Hugh,

On behalf of Du Vin Bouchers Wine Bar Linlithgow.

We wish to thank you for the fabulous work undertaken on manufacturing our food platter stands They are marvellous – you have been so professional, courteous and have communicated well through the entire process considering the design being agreed over a few glasses of wine. We would not hesitate to recommend you, or use your services again.

Just taken delivery of the jewellery box. Can’t thank you enough Hugh, it’s a very fine piece. The level of detail is outstanding, I highly recommend your craftsmanship. I’m already thinking of what next to commission!

We've never commissioned a custom piece of furniture before and there was a certain amount of trepidation involved in doing so. However the whole process has been fun and being able to describe exactly what we needed and take Hugh's advice on design details, construction and finish has been a pleasure.

Hugh really went out of his way to get every detail right and we couldn't be happier with the end result - the quality is superb, it fits perfectly within the room and the railway fits perfectly within it.

We asked Hugh at Calanta to design and build a desk for our daughter's bedroom and are delighted with the finished piece. It's exactly as we described at the outset with quality wood and incredible attention to detail - just what we'd hoped for with the hand crafting and local materials.

Hugh was meticulous and considerate throughout this project. We felt thoroughly engaged in how the design would meet our spec, the choice of finishes and updates on progress from the workshop.

I would certainly recommend Calanta Furniture for high quality, bespoke pieces.

Hi Hugh - thought you'd like to know that our daughter says the desk you built was her best Christmas present! Thank you.
