Christine Layton - Furniture

Christine Layton

I have been hand making bespoke fine furniture for 11 years. Each piece is unique and made with love

Since re-training as a cabinet maker at the age of 51, I have been making bespoke furniture for private clients for the last 11 years. Until very recently I have been working entirely on commissions, but at the moment I do not have any commission work so I am currently making some small pieces as gifts to be sold at craft fairs and makers markets. The items I am making are for example quality wooden trinket and jewellery boxes, table mats and coasters, candle holders, bath caddies, tea trays and glass and Prosecco or wine holders. Everything is made entirely by me in my small workshop in Caterham, Surrey.

My business has been described as a glorified hobby, because I work entirely on my own. I do not have to make a living at what I do so I am able to charge much less than most other cabinet makers do, but I still make high quality products.

All of my furniture is made from hardwoods and veneers. I design each piece specifically for each client and choose wood which has interesting figuring so that I can make each item as attractive as possible. My furniture is beautiful but also practical.
