I recently moved into a property with little to no storage. Sherry was a great help advising me on how best to utilise the space in my loft, under the stairs and in a tiny box room.

Within no time, all were fitted perfectly, decorated to my spec and I absolutely love my new storage cupboards and wardrobe.

Meeting different people from the James Mayor team is a huge testament to the bespoke nature of their service and I highly recommend James Mayor.

We were recommended James Mayor by a friend and have been very happy with the choice. Our beautiful blue study was of our own design, to work around odd stair intrusions and the light; James Mayor’s designer expertly adapted the design to make it real and cost effective, and installed it faster than we expected. When anyone sees the study they love it and ask who did the work, we really enjoy recommending James Mayor and the team and can’t wait to bring them in again for our next project.

We ordered our kitchen from James Mayor Furniture, from the very start of the process the company exceeded our expectations.

The initial designs created were excellent exactly what we were looking for, but taking into consideration how we as a family with two young children will use the kitchen area and space created by the extension we were having built. The team worked seamlessly with our builders, every issue with the build that had an impact on the kitchen (such as position of pipes and remaining chimney breast), the team from James Mayor Furniture found a solution. The insight Sherry gave with regards to lighting, opening up the entrance to the kitchen and cupboard heights made a great kitchen into an outstanding kitchen.

In addition to this the quality of the kitchen is second to none and is commented on by all our friends and family.

My wife and I can’t speak highly enough about our new bespoke furniture and the service received from James Mayor. Everyone involved and we have had contact with has been excellent.

The order process is straight forward and potential customers should not be deterred because there is no showroom.

Once you have progressed to the survey stage and receive a visit you will be wowed by the confidence, experience and attention to detail. Delivery and the handover/brief to the installer is slick too.

If you want furniture that is different to the limited choice in the shops and meets your personal requirements I suggest you contact James Mayor.

I highly recommend James Mayor Furniture. From the very first visit it was a pleasure to deal with Sherry and her team, who produced high quality fitted wardrobes in my small two bedroomed apartment giving me so much storage. The workmanship was excellent and she really took on board my needs and produced a very attractive and usable design. Her vision and ideas for further storage was hugely inspirational and I’m sure I’ll be using James Mayor Furniture again.

We were highly delighted with James Mayor Furniture. A large set of shelving for our music room measuring 4.5m x 2.4m, accommodating cupboards, extensive bookshelves, music storage, CD shelves and TV and audio equipment was designed exactly to fit our requirements and finished to a high standard. We are now anticipating the arrival of their next project for us – display shelves, more bookshelves and cupboards fitting into the alcoves of our large Victorian sitting room.

I selected James Mayor furniture for my wardrobes after a lot of research mainly because I liked the bespoke look of their products and they could be painted to create an individual look. From the moment I contacted them I found the team to be very helpful, professional and keen to deliver my individual requirements. Once I placed the order, the great customer service continued with updates on the build progress, and delivery and the installation being completed as agreed. I am very pleased with the finished job, now having wardrobes that have a bespoke appearance, maximise the storage space and were competitively priced.

Can’t recommend James Mayor highly enough – we are so pleased with our furniture – bespoke fitted cupboards, drawers, shelves and desks in the children’s rooms. We live in Suffolk so we approved the whole project over email. The fitters arrived and all was fitted and worked perfectly. I honestly wouldn’t use anyone else for fitted furniture. A really great company – try them !

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.

“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.”

I would highly recommend James Mayor. I was very impressed with the personal service I received from concept, design through to manufacture. I wanted an unusual detailed design for some built in alcove units and a sideboard to match and was very pleased with the result. The quality is of a very high standard. Everyone who comes to my house comments on how nice they are.

As with most projects there were some problems along the way relating to some parts provided by external suppliers but these were handled professionally and as quickly as possible.

“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!”

“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.

“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.
