History

 

Our heritage in furniture-making dates back to 1918 when William Brayer opened his workshop in Shoreditch, East London. A fine cabinet maker and a student of the arts & craft movement, he quickly became a respected designer and skilled maker of fine furniture.

Over the years, the knowledge, skills and techniques of each of the master craftsmen who have carried on this family tradition have been passed down from generation to generation, right up to the present day.

And so, four generations later, it is William’s great grandson, Barry, who is keeping the tradition of furniture making alive with Brayer Design, named in celebration of this family heritage.

Today, Brayer Design specialises in beautiful bespoke kitchen cabinets, fitted bedroom and audio visual furniture as well as the design, build, and installation of custom-made cabinetry for libraries, cinema and wine rooms to suit the requirements of the modern home.

We’re so proud that almost 100 years on from the opening of Bill Brayer’s workshop in East London, our inherited and nurtured talents for cabinet-making – along with our attention to detail and excellent service – have ensured that the Brayer name continues to be recognised for remarkable quality and outstanding design.


We’d love to hear from you.
