Aims of the Association

To promote the pursuit of excellence in furniture making in Norfolk.

About the Association

The Norfolk Furniture Makers Association was founded in 1972 by a small group of craft-based furniture designers and makers, and is unique in being the only county-based furniture association in the country.

With a current membership of fifteen, the group's work ranges from 17th century style, through garden and country furniture, the classical and ultra modern, to complete interiors. The association can also offer carving, gilding and restoration skills to a very high standard. An annual three day show at which the public can meet the makers is held in Norwich over the weekend after Easter.

Many prestigious commissions have been undertaken by members of the association including work for the Royal Family, the University of East Anglia, Lord Bath, Norwich Cathedral, the Anglican shrine at Walsingham and the White House.

A total of ten Craft Guild Marks have been awarded to members by the Worshipful Company of Furniture Makers, which illustrates the excellence of the members' work.

Joining the Association

Applicants must be full-time professionals, and the selection process is in two stages:-

1 Submission of photographs of their work.
2 Inspection of their work by a panel of three existing members.
