Rupert Bevan Ltd. designs, makes and finishes high end bespoke furniture and interior finishes for the most renowned Interior Designers as well as working directly with private clients. Rupert Bevan trained as a master gilder and went on to start his own business as a gilder and antique furniture restorer over 20 years ago. This small but successful business gradually developed into the thriving fine bespoke furniture and interior finishes company it is today. Though the focus has long since moved away from restoring antiques, a strong background in gilding and restoration gives the company a unique understanding of different materials and finishes, their uses and their applications in furniture. It has also provided a familiarity with styles of furniture from the 16th Century right through to the present day; a depth of knowledge and understanding unrivalled within the industry.
Over the years we have worked with the biggest names in British interior design as we ll as private clients. We manage all stages of the furniture commissioning process, from inspirational sketch design to the production of working drawings; from samples to hand-finishing - never failing to achieve the perfect result. We appreciate the challenging tasks ahead of an interior designer in working to deadlines and managing their client's expectations, and we pride ourselves on the very personal service we deliver. Each step of the process is carefully managed by us so that the client feels informed and involved, and to ensure the end product is always as expected and desired. Our experience in working within the interiors industry means that we understand and speak the same language as BIID members. Often it is a daunting process to even consider commissioning a piece of furniture. As an Industry partner, we believe we can offer BIID members a valuable insight into the process of furniture making; advising how to approach commissioning furniture and informing about how t o get the most out of your designer and maker, and on avoiding common mistakes. As well as our furniture design and making skills, we are expert interior finishes and can offer a truly unique input to any interior design scheme.
