Our Story

We started our company in 1969, and we’ve been on this amazing journey ever since. We’ve mastered our craft, and we’ve become an industry leader, recognized for our excellent services and our world-class furniture. We’ve opened our doors to international markets and shared our work with our friends from Europe and Scandinavia. But we continue to seek and seize opportunities in this market that would help strengthen our reputation as a manufacturer of quality furniture worldwide.

We are dedicated to quality

We specialize in creating fitted furniture solutions and refurbishments. Everything that comes out of our workshop and goes into your home must carry the hallmarks of our business. This has been our reality since we opened in 1969. Thanks to our expert craftsmen with valuable years of experience in this domain, we consistently create bespoke pieces of furniture that will last a lifetime.

We love a good challenge

Focused on creating quality fitted furniture for businesses and organizations of all sizes, we see each project as a new challenge to spark original thinking and increase creativity. Over the years, we’ve worked with a myriad of clients from different industries, all of whom have helped us sharpen our ability to take on diverse fields. Seeing each new project as an opportunity for growth has allowed us to better ourselves and become the best version of ourselves.

We are passionate about working alongside our customers to create ideal products for their organization’s needs. At the same time, we also love the experience we gain from working with other creative professionals from different industries. We’ve had many successful collaborations with European designers and architects, working on a wide range of projects, from bar and restaurant refurbishments to custom-made furniture.

Our attention to detail, our trustworthy service, and our craft have provided us with an excellent reputation both in the UK and abroad.

The John F. White Story

It all started in 1969. John White founded the business as a high-end custom woodworking company, built on traditional skills and values. Nearly half a century later, the world has evolved dramatically — and so has our industry, our clients and our challenge. Yet, our core beliefs remain the same.

Our uniquely diverse team of thinkers and doers have remained committed to our core beliefs: reliability, professionalism and exceptional service. Since we first opened our doors, we’ve been working tirelessly to create quality, bespoke pieces of furniture that will last a lifetime.

We were named after the man who started it all — John F. White. Over 50 years later, our growing team of designers, craftsmen and fitters continue to uphold the level of craftsmanship and quality that JFW has set, which clients have also come to expect from our name.
