Bigger than one man...

It may be my name on the sign, but Howard Wilson Robinson is not only a combined experience of many years and many trades, but many people. 

Having a trusted network of skilled craftsmen, across joinery, painting, installation and appliances, means that I can concentrate on what I do best, knowing every step is carefully looked after by best in the business.

Communication is key to smooth running of this network, and this is also key to our relationship with our clients. We talk often and meet regularly to ensure a cohesive result that everyone is happy with. And we think the work speaks for itself - every picture on this website, is a product of this process, and represents a very happy customer.

 

Hand crafted. Hand drawn

All design work is done by hand and copied by dye-line to produce the traditional 'Blue Print'. I find that the character of the designer transfers beautifully from head, to hand, to paper. Our clients are constantly delighted to see that I still find the time and passion to draw and design on paper. I’ve always enjoyed this traditional design process, and get immense satisfaction from my drawings, and seeing them transformed from paper to completion is still a little piece of magic. 

 

 

An old antique...

After having studied furniture making under the watchful eye of a former pupil of Edward Barnsley, one of the last great cabinet makers who made furniture for the Royal household, I went on to work as a woodworker and joiner for 5 years, doing everything from hanging doors and making cabinets to building conservatories and loft conversions.

I then went on to restore antiques, learning extensive delicate woodworking and finishing techniques including french polishing. This period re-ignited my love for classical furniture and spurred me on to delve back into the world of design.

 

Robinson & Cornish

Years later I co-founded Robinson and Cornish Kitchens and headed up the Design Department, and for over 30 years we built up an enviable reputation at the top of the market, dealing with traditional properties; mansions, big-city townhouses and even the odd palace!

Now as an independent I am able to offer my services with a much wider range of design projects within the home with modern design styles playing a big part.

Having collaborated with designers such as Nina Campbell, Joanna Wood and Henrietta Spencer Churchill, you are assured of interior design excellence for all your requirements. Offering interior designs and a range of furniture with a unique and timeless quality.
