Howard Marshall and Robert Entwistle the founder of Thomas & Thomas have between them over 60 years of experience in bespoke kitchen and furniture design and manufacturing.

Having this wealth of knowledge and experience from the two directors of the company has been instrumental in the success of Thomas & Thomas. We have gained a reputation for quality and design. Our attention to detail and service, from the client’s initial contact through the whole design and installation by our own fitting team of time served cabinet makers. 

Thomas & Thomas design philosophy stems from an understanding of the role of the kitchen within modern family life. Today’s lifestyle demands the kitchen be ‘a room to be lived in’. No longer is the kitchen a purely functional setting for mere culinary preparation and storage, but instead the living and social hub of the home.

This fundamental understanding of the client lifestyle allows a Thomas & Thomas design to fulfil the role of providing seamless practicality and striking beauty within your home.

The Thomas & Thomas design experience begins with a designer visiting your home. During this visit we aim to grasp not only the architectural properties of your space, but more importantly understand how you want to interact with your kitchen.

As is demanded by the nature of the interior of a family home, our design process is unashamedly personal; through a comprehension of a family dynamic on a person to person level, our designers can begin to conceive a space tailored for your family. The designs process is not limited to just the cabinets we also prepare fully specified plans for the plumber, electrician and Architect. Recommended lighting positions are also part of the service, to ensure you create the correct lighting for preparation and entertaining.

Quality is arbitrary, it can mean something functions for years, or simply doesn’t break when you drop it. To us quality means much more than this, quality is a refinement of what you expect from a product; it is the tingle you get when you run your hand along one of our work surfaces or the feeling satisfaction when entering a Thomas & Thomas designed room.

To ensure this level of quality, all of our bespoke furniture is handmade in England and fitted by our experienced cabinetmakers. Your designer will personally oversee every step of the creation and production of your furniture, down to the handpicking of pieces of wood and granite, specific for your design. Our service encompasses so much more than the design of your bespoke furniture, we work with you on colour, textures and finished for the whole room.

The foundation for a Thomas & Thomas design is consideration; consideration of beauty, consideration of your family life. Alongside this comes integrity, meaning every component of your kitchen is truly utilised to enhance your own experience of your own home.

It is the relationship that Robert & Howard build with clients thought out the whole design experience, coupled with our quality and expertise that ensure commissioning Thomas & Thomas is an enjoyable design experience.

It is these qualities that have built Thomas & Thomas into a company that clients trust with their homes.

Visit one of our showrooms and see the quality and experience the service and you will realise why so many of our client recommend us to their friends and family.
