B. Sneathen - "My fireplace fender just arrived. It arrived safely and completely intact the result of your company’s extraordinary care in packaging the fender. I took great care in unpacking it and I am absolutely stunned at the beauty and workmanship of the piece. It is, quite simply, a work of art. It is now in place and fits perfectly and I think it greatly enhanced the fireplace and my living room.
Please pass along my thanks to everyone who worked on this. I am very, very pleased with my entire experience with your company. This was my first experience working with a company “across the pond”, and you have been wonderful. I will be sure to pass along your website to all my visitors who are sure to marvel when they see my fender. Thank you very much.

South Carolina - "Our fender seat is so beautiful and we are thrilled that it's a perfect fit!!! The workmanship and attention to detail is superb. It has been such a pleasure working with you that we hate for it to end. You made the seat in just under four weeks and then quickly turned around and shipped it out. I couldn't believe how easily it made it through customs. I ordered my furniture out of storage in the states two weeks ago and the fender arrived first. My new home nows sits with my first piece of furniture in it - the fender seat! We love it. Thank you so much, Tricia and Dick"

New York - "Over the Holiday season, we had many compliments about the fender from friends and relatives who visited us. The warm seat on the fender next to the fireplace was the most popular place in the house!"

We have sent many Fender Seats to the USA & Canada and we would like to assure you that we can make one for you without any complications. The procedure is simple and totally personal; you will be looked after by Martin (construction) and Anne (office).

  • Ask for our color brochure, which includes prices in US dollars and which includes leather samples (or we can use your own fabric or leather if you prefer).
  • On the reverse of the price list is a sketch of a fireplace showing the measurements that we need to ensure a perfect fit. We are on hand to offer advice on measurement and fitting.
  • Once we have the measurement and indication of style and materials, we can then email or post a ground plan and front elevation which confirms the dimensions.
  • We normally need up to six weeks to hand build your fender seat. Allowing for freight etc. it will take approximately seven to eight weeks from order to delivery.
  • The fender seat can be packed in two different ways:
    • In a wooden crate ready to go around your fireplace 'out of the box';
    • Made, then dis-assembled and put into a flat pack - with full instructions on how to assemble (a very simply process)
  • We offer various shipping options including:
    • Delivery to your nearest airport for collection;
    • Delivery direct to your home.
    Orders are usually sent by air freight, but can be sent by sea.
  • It is difficult to give specific shipping costs, but as a rough approximation shipping for a crated fully assembled fender seat would be $600 and for a flat packed one $300. This includes insurance. An additional charge is required for crating, approximately $200, or flat packing, approximately $50. The only extra cost is local taxes which, varying from state to state, are usually 2-3%.
  • We ask for a deposit of 50% on confirmation of your order. We accept payment by all major credit/debit cards (except American Express), check or bank transfer. Final payment is only due when your fender seat arrives with you.

So, if you would like a unique British hand crafted fender seat designed to your exact requirements and delivered to your home please get in touch, we will be delighted to hear from you.
