Our Story

The company was founded in 2015 by Joseph Irving and Nicholas Sykes, two craftsmen who met while studying furniture design and manufacture at the world-renowned West Dean College. After developing and refining their skills over a combined 20-year period, the partners set up the company with a very clear vision, as Jo explains: “From the outset our ambition has been to push the boundaries in design and manufacture, producing hand-crafted, bespoke items using quality materials and innovative techniques.”
That philosophy translates into everything the partners do, as Nick stresses: “We are passionate about precision and high quality craftsmanship and only use ethically-sourced timber from responsible UK saw mills. Consequently we are able to give our clients a professional and personalised service.”

Irving Sykes is a high end furniture and kitchen manufacturer, specialising in fine furniture, hand made kitchens and interiors based in Bristol. We have a dedicated team of furniture designers, cabinet-makers and finishers.

Inspired by early 18th century design through to Arts and Crafts and contemporary cabinet making, we offer a varied array of design and making using traditional hand craft techniques. Whether you are looking for a fine detailed one off piece of furniture or a complex kitchen design for your home or a full house conversion, we will ensure that you receive a professional and personal service delivering the highest quality interior furniture.


Irving sykes fine furniture is made by hand using traditional craft skills, including mortise and tenon joints and dovetailed drawer construction. We use a collection of prised materials including hand picked veneers through to solid timbers. Our understanding of the materials we use and construction techniques is of the finest quality.

All of our kitchen carcasses are made from a high quality oak veneered substrate. Our frames and doors are made from either tulip wood with a paint finish sprayed in a colour of your choice. We can match precisely to any colour chart. Our doors are hinged with a five pin hinge, making sure there is no movement in the doors. Our drawers are made from solid Oak, with dovetailed joint construction, giving the strongest joint and fine detailed finish.

We are passionate about using the best materials on the market. We only use ethically sourced timber from responsible UK saw mills.
