How I’ve spent my time in lockdown

posted in: Uncategorized 0

First of all, I hope you are all well and keeping safe. You may have been able to continue working from home during the past few weeks or you may have been furloughed during these difficult times.

I’ve been lucky enough to go to my workshop where I’ve been working on my own. I’ve managed to improve on my paintings and now feel that my style has developed to the point that I’d like to share them here.

I’ve started using charcoal along with acrylic and paint on linen canvas. I prefer to paint on fairly large canvases – around 90 x 90 cm – and like to give them the finished look with a beech frame.

Let me know what you think of them! Until we can get back to work properly, I’ll continue to develop and experiment.

How to choose the best partner for handmade furniture London

posted in: blog 0

If you are moving into a new home, looking to make a renovation, or you’re advising a client who is doing either of these, then you may be looking for handmade furniture London that can serve as the main centrepiece in your home (or maybe office) that will be the envy of all visitors. Novita Furniture is one of the reputable businesses that offer such services in making high quality customised furniture. Our fine craftsmen value top quality services and professionalism in dealing with every project.

Before you pick up the phone or send that email, here are some guidelines you could follow when dealing with bespoke services:

New handmade furniture in LondonThe Maker

Before anything else, you should know which furniture makers in London have a reputation for being the best in terms of design and manufacture. These days it’s relatively easy to do this via internet searches and looking at the handmade furniture makers’ websites. Fortunately for you, Novita Furniture prides itself on premium services with their accompanying reputation and credibility.

The End Use

Naturally you need to know the sort of piece/s you’re looking for. Often it’s that one special item of handmade furniture that will be the focal point in the room in which it’s placed. Certainly the designer/furniture maker can give you guidelines and advice, but usually it’s best to come with some idea as to what purpose the piece will have in your home.

Define the space

Most homes are restricted in terms of available space for the new pieces of handmade furniture. If you’re moving to a new home, you are in a good position to define the layout of each room and to decide on furniture that you might not have been able to buy in the past. If you’re simply replacing existing items, then you’re likely to be more restricted but that’s a job for the designer. As an example, circular tables are perfect for small, confined spaces, while rectangular pieces of bespoke dining tables in London are better for big, but narrow spaces in your home.

Define the style

As well as identifying what space you have for the handmade furniture, it would be helpful to understand the style you’d like – contemporary or traditional? Blending in to the existing furniture or being a stand-alone piece that acts as a focal point? What materials will you choose – timber/metal/glass/marble? Will it be upholstered in a plain or patterned fabric? So many decisions to be made – but your chosen craftsman or woman will be able to help you.

What are you waiting for?

Now that you’ve done your research in terms of knowing what you want and where you want it to fit into your home, you need look no further for the best partner to help with the design and manufacture of that handmade piece of furniture in London!

Bespoke furniture – satisfies our appetite for creativity

posted in: blog 0

We make a lot of furniture for our clients and in fact have several pieces now in our showroom that are in our standard collection. All our furniture is hand-made, whether bespoke or pre-designed. But we really love making bespoke items for our clients in London and elsewhere.

What is it that we particularly enjoy about making bespoke furniture? The main thing is to have a concept or idea and then see it make shape and come to fruition in the form of a beautiful, hand-crafted sofa, chair, sideboard ….

The satisfaction derived is enormous. Like a piece of art, watching the creation that starts with raw materials – in the case of furniture, with timber – and seeing it take shape into the piece that we had imagined in our mind’s eye, is sometimes just short of a miracle!

When we work with our clients, either interior designers or private individuals, we are sometimes given carte blanche to make a beautiful, hand-made bespoke item. All that they ask is that it fits the space available and matches the existing spirit of design in the room.

On other occasions, the client has a definite idea in their mind as to what they want or need and we will work together to modify a design and end up with a bespoke item that is lovingly made and lovingly appreciated.

Whatever the process, we ensure each bespoke piece of furniture is tailored perfectly to you/your client and your home. We work very hard to reach this result and with experience, skill and dedication from all at the Novita team, we pride ourselves in achieving the finest quality for our clients.

We encourage our clients to discuss their requirements with us so we know exactly what they want the final bespoke item of furniture to look like and what its purpose will be. So please contact us the next time you want to be inspired by Isaac and the team here at Novita Furniture in London.

Call Isaac on 07837 709276 or Helen on 020 3532 0704 – or send us an email to We’d love to work with you to make that very special hand-made bespoke piece.

Milan’s Salone del Mobile to London’s Decorex

posted in: Star Article 0

International luxury furniture design shows are where young and established designers and brands display their latest offerings. We focus on two of the biggest and best this year – Milan’s Salone del Mobile and the UK’s Decorex.

Furniture Design – Milan’s Salone del to London’s DecorexMilan’s show acts as a barometer for current and future trends in design. The Decorex team itself visited Milan for their Salone del Mobile show in April, to check out which trends are set to unfold during 2018. They found newcomer designers as well as more established names and discovered a world of design and luxury as exciting as any previous year – and quite possibly more so.

One of the biggest things that stood out this year was the turnout, due mainly to the current popularity of contemporary design¹. Visitors came to experience exhibitions and product launches from all over the world.

Amongst the fastest growing trends that were identified at Milan was the idea of purchasing Ready-to-buy products. As social media ramps up the immediacy of purchasing that which we see, so exhibitors were offering products that were ready to order or even to purchase then and there.

So now to Decorex, to be held as usual in September at Syon Park. As at Milan, emerging talent will meet established names more seamlessly than ever, with the promise of exquisite interiors enveloping each visitor from the moment they step inside.

This year Decorex is offering a ‘carte blanche’ – the concept will explore how an empty space can celebrate a new beginning, a chance to create something beautiful in the way that Decorex and its exhibitors do each year.

A Great Place to Find the latest trends of Luxury Furniture Design & Handmade Furniture London

The show promises to excite and inspire us and we are very much looking forward to visiting Syon Park in September.
