Four Corners is a family run Cabinet Makers. With 2 stores in Stratford upon Avon and Broadway we have been handcrafting furniture for many years. All of our furniture has bags of character and is as individual as the trees it has been crafted from. We have ranges of Quaker Oak, Hand Painted and Pine furniture as well as fitted kitchens, fitted wardrobes, fitted living furniture and fitted offices all traditionally crafted by ourselves and, as there is no middle man, our prices represent surprisingly good value despite the fact there’s no melamine or MDF just good old honest to goodness wood!

Many of our customers who use our freestanding bespoke furniture service have a clear idea of what they’d like and yet have been unable to find a Cabinet Maker who can turn their ideas into a reality. Others want to pick our brains and use our expertise. Please do talk to us, we are happy to quote for custom built items that may be completely different to our standard pieces or, a tweak to the size of our usual designs.

Bespoke Fitted Furniture

kitchen furnitureWhatever room your project is for we like to think Four Corners can help. Our designers will visit you in your own home and spend time finding out exactly what you are looking for. We’ll take some detailed measurements and design your furniture for you. If it’s a kitchen you’ll get a detailed plan, CAD mock-ups and a costing. Other rooms we’ll give you a design and a price. 
Once you’ve tweaked the design to your exact needs we’ll then go ahead and craft it for you.

As our motto is: Designed for Living – Built for Life you can be reassured we really do make it to last a lifetime. There are no shortcuts: proper dovetail joints on the drawers, mortice and tenon joints on the framework and, all wood, no chipboard, no MDF.
We employ highly skilled fitters who work for us, we find this gives you continuity and as our fitters work with our furniture week in week out we can honestly say they’re brilliant at what they do! Take a look at the testimonials on our website if you need reassurance.......
We do charge a small fee for our bespoke fitted service. Please contact us for a quote –we’re happy to say though when you go ahead with your bespoke fitted room we’ll deduct the cost from your furniture. (Terms & conditions do apply).
Come and visit the Four Corners stores in Stratford upon Avon and Broadway for a chat with our knowledgeable team and find out what on earth a gingerbread wardrobe really looks like!
