I am Katie, I am the founder of River Bespoke. Our story all started when myself and my husband Tim spent 3 years lovingly renovating our period home in Cambridge. We were fed up with the monotony of a 9 to 5 life and the strains of Tim travelling all over the world for his businesses, so we decided to consider a move to Norfolk, a place that we have always loved. Being close to the countryside and able to enjoy peace and tranquillity was an exciting prospect for us.

In April 2019 we decided to make it happen and we purchased a house in Norfolk, remote with amazing views and also fairly modern, quite different from our Grade II* listed house in Cambridge. We immediately started updating it to fit our style and family life and as always, not wanting to settle for high street products, we started designing and making our own furniture, bespoke shelving and home accessories so we could achieve the beautiful and unique finish we wanted. People have always commented on our style and furniture and how beautiful it was, but it wasn’t until we had our kitchen fitted and received comments from numerous professionals about some shelves we had made, that I decided to take a huge leap of faith and start River Bespoke so that others could also enjoy our ideas.

Ethos and style

Norfolk is home to many highly talented artisans which has meant that all aspects of our bespoke furniture manufacture is carried out locally giving us great control over the quality of every piece that we deliver.

We need this quality combined with attention to detail as there’s nowhere to hide with our designs; they reflect clean and simple elegance. Fussy and complicated isn’t our style, simplicity means that all of our pieces work in modern and more traditional interiors.

Working with us

We pride ourselves on the working process we have developed and work tirelessly in the design stages to ensure that everything is perfect prior to manufacture. We are happy to send samples and will keep adjusting the design and finishes until we get it right. Once everything is agreed and signed off, we will keep you updated with progress and photos as your furniture comes to life. Finally, your piece will be delivered using a white glove delivery service. It will be delivered to your room of choice and all packaging will be removed.

I am thrilled with all the feedback I have had since starting the business, we really do try to go above and beyond to provide each and every client with a truly memorable experience.

We are a bespoke furniture company so if you don’t see exactly what you are looking for then please get in touch to discuss your requirements.

Really looking forward to working with you.
