QUALITY, PURPOSE & PROPORTIONS
With an appreciation for excellent materials, an eye on traditional craft and a commitment to environmental responsibility, I produce cabinets, furniture and woodwork for residential and contracting clients — each bespoke and personal to those who commission it.
The process begins with conversations, design ideas and carefully sourced wood — the foundations of a great project. Each discussion brings the work into sharper relief and the qualities of the timber will guide many of the key decisions made.
Made by hand in Aberdeenshire, every item of Ross Aitkenhead furniture is crafted with the utmost care and close attention to key details — these are purposeful pieces designed to enhance, complement or add character to the rooms and spaces that they are used in.
Whether it's a set of custom made kitchen cabinets, a home office desk or a centrepiece dining table, each has its own unique importance to a household and the lifestyles of those who live there — and so my clients' trust in the work I do is something I value above all else.
