Who is Craft Furniture?

About Craft Furniture

Craft Furniture manufactures upmarket custom-made furniture with one of the most beautiful products of the natural world – wood.

The raw material is as bespoke as it gets, with its varying colour, texture, lustre and grain. We transform it into something useful that you’ll love for life.

We make solid wood components for the architects who dream up unconventional ideas, the designers who have specific demands, the clients who think laterally, and the property developers who seek solutions to their exacting interior design visions.

Craft Furniture goes above and beyond to see it your way. We’ll customise something to suit your budget and ensure that we deliver on schedule. We pride ourselves on an unsurpassed client experience.

Our History



Spotlight Kitchens add a solid wood dimension to their business and various resources are acquired.



The solid wood division is separated from Spotlight Joinery as Spotlight Furniture with Chris Pichon as operational partner.



Spotlight Furniture is rebranded to Craft Furniture; the new strategies and logo are formalised.



The Excellence Group is established, incorporating a collection of joinery and
manufacturing companies that set benchmarks in innovation, workmanship and product offering.
Craft Furniture is one of these companies.
