ACORNS TO OAK TREES
We’d have to go back nearly 40 years to discover the acorn from which James Adcock Furniture & Kitchens has grown. When James and David set up in 1999 it was obvious to both of them the furniture should be made in Romania.
In the Carpathian Alps Romania they bought a dairy farm, converted it to a workshop with state of the art tools; bought their own kiln to dry the wood and employed Doina and Cristi Stania whom David met in his first forays into Romania. Doina and Cristi now have 40 skilled craftsmen & women working for us. James visits every month. Having our own workshop means we can control the quality and have the exibility to offer bespoke kitchens and furniture.
The trees we use have been individually chosen and there is a no clear felling policy. These logs are often pulled out by horse to minimise ecological damage. We want our kitchens and furniture to be as eco-friendly as it can be. In crafting the furniture we end up with lots of offcuts and sawdust. None of it is wasted.
The offcuts heat our workshop and are now available in our stores for your home too; the sawdust keeps the local tomato plants warm. Keeping it green we designed and built solar powered kilns to dry our wood. Once the kitchens and furniture have been crafted it is hand finished to our customer’s requirements or primed ready for hand painting and then carefully bubble wrapped awaiting shipment to us in the Cotswolds. We are proud of our British Heritage and our Romanian craft.
