The Design Process

The name Michael Stephenson has become synonymous with the individuality and gilt edge standards of Herrington Gate Furniture.

As original company founder nearly 20 years ago, Michael still injects the same creativity, and maintains the same personal interest in every project that the company handles, no matter how large or small.

Michael's design and the team's carpentry skills are still at the core of this bespoke interior business, and from a newly built in-house designed manufacturing base, Herrington Gate Furniture now boasts one of the most technically advanced production facilities anywhere in the UK. Herrington Gate Furniture is Michael Stephenson, and the creativity of his Design Team, and the skills of his specialist carpentry and installation teams are the core of this totally unique architectural interior furniture and design business.

Dealing with Michael and the team, from initial discussions to project completion, is a smooth and stress-free experience with the whole process being uniquely tailored to each client.

He and the Design Team work tirelessly to get to know the client... to understand their desires and expectations... and in the achievement of these goals, they will use their extensive understanding of the marketplace to investigate and research timbers, materials, fabrics, fitments and period detailing, to create an authentic match to the material needs of the client, and the Architectural characteristics of the property... supported by an ethos of attention to detail without compromise.

Design Drawings are developed using Computer Aided Design facilities. Concept drawings, finished elevations, or specific detailing can be emailed anywhere in the world to better facilitate the decision-making process. Detailed computer generated imagery (Cgi’s), can also be produced to fully communicate the overall and detailed effect of a finished design, so there are no disappointments - only projects to be proud of.

Our design team is confident and experienced in dealing with architects, builders and other trades so can help a project flow seamlessly from initial dreams and sketches through to a beautiful, and very real, finished product.
