Team of bespoke kitchen designers & cabinet makers
Anselm Fraser Furniture has gone from strength to strength. Anselm is now regarded as one of the UK’s leading exponents on the art of furniture making and design. His business now employs 5 full-time bespoke kitchen designers and cabinet makers.
His handmade kitchens combine clean contemporary lines with the traditional, natural beauty of Scottish wood, and his signature blue and copper style has many fans. Anselm and his team have restored some very fine furniture, including the poet William Wordsworth’s bureau.
Bespoke furniture for the modern world
Anselm is heavily influenced by Thomas Chippendale who successfully married traditional skills with the modern world. So despite the generic mass market, Anselm believes that there is still a place for beautiful, bespoke furniture, crafted by experts to an exceptional standard.
The Chippendale International School of Furniture
In 1985, Anselm founded the Chippendale International School of Furniture. He and his team operate the school alongside the furniture business, acting as tutors to the students as well as being furniture makers and furniture restorers.
