When we decided to convert our garage to a self-contained space for friends to stay at our seaside house, we thought long and hard about making the space work for us. We got the conversion right - everything fitted in and provided all that was needed. We then thought about the style of what we call The Boathouse and knew that we wanted a combination of warmth and rustic charm as well as efficiency and storage space, Vicki specially designed a unit for us made up of two cupboards topped by long scaffold boards which provides storage and a surface for use as a desk, dressing table, or eating space. It fits perfectly in the space and looks just right and has been the subject of compliments from all our guests. Vicki delivered in very good time and produced a lovely piece of furniture to our exact requirements.

I had spent months searching garden centres for a wooden love seat, but found nothing that I liked, or of any good quality. I contacted Vicki to ask if it was something she could make for me, and from that point, she took the project under her wing, designed me a seat from a small a brief given by myself, and even gave me options on a particular finish and stain colour. Thank you for making my perfect garden love seat into a reality!
Perfect table for our lifestyle! Fabulous paintwork, big enough for family & friend occasions and very solid. Great design element as on wheels which means we can relocate in the garden getting the best of the sunshine!!! Thank you Vicki!!!

What a talent, thank you so much for making two beautiful pieces of furniture for me! Everyone who sees them asks them where I got them from and compliment the design. You've managed to incorporate all of my practical requirements, created something beautiful and been incredibly helpful throughout the process!

I wanted something different for my friend's birthday gift. The friend in question takes particular pride in her home and she loves original items that tell a kind of silent story. Through word of mouth, I heard about Brand Designs and, having checked out the website, decided to call Vicki to see what was possible. Vicki asked a number of questions, all designed to find out about my friend and her home, and together we came up with a gift idea - although I was involved with the process, it was really down to Vicki's creative eye! I presented my friend with a beautifully handcrafted and personalised tray and her face burst into the biggest smile. Not only did Vicki select the wood down to my friend's taste (she somehow found a piece of wood with natural purple colouring - my friend's favourite colour!) but she also included an array of candles, adding an extra personal touch! For truly natural and unique pieces, I would strongly suggest you check out Vicki's work.
I have been looking for a cupboard for a while to give me more storage however it had to fit into quite a small space. Also I wanted something that was not mass produced. It's been a search and then I met Vicki. The whole process has been great; the beginning (explaining what I wanted and then swapping ideas, exploring options with Vicki) to the end. Just look at my beautiful cupboard and my other gorgeous purchases; Vicki is a genius with old bits of wood. She also makes a cracking cup of tea. :)

We approached Vicki having seen her some items she made for a friend. After some Instagram stalking we got in touch in the hope that Vicki could help fill some space in our living room. We we’re in need of a side table and, with the recent addition of a baby to our family, a trunk to store all of the new toys and play mats. We measured up the spaces expecting to have restricted measurements sent back but, during a visit to the Brand Designs workshop we were delighted to hear that we could have the items made exactly how we wanted. Throughout the process Vicki was brilliant, from allowing us to tweak the design (making the side table a nest of tables), through to choosing the final finishes and metal work. We couldn't have asked for more and are delighted with the end result. We certainly know where to turn should we be in need of any bespoke items in future.
I am delighted with the mirror, just the job for the swimming pool hut.
You took great care, to make sure that, I got exactly what I wanted.

I love my small rustic coffee table which fits beautifully in my Suffolk (nearly seaside), cottage. The bleached colours look great in the conservatory and fit perfectly with my chalk painted cane chairs. To order the coffee table to size was so useful as the space was limited.
Thanks Vicki for a great job!!
I have recently purchased a storage chest to be used as toy box for my twin grand- daughters. I am absolutely delighted with it, especially as Vicki made it to my exact dimensions. The toy box is beautifully crafted and finished with great attention to detail and also safe for child use.
This is a versatile storage chest that I am sure will be used for many many years to come. Thank you Vicki.

As an excited first time aunt, I wanted to give my brother and sister a thoughtful and long-lasting present for my nephew. A toy trunk seemed to be an appropriate present, but the one that was made for me bespoke by Brand Designs blew any toy trunk I have ever seen clean out of the water. I was able to choose the exact colours, type of wood, size to what would suit its owners. It was to such a high quality and was better than I could have thought possible! I can’t wait to see my nephew grow up with his toy trunk!
We are over the moon with our bespoke dining table designed and handmade by Vicki Brand. We found Vicki to be polite, professional and accommodating at all times. We were kept up to date with the progression with regularly emailed draft drawings and photos of the table which was delivered to us within the timescale promised. I would confidently recommend Vicki to anyone who is looking for a beautiful product and excellent customer care.

Helvetica Light is an easy to read font, with tall and narrow letters, that works well on almost every site.

Vicki did an amazing job of creating a beautiful wooden crate for our wedding. After seeing some of her designs on her Facebook page I liked the rustic feel of her work so I asked if she could make something. She turned it around in no time and knew exactly what I was after. I then saw a brilliant idea for a friends birthday which involved framing a world map, again she whipped this up in a matter of days, and hand delivered both items to me with a few weeks of me asking. I can't wait to see what she has in store next!
I am delighted to have received my chalkboards made by Brand Designs, they are of wonderful quality, beautifully made and we have had so many admiring comments! I am in fact so happy with these two items that I have now placed an order for a childrens toy box and I simply cannot wait for it to arrive!

I fell in love with Vicki’s furniture when I first saw a collection at an exhibition. What drew me to them was that they were unique and I also love the fact that she uses recycled materials. So when I moved into a new house a couple of months ago Vicky made a kitchen table and book shelves for me and they both look amazing! In addition to being talented, Vicki is very nice and nothing was too much trouble, even though I kept changing my mind about things in the process. If you want bespoke, unique and beautiful furniture, look no further.
