Oakamoor House / Window Seat & Airing Cupboard – Michelle S

    

Once again James has delivered a masterpiece! James originally designed, built and installed our bespoke kitchen – which still looks stunning 2 years on. On this basis we commissioned James to design, build and install a bespoke integrated cupboard and window seat.

The results are beyond exceptional, I only wish I could share an image so you can see just what I mean. It has transformed a once redundant space on our landing area into an intimate, cosy place, where I can sit and admire our garden and read bedtime stories to our son. I cannot recommend James highly enough and would not hesitate to refer him what ever your need.

James from Anderson Reeve was commissioned to renew our kitchen in 2017.

Throughout the design and concept stage, CAD drawings were provided that accurately displayed the final layout; these together with James’s advice and guidance allowed us to quickly finalise a design that evolved into a highly effective and attractive working kitchen.

James’s technical and craftsmanship skills are exemplary; the final result was a perfectly finished installation of the very highest quality.  It looks stunningly good and works equally as well.

His high standards of customer care, use of quality materials and attention to detail add to the finished result and afford me the opportunity to recommend him extremely highly.

Pippy Oak and Painted office – E Lewis

    

Having read the glowing reviews on James’s website, we immediately knew that he would be the man for the job. We were looking to have an office installed in the second bedroom of our home which would give the storage space we needed whilst still allowing space for a sofa bed when guests come to stay.

Show more

James did not disappoint! He gave us a modern and expertly crafted home office which even included a cleverly designed sliding drawer unit which allowed the sofa bed to slide out underneath the desk! Without James, we would not have been able to make of the most of this space as we are now able to do. Throughout he was professional and methodical and we would not hesitate to recommend him and use his services again in the future.

Painted & Oak Entertainmet Centre – A Becket

    

James of Anderson Reeve co-designed, built and installed our living room furniture/entertainment centre in two stages over the last year. We honestly couldn’t have been more impressed, he was a pleasure to work with and we are delighted with our end product.

It has taken nearly six months to write this review (sorry James) but at least now we can properly endorse the craftsmanship and quality of materials as we have had no issues at all and the piece still looks as perfect as it did upon installation. We would wholeheartedly recommend Anderson Reeve to anyone thinking of commissioning any bespoke furniture, you will not be disappointed.

Rose Cottage – E L Wilkinson

    

We commissioned James to design and make a hand-made kitchen back in 2016 for what can only be described as a challenging space in our grade II listed cottage. From design through to completion, James project-managed the whole process with professionalism and incredible attention to detail.

Show more

He carefully listened to what we wanted whilst offering creative ideas and solutions and, as a result, gave us a kitchen which exceeded all expectations! The way he cleverly worked with the space available has given us the storage we need but which we never thought possible! His craftsmanship is the talking point for any visitors who see it and I would definitely recommend him to anyone who asks!

Painted Office Library – Craig B

In Spring 2015 we decorated our master bedroom and searched high and low for 2 bedside tables and 2 matching sets of drawers to fit an unusual sized space. After an extensive and fruitless search we realised that having hand-made, bespoke furniture was the only way that we would get exactly what we wanted, so we contacted James Reeves.

Show more

James came to measure up and talk to us about how he builds each piece for each client. We also decided to investigate have him completely fitting out our home office with bespoke bookcase, cupboards and desk, as our requirements were also very specific for this room. James discussed every little detail, working out all our best options on usage of space, aesthetics and price, and then he quoted for both rooms. At this point he informed us that he was busy for 12 months and that there would be a considerable wait before he was available to manufacture and install our furniture. Not wanting to ‘spoil the ship for a ha’ porth of tar’, we agreed that this was not an issue. We had already decided that we actively wanted James to do the bedroom and office furniture because we had been very impressed with the care and attention we had received from James during our dialogues about the design. From initial consultation to delivery and installation, James demonstrated professionalism and attention to detail exceeding our expectations. He patiently re-drew designs and drawings to address issues as they arouse and worked closely with us every step of the way. We are absolutely thrilled with the results. James is a gifted craftsman and his work is thorough and meticulous. Each room is exactly how we envisaged it and we cannot praise James highly enough for his ability to bring our wishes to such stunningly beautiful (and subsequently much-admired) reality. He was well worth the wait! Thank you, James!

