“If you are looking for a sensitive, talented and passionate craftsman, look no further. Tim applied precision and creativity to wonderful pieces of wood to create a unique and eye-catching piece. Tim was a joy to discuss ideas with and once we established the intended uses and size, he devised the ingenious personalised form of our combined initials for the legs. The process as a customer was a pleasure and I took home a beautiful 'family heirloom'. This small table is a veritable objet d'art.”
Rosemary Benson-Bunch, Gloucestershire
"We have used Rickard Furniture many times over the years and are always happy to recommend them. They are skilled and versatile, good communicators and nothing is too much trouble. We are particularly pleased with our kitchen island and the panelling to our stairwell is a daily delight."
James & Michelle, West Sussex
"Excellent furniture maker with great attention to detail. We needed a bespoke kitchen unit (cupboard with fiddly drawers) for an unusual location in our kitchen. Rickard Furniture took us from initial drawings and selection of wood to produce a beautiful pine unit that fits brilliantly in the space. Max is really passionate about his furniture making. We were very happy with the RF work and have subsequently employed them again."
Dr J Fleming, Sussex
"Rickard Furniture managed to achieve the impossible, creating a beautiful ‘new’ table by re-making an old table which had been ‘got at’.
With amazing attention to detail, Max faithfully retained the character of the ‘old’ table, combining the weathered tabletop with new legs that he designed to echo the style of the old.
Clear communication at every step of the design process, skilled craftsmanship, great value for money and a brilliant result: we love our new ‘old’ table!"
Sam Phillips, West Sussex
