Why Made in Ply?

Our design service sets us apart from your standard custom furniture supplier. 

Why? Because we have an in-house designer on-hand to support you with your plans. Simply arrange a video call with us and our CEO Dan Lobato will work with you to customise your creation.

We've worked with home and commercial spaces across the UK and our customers often comment on our attention to detail and great customer service.

How does it work?

Once you've 'met' the designer (via Google Meet) and chatted through your brief, we'll request your measurements and/or a drawing of the space. From this we can create a rough quote, then we ask for a 10% deposit to move to the design stage.

Your personal designer will then create a plan, configuring our products to fit the space and the brief. You'll get plenty of opportunity to talk through the design and tweak as necessary.

Can I check it?

Once you're happy with the design, we provide detailed drawings which show every mm, giving you the assurance that you’ll have the perfect fit for your space and style.

Sign off on the final drawings, pay the remaining balance, and we'll produce and deliver your products as quick as we can. Our products are all made for straight forward assembly and installation, but if it's a large job you might wish to book our assembly team or arrange your own builder to be on site.

Where do meetings take place?

Our meetings are online only, which allows us to optimise our designers' time. But this does not in any way reflect negatively on the quality of our work. Our accomplished in-house designer and founder Dan Lobato has vast experience and we have great feedback on his attention to detail and customer care.

Cutting with precision

Our CNC technology allows us to cut with precision, exactly from the design drawings. These are discussed and reflected upon at all stages of the design process and we work hard to create a bit of old school charm and personal experience, but using the tools of today.

Get the perfect fit

Many of our clients order our ply products and then will instruct a local fitter/builder to do the install. We do have an assembly service and have a team we use for this, but cutting on site would need to be done by a local professional. We are happy to work with them and instruct them as needed.