I have had my kitchen in for a year now and I still can’t find any fault with it. I am just as thrilled with it now as I was a year ago. The design works, it looks like new and is still admired. Thanks James. it was and is a wonderful improvement to the house’. Truly James I just love the kitchen and sing your praises all the time.

European Oak Kitchen – Katie C

In 2013 we decided to move our hand built european oak kitchen to a new extension and wanted some matching units and an island made to match. From the initial consultation to delivery James demonstrated professionalism and attention to detail and we were thrilled with the final product and how it matched the units we already had.

Following that in 2014 we commissioned James to build a set of walnut bathroom cabinets and again we were impressed by his reliability, professionalism and the quality of the final product. In 2015 we commissioned bespoke office furniture made from cherry wood. Once again James exceeded our expectations, patiently redoing drawings and designs and working closely with us at every step of the way. We now have a perfectly fitting very smart home office which is a pleasure to work in!

James has just designed and installed a series of shelves and cabinets for our new home office (Oct 2014). We’re delighted with the results. James exceeded the brief and worked with us to accommodate our specific needs and tastes. He consulted with us at every stage and kept us up to date on progress so we never needed to chase for updates. I’m admiring his craftsmanship even as I type this review. Clearly we would recommend him without hesitation. Thank you James.

Hand Painted Kitchen – John K

James Reeve provided us with a superb bespoke kitchen this summer ( 2014 ). Everything about it is brilliant from the initial design through to installation and completion. The craftsmanship in terms of the units and fittings is of the highest standard and the final result is a new, bright and more spacious looking kitchen which is a pleasure to work in.

James project managed the whole process professionally and we were extremely pleased with how smoothly and reliably everything fell into place. The different tradespeople commissioned by James were all of a very high standard of work and reliability. Everything happened in the timescale we agreed and we always felt that we were given clear information and treated with great care and courtesy. James is a great guy to have to provide a service and a product of this excellent quality and we recommend Anderson Reeve unreservedly.

Black Walnut Living Room Furniture – Tina J

I had been looking for a media unit and sideboards for awhile but couldn’t find any to the spec I wanted. I contacted James and after telling him want I needed he drew up some plan, it was exactly what I wanted:-) the furniture is made to the highest quality and the James is incredibly helpful and accommodating. I would not hesitate in using him again or recommending him to some one else.

Alessandro P

We were looking for a dark-wood chest of drawers for our bedroom, but we couldn’t find in the market one good for us, so we decided to go for a bespoke solution. James was excellent in all the stages of the work, from the initial design of the piece of furniture to the very last detail. He was punctual and recommended us the more convenient options. We also asked James to make a pair of bed-side tables with the same wood, and he came out with a very nice design. We really appreciated the professionalism of James and the excellent quality of his work.

Closer Larder Cabinet – N & L Wainwright

About 8 years ago James Reeve supplied and installed a bespoke kitchen for us. We have been completely satisfied with the quality and longevity of the entire kitchen. We have recently had two pieces of bespoke furniture built by James and we are again stunned by the quality and craftsmanship of the pieces. Strongly Recommended

C & T Turner

We commissioned an unusual bespoke Kitchen breakfast bar from Anderson Reeve. James was 100% attentive to our needs and made constructive suggestions and added ideas as we went along, becoming as enthusiastic as we were about the project. The result in stunning American Light Ash is absolutely superb and as fine a piece of craftsmanship as you will see anywhere. I have no hesitation at all in recommending James for any bespoke furniture commissions and certainly we hope to be able to give him more work in the future.

James recently built us two beautiful pieces of furniture for our lounge. Following this we asked him to design and make a hi-fi unit to complete the set. We are absolutely delighted and it is exactly what we wanted and matching the other pieces perfectly. What more could you ask for!!!

