Robinson-Gay is a family business with craftsmanship, design and quality at its heart. Stephen established the cabinetmaking business over 30 years ago and the principles of craftsmanship he started out with remain unchanged today. Stephen and Jason design, make and oversee each project from start to finish.
All our craftsmen have served an apprenticeship within the company. Great emphasis is placed on employing traditional techniques for the furniture making. Mortise and tenon jointing, exposed dovetails, burr banding and using the natural grain of the wood are characteristic of our work. Robinson Gay furniture is individually designed so whether free standing or fitted; modern or reproduction it is made with the care and expertise that only many years of patience and skill can produce.
In the restoration workshop, Stephen undertakes all manner of work, copying and refitting Tudor carvings, Queen Anne marquetry, Georgian mouldings, Regency turned work and Victorian veneers. He has a wealth of experience in all aspects of restoration which is necessary for such exacting work. Victoria Walpole also creates her highly intricate marquetry in this workshop. Examples of her work can be found at our Gallery in Hexham.
