TUDOR OAK was founded about 50 years ago as a bespoke furniture maker.

Our History

The first pieces carrying the name of Tudor Oak were produced in a garage, in Kent, in 1969 and over the following few years the brand became synonymous with high quality and meticulous attention to detail.

Within a few years, the company became known not only in Kent, but also nationwide. In the mid-70s we started exporting to Holland, Belgium, Switzerland, Germany and Norway.

Many fine English cabinet-makers started their career at Tudor Oak; some stayed with us and helped create numerous beautiful furniture pieces; others went on to form their own companies, using the skills and experience gained here. So it is fair to say that Tudor Oak spawned its own generation of fine cabinet makers, carrying the torch for the future. Our reputation is recognised across England and respected not only by our clients, but by our competitors.

Our workshops are still based in Kent, in a picturesque village of Boughton Monchelsea, just outside of Maidstone.  Beautiful wooden furniture in many styles, handcrafted by our skilled masters, has been serving generations of clients for over 45 years.  

Our files contain more than 500 different designs and drawings, from classic oak side tables and sideboards to bespoke units to fit a home cinema and dining tables that are over 40 feet long. Our furniture and joinery are made to last and to serve generations.

Our Ethos

Only the best oak timber is used to produce Tudor Oak furniture and joinery; as the name suggest, we mainly use English or European Oak (also known by its Latin name, Quercus Robur), but have a number of pieces produced in European Walnut, Cherry and Yew. The oak that we use comes from sustainable sources and is PEFC and FSC certified.  We don’t believe in using cheap overseas labour therefore our entire production process is based in the UK where we can ensure good working conditions and support for our staff.

We use many traditional methods and our polishing process has taken years to perfect and is unique to the company.

Tudor Oak is one of the oldest makers of handmade furniture, and one of only a few remaining in England. There are not many companies of this class left in this country, where such attention is paid to the production process from start to finish – from the original design conception, initial drawings, all the way to the final touches, such as brasswork. We are proud to carry on the traditions of fine English cabinet-making made famous by Chippendale, Hepplewhite and Sheraton; we are putting our own original stamp on it, marrying the traditional designs with modern functionality.

Our Team

Our highly skilled team of wood machinists, sawyers, cabinet-makers, carvers, gilders and French polishers are the best in the business.  Many started here as apprentices and continued to work and develop their skills at making furniture and joinery in the traditional way.

Tudor Oak craftsmen and the support staff are experienced, knowledgeable and passionate people, who take inspiration from history and believe that good design and high quality of craftsmanship should and can complement modern living. We are always looking to perfect our designs and listen carefully to our customers’ feedback. Over the years, we have produced a number of specials, some of which became our catalogue items. Moving with the times, we have introduced new collections to reflect modern tastes. Our Aura and Parsonage collections were warmly received and won praise for their creative use of character oak.

We take part in UK and international trade shows and exhibitions, to gain new perspectives and generate fresh ideas. The company constantly expands its distribution range and looks for new partners here and abroad.

Our clients are comfortable knowing that the furniture is produced from carefully sources and prepared timber, and individually quality controlled to the highest standard. That is why they travel from all over the country and Europe to visit us in the beautiful Garden of England.

In the world of flat-packed identikit imported furniture, it is still possible to own a truly unique piece. We are happy to fly the flag for truly British manufacturing, producing quintessentially English furniture that is made to last. Our workshop doors are always open to visitors, interested in learning how each masterpiece is created.
