Need a new desk, TV console or kitchen island? The Roger&Sons team can produce the perfect design for you – as well as refurbish, if you want to give your existing furniture a fresh new look.
Roger&Sons works with all types of wood – from solids like oak, walnut, teak and nyatoh, to plywood, oriented strand boards and pallet wood to reclaimed wood. Other materials include metal, LED and mirrors. It could be a teak wood dining table with metal legs, or a bookshelf-cum-feature wall.
