We manufacture Bespoke Furniture here at Dean Watson. Everything we produce apart from a few select items is made to order by our clients for interior design projects or for those wishing to add a splash of authenticity to their home.

E combine traditional carpentry in our studio with the latest cutting-edge 3D models to ensure all our clients are happy with the prospective build before we put chisel to wood.

Once you have contacted our Studio you will speak with Dean and tell him exactly what you are looking for. Dean will pay you a visit or you can communicate what you want over the telephone or email and share examples of your vision.

We will take all your requirements and specifications and then draw up a plan or model for you to visualise. You can have anything from clever wardrobe storage in odd-shaped rooms or a media wall built to fit a gigantic room. 

We do one-off pieces in addition to working on larger multi-room projects.

Dean designed and made our fantastic audio-visual unit. We had searched shops and online but had found nothing to suit. We were so pleased that friends recommended Dean. His patience at the discussion stage was much appreciated and he kept us so informed during the construction phase and invited us to his workshop to see the work in progress. We now have exactly what we wanted and the quality of the workmanship shines through!

Amazing job with fitted wardrobes in our loft conversion, beautiful quality build. Dean was able to offer a lot of design advice on both the aesthetics and practicalities of the wardrobes which helped maximise use of the awkward spaces. I requested a couple of unusual features and he went out of his way to accommodate these. Dean also devoted a lot of time to talking through design details with me and drawing them up to make sure I was 100% happy before starting. Overall he was an absolute pleasure to work with and I've already recommended him to a couple of friends.

Amazing job. Dean designed a bespoke cabinet design based on our requirements, and was a pleasure to work with at every step. The finished product is gorgeous and really high quality workmanship. A great result we are 100% pleased with. I would definitely invite Dean back again for other projects.

We wanted to transform a small bedroom into a dressing room. We were lucky to discover Dean Watson furniture design via web search. How lucky we were ! From the minute Dean stepped into our home we felt confident that we would achieve what we wanted . Dean led us through his designs with kind thought and the finest detail . I simply cannot recommend him highly enough. Every element of the installation is perfection and precision and I feel honoured to have his craftsmanship in our home . I hope we will be able to have Dean design and install another piece of his work soon .

From the initial phone call I felt that Dean and I were on the same page with what I wanted. I had an idea for a “Contemporary Cottage” style media wall in the living room and I also wanted an alcove in the bedroom fitting to be a built in wardrobe. The drawings and computer generated images didn’t do it justice, when I came home I was absolutely overwhelmed! I have a great functional wardrobe space and the media wall is the focal point I wanted it to be. Dean, you have made a house a home. Thank you so much!

I’m delighted to have had the opportunity of employing such a professional designer/outfitter, after a long search to find someone available to carry out woodwork which after Brexit and the Pandemic had become very difficult I am so pleased I had the fortune of using Dean Watson Furniture who understood my vision from the off, as to what I required to be created. What I liked best of all, was our ongoing communication. The reliable friendly banter cemented trust and faith that the work to be carried out purely from our liaison was understood from both sides. I loved being kept in the loop with regards to the timeline and choice of material selections too. The end result, I couldn’t be happier. The vision I had has been interpreted well. Best of all it’s modern and unique. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Dean and will certainly use again in the not too distant future.

I was looking for a tall boy and came upon Dean's name on Bark. There are some wonderful designs on his website including the one I opted for with the twisted front. He was very helpful when discussing the design, and made videos of the whole process.The top drawers have plush lined trays for jewellery, and plain wooden ones for make up. What looks like the bottom 2 drawers is in fact one. I'm thrilled with it.

Dean recently built a media unit for our living room and we're so happy with the finished result, it's even better than we imagined it would be. Dean was very professional, thorough and patient when we we're deliberating over every last thing i.e. the colours to go for. He was a perfectionist and needed to make sure every last detail was right. We can't fault him and the amazing work he has done for us. We're now getting our office furniture and wardrobes done through Dean. He comes highly recommended by us.

Dean was super conscientious and made an excellent job of our porch bench. The attention to detail was spot on, adding thoughtful details like hiding the fixings. His communication was great, providing sketches, drawings and modelled views so that we agreed everything up front. I couldn’t recommend him more.

We are absolutely delighted with the two customised side tables which Dean made for us. We could not rate him more highly.
