“Many thanks for this. Actually, I don’t think we could be happier with the study design fit-out. I keep walking into the room just to admire it! Mark and his team did a tremendous job.



“My wife Alison and I engage Mark and his team to design and build us a complete study fit-out (bookshelves, computer space, display shelves) for our new house. It was a pleasure to discuss our requirements with someone as knowledgeable and experienced as Mark. As for the finished product, well we couldn’t be happier. The craftsmanship, the look and the finish are all of the highest order. We couldn’t speak more highly of the skillful courteous and attentive team at Smith and Gray.”

“We were looking for a bespoke cabinet with a modern feel for our lounge and fireplace. This was the first time we had ordered bespoke cabinetry so Mark came onsite and helped us develop the design and feel, keeping our budget in mind. We were absolutely delighted with the outcome, which far exceeded our expectations.

We have open plan living area and were looking for ways to define the dining and lounge areas. We engaged Smith and Gray to create a solid family dining table with a contemporary feel that would fit into the space. They created a beautiful table that our family can enjoy for many years to come.”

“Just wanted to say thanks again for making our tables. We’re extremely happy with them and everyone that’s seen them absolutely loves them! You guys are fantastic!”



“Mark and Dave have helped us with two projects this year one a solid victorian ash timber kitchen for an art deco apartment and the other a black bean sideboard for our house. Both projects went very smoothly and the results were spectacular. I can highly recommend these guys, they do fantastic work and use only the best materials. Every time I have visited their workshop they are building the most amazing things from solid timber spiral stair cases to enormous gilt framed mirrors. If you are looking for properly built custom furniture of any description Mark and Dave are the right people for the job.”



“To Mark and the team at Smith & Gray, I just wanted to thank you and tell you how delighted we are with our chairs!

We searched countless furniture stores looking for some occasional chairs to match our décor so when we found your business and you offered to make our chairs to our design and specifications you were a breath of fresh air.

Your communication from our initial concept, the design stage, showing us the prototype and then delivery of the finished product was fantastic.

Looking forward to working with you again, on our next piece of furniture!”

“Hi Mark and David. Brilliant job! All 3 tables are stunning, beautifully made and beautifully finished.

I’ve been smiling all afternoon since seeing them. Thank you for being so committed to producing beautiful work, it really shows.”



“I cannot recommend too highly the craftsmanship, efficiency, and friendly service that I experienced when I engaged Smith and Gray to create some custom made pieces for my home. As my daughter and I were also involved in the design process, the co-operation and friendly collaboration, and the sensible advice Mark and Dave offered, borne out of the years of experience that they have had in the industry, resulted in a totally successful experience. The furniture pieces are stamped with quality and careful craftsmanship, and are exactly what we had in mind. They are a source of great pleasure to me every time I look at them. I would certainly recommend Mark and Dave to anyone looking for quality custom built furniture delivered with care and a smile.”
