When I started out, over 30 years ago, it was just me, a couple of old machines and a few hand tools in a pig shed in Hadlow Down. We've come a long way since then, moving to our current premises in Plumpton in 2000 which we converted from an old cow byre to a fully equipped furniture making workshop and opening our Lewes Showroom at the bottom of Cliffe High Street. At Alistair Fleming, every kitchen is individually designed to suit each space and is genuinely bespoke, with all cupboards hand made and finished in-house. We start from raw FSC certified timber and here is where the alchemy begins. Each individual kitchen will be handed over to one of our cabinet makers who will have the responsibility and task from start to finish of that unique design. There are many processes to making a bespoke kitchen and each and every one needs to be carried out properly so as not to undermine the finish. Due to the bespoke nature of what we do most of our clients will be local. This ensures that we can provide on going support and care to our customers and over the years this has meant we’ve built a strong local reputation. Our relationship to the Lewes economy is important to us, as is our sustainability and environmental impact. All of our off cuts help to keep us warm in the winter! Alistair Fleming Fine English Cabinetry 1 Malling Street Lewes East Sussex BN7 2RA 01273 471269 Every space is different but, for me, it’s of primary importance that a kitchen is effortlessly beautiful, at the same time functioning practically and ergonomically. Having designed and built many hundreds of kitchens over the last 30 years, we have a wealth of experience to call on. “ Great quality, beautiful bespoke workmanship - we have a kitchen that is a pleasure to work in. And handmade in Sussex!” BEVERLY AND PAUL SAWYERS, BRIGHTON Book a FREE survey and design throughout October when you mention Inside Sussex.
