – and together they were able to achieve an amazing transformation of our property. From design of bespoke furniture in all areas of the house, to colour schemes, electrical appliances, all furnishings,etc., Throughout our home they achieved a complete modernisation in a record time with superb quality and service. Without their expertise and dedication to detail, we would never have achieved the results we did – which were so good, pictures of them appeared in the magazine “25 Beautiful Homes” – including the front cover! We would thoroughly recommend them to anyone.“

“Our experience of James Mayor Furniture has been consistently good. We have had several fittings of bespoke pieces with innovative and practical designs. The quality and attention to detail has always been good and the furniture wears well. The whole process from design to installation is efficient and convenient .
I would and have recommended to others.“
“Having moved into a large new build house with lots of magnolia walls and cold clinical features, we were desperate to find someone to help us plan and decorate the house so as to make it into a real home for our three children and black labrador. Our old furniture looked small and out of place in the new house and so we knew we needed to invest in some new pieces. The proportions of the rooms required bespoke furniture and so having trawled the internet I came across James Mayor Furniture site. Due to the extensive picture gallery I got a really good impression of the style and diverse range of furniture they could offer. So I rang and made an appointment for James to visit. As they are based in Birmingham and I am in Kent, I was surprised at how quickly I was offered an appointment. I soon realised that is not a problem for them and that in fact they do a huge amount of work in the South East.
We started with planning the playroom and children’s bedrooms and as the furniture is predominantly painted, I was nervous about having to choose colours by myself. Every room needed a plan and I was overwhelmed. So James suggested that Sherry Wales (interior designer) get in touch to talk me through the different colour options that would work and that was the beginning of a beautiful, fun and long lasting relationship where I was offered help and advise in choosing everything I needed from furniture, paint colour, fabric, wall paper, light fittings etc.. We took it slowly and did it carefully and methodically, both for the sake of getting it right and affordability. I never felt pressured to buy something I didn’t like or couldn’t afford. The result has been amazing. From the first step of looking through the website, to the final step of fitting and decorating, the whole experience has been very positive. I would highly recommend James Mayor to anyone looking for bespoke furniture, be it a large project or an individual piece of furniture. The standard and quality is excellent and it is a pleasure to work with this talented team. “
“Sherry’s design ideas transformed the downstairs of our house to a functional family home. We really appreciated the personal service and the professional management of the whole project. She understood our requirements and delivered a great result which included a bespoke kitchen and fantastic lounge cabinets designed by James. They come highly recommended.“
