Silks Designs Kent Ltd was established in 1986, our aim was to provide the high quality furniture and service to our valued customers. As a family business, we wanted to provide a local and truly bespoke design and manufacturing facility, combining the best of traditional craftsmanship and innovative design with the latest in digital technology, we think we have exceeded all expectations.
Our aim is simple; we are committed to making custom furniture a joy from start to finish. Sometimes seen as an overwhelming task of having a bespoke kitchen, bedroom or study designed, manufactured and fitted can be considered a daunting prospect when in fact it should be a joy, we aim to make it just that a joy.
All our furniture is genuinely bespoke and handmade in our Kent based factory and made to your exact specification. Your design is not restricted by standard unit sizes or specific ranges, which allows you the choice of traditional, contemporary, rustic or minimalist. The finish can be hand sprayed, varnished and lacquered or hand painted; your choices are endless.
Every project regardless of scale will be afforded the same enthusiasm and care, be it a single piece of furniture or an entire house. Silks have the ability to execute large scale projects, working regularly with local Property Developers and Architects. Regardless of the project size you will still find a dedicated and personal service that is flexibile and more often associated with smaller companies.
An expert designer will work with you throughout your project, from the first meeting to completion of your project. Come and discuss your thoughts over a cup of coffee in our spacious showroom which will provide the inspiration you are looking for.
The initial meeting with your furniture designer can be arranged, either at your home or in our showroom, where a detailed brief is taken and ideas discussed. Your designer will produce plans and 3D images for your project using the latest Arti Cad software, the virtual images will show you how the finished project will look before any work commences.
Our service can be extended to suggesting changes to your room such as removing a wall or re-positioning a door to have dramatic effect on the final design.
We are proud to announce our recent acquisition of a new modern unit in Tunbridge Wells that has allowed us to expand our manufacturing facilities as well as a brand new fully fitted kitchen showroom with working Miele appliances including the latest “M” touch, plus a fully fitted bedroom showroom. We use the latest CNC & Digital cutting equipment combined with traditional joinery methods such as dove-tailed joints to ensure your furniture lasts a lifetime.
We have our own “in house” state of the art spray centre, our experts can finish your furniture in a sprayed colour of your choice, Stain, Burnish, lacquer clear or tinted or primed only ready to hand paint on site.
Our own “in house” manufacturing facility allows for hand made British craftsmanship and means you can say with pride, my kitchen,bedroom and/or bathroom really was made in Britain.
The fitting of your furniture is carried out by professional staff, fully trained and insured. We also have an extensive team of trusted sub-contractors whom we have worked with over many years, including small build projects, which includes plumbing, electrics,carpentry, flooring and carpets, audio visual installations and decorating as required.
