Burlanes Installers

Our Ethos

Built to last

Each and every single piece of furniture we design, handmake and install is built to last a lifetime, with beautiful dovetailed drawers, durable cabinets and hinges, and never-fail door closures. We only use materials and timber of the highest quality, from sustainable, FSC certified forests that are responsibly managed and maintained. Sustainability and our impact on the environment is hugely important to us; we have invested in precise machinery to ensure waste is kept to an absolute minimum.

Our Furniture Workshop

Handmade To Order

All of our furniture is handmade in our own workshop located in the historic town of Rochester, by our team of talented and dedicated cabinet makers, joiners and craftsmen. Combining traditional style and craftsmanship with precision engineering and modern machinery, we create beautiful, handmade British furniture, using only the finest, sustainably sourced, materials.
