On a personal recommendation we recently used the services of Northmark to build some cabinets in our conservatory which also provide seating and an a/v housing area. We had a rough plan drafted in advance which Ian used, but helped us with some modifications and alternative ideas that we would never have considered. Throughout the period of making the furniture Ian kept us informed of his progress and even returned to our home to re-check dimensions and specifications.  Ian fitted the cabinets on the agreed date and time and left no mess and worked effortlessly to get the task completed.  The cabinets that he has created are of exceptional quality and to the exact specifications that we agreed upon. I can quite honestly say that I would recommend Ian to any of my friends or acquaintances who require quality bespoke furniture making by a true craftsman.

From the original idea through the design process to the end result Ian was totally professional. I would be more than happy to recommend his work. Ian took on board what I required from the built in furniture and produced suggestions and designs to suit. I was able to see the furniture in production and the installation was completed efficiently and with minimum disruption The end result is a splendid piece of furniture and a very satisfied customer.

Outstanding craftmanship coupled with a unique ability to interpret minimal ideas into furniture and fittings ideally suited to my old listed cottage.

We are Elijah Slocum a handmade traditional furniture company based in Los Angeles, California specialising in sevicing the most particular clients in the USA. We recently had a really complex job at the Sohnen residence on the Cecil B. DeMille estate where only the very best would be deemed good enough. We searched for the finest craftsman in the world and truly believe we found him. Each person at Elijah Slocum, Inc. stands in awe at Ian's accomplishment at the Sohen residence. From a concept and a few measurements, we watched the fruition of Ian's work over a 2 week period. We are very impressed indeed! Far more importantly, the clients, Mr and Mrs Sohnen could not be more pleased with Ian's work. His excellence makes all of us at Elijah Slocum, Inc. look very good and for that we are in his debt.