K T

We are absolutely delighted with our lounge furniture designed and built by James of Anderson Reeve. James took time to listen to our requirements and submitted designs which we added to at a later date. Nothing was too much trouble for him. The workmanship and finish is beautiful and exceeds our expectations. We would highly recommend him.

Painted Office Furniture – Jane F

We were looking for an individual, quality service to fit our small office cum occasional bedroom and chose James, of Anderson Reeve. Throughout, James was careful to listen to our ideas and was able to translate our vision into the perfect design and build solution. The quality of James’ workmanship and attention to details cannot be faulted. He and his team were 100% reliable and personable.

We appreciated the experience of working with James and felt so confident in his ability that we commissioned a large built in wardrobe in another bedroom at the same time. Again, we are thoroughly delighted with the result. Now I even enjoy putting my clothes away- an unexpected bonus!

Secret Cottage – Karen B

We had a kitchen made by James Reeve a few years ago and continue to be delighted with the result. The craftsmanship is excellent, and the cupboards, drawers,etc., are all as well fitting and solid as the day they were completed. Since then James has been back to make a wall cupboard and some shelves for the kitchen, and also a fitted wardrobe and cupboard in a bedroom.

Show more

James has good customer awareness, pays attention to your needs and can interpret your ideas. He is also able to give good advice and make appropriate suggestions from his own experience. He is very pleasant, completely reliable and trustworthy. We give him a key so he can come and go, as necessary, and get on with the job himself. He is an organised and tidy worker and always cleans up after himself. We have no hesitation in recommending Anderson Reeve. You need look no further for quality bespoke furniture and a thoroughly professional service, from a really talented guy.

Wolds Country Kitchen– Tracey P

We have just had our new kitchen fitted by James and we are thrilled with the end result. James craftsmanship is to an extremely high standard and his attention to detail could not be faulted. James ensures the kitchen is both practical and looks amazing. He listened to what we wanted but also came up with some really good ideas. James is really friendly and easy to have working in your home and we would highly recommend his work.

Church House – Joanne M

Having had designs and quotes from other bespoke kitchen makers we decided to proceed with James as we were highly impressed, throughout the design process, with the fact that James listened to our personal requirements but made well informed suggestions that ultimately enhanced the overall design of the kitchen.

Show more

This left us feeling excited about the prospect of owning a very unique kitchen that would fit with our lifestyle and give the robustness of a fitted kitchen but the look and feel of freestanding furniture. James started and completed the work on schedule. Throughout the time he worked on site he was extremely clean and tidy. As it is a very old property there are no straight walls or 90 degree corners but due to James exemplary care and attention to detail the end result was one of perfection. Overall we cannot recommend James highly enough and now having lived with the kitchen for 18 months the product has stood the test of time and shows the great value James delivers.

Bank House – Nick W

We had an extension approximately 3 years ago, and on the suggestion of a friend, asked James Reeve to visit and suggest a few ideas for our new kitchen. James obviously has the skill and design flair to provide us with a “freestanding” hand built kitchen, using a variety of materials from marble, tulip wood and Cherry. It is now over 3 years since we had the kitchen fitted, and we are still thrilled with the quality of the craftsmanship, and the fact that it was considerably cheaper than the more well known alternatives! I would recommend James Reeve to anybody that wants a quality, individual, kitchen.

Oak Office Library – Ronald G

I have known James, the owner of Anderson Reeve, for several years and he has recenty fitted out a study/library at my home as part of a garage conversion. His attention to detail, identifying customer requirements, producing plans, progress reports and viewings of work in progress along with the quality of his workmanship I would happily say is second to none. James is friendly, courteous and professional in his approach and was a pleasure to work with on the conversion project.

The Orchard – Alistair J

Extremely high quality furniture with an outstanding finish; James takes every care to ensure the finished product is nothing short of perfect. James is nice guy and makes every effort to understand what you want from your kitchen both functionally and aesthetically. James is tidy, he cleans up after himself and takes care so as not to damage existing furniture. I can guarantee that the same quality and service would cost considerably more with a larger more established company.
