Distinctive furniture begins in the imagination. Not in the workshop or timber yard, showroom or boardroom. The imagination is where ideas begin, take shape and emerge, in response to practical needs or an emotional desire for something new, or more traditional, more personal, or simply different.
The imagination you'll find at work in 1718 Ltd is original, dynamic and creative. Better still, our ideas are empowered with a lifetime's experience of techniques, technology and materials. We are outstandingly well equipped to transform client desires and concepts into realities in ways that surprise and thrill as well as function.
We love our clients to participate and collaborate, and share in the creative process, should you care to - after all, it's your dreams we are making come true.
"imagination is more important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world". - Albert Einstein
Stage 1 - Discovery
Our Journey begins ...
... with your idea, problem or challenge. Your own concept can be fully formed to the last millimetre, or a vague suggestion: we can work from anywhere on the creative spectrum. After visiting you on-site, if necessary, we'll thoroughly discuss your thoughts and add our own suggestions.
Stage 2 - Participation
In allying our imagination and experience with the vision and needs of our clients, we can together create genuinely original, and individual furniture.
We love collaborating with clients throughout the whole design process including selection of materials and finishes, before revealing the design rendered in photo-realistic 3D images for approval.
Stage 3 - Development
Our commitment to British craftsmanship of the highest order is total. No matter the concept, be it traditional, radical, contemporary or timeless; whatever the materials and techniques required, our crafts will produce an outstanding piece using skills honed over the years whilst passing on the benefits to the next generation.
Stage 4 - Delivery
We arrange professional delivery and installation of every piece. Safely and on time, our furniture and accessories have reached destinations across the United Kingdom, Europe, the Middle East, the Far East and the United States of America. We can attend on-site to ensure your furniture is perfectly installed, and to be certain that you are happy with every aspect of your journey.
