Kitchen designers Rhoda Mehigan and John Angus of Joseph French. Bespoke kitchen manufacturers in Edinburgh, Scotland


1. Brief | Initial Consultation

The first steps are to develop a clear brief and to gain an understanding of what the practical requirements and inspirations are for your new kitchen or furniture. We will also visit your home to take a survey or we will review architectural plans so that we can begin working on our initial scheme.


2. Design Presentation | Development

Once we have had the initial design consultation, we will pull the ideas together and create a design. This proposed scheme is presented in our studio with an indication of cost and a sample material/finishes board. 


Working together we will continue to hone the design while maintaining design expectations with functional requirements. Detailed floor plans and elevations will be developed as well as any technical drawings that your team on site might require.

3. Manufacture

Once finalised, a design pack is put together with all the relevant drawings for client or contractor handover. A final site survey will be completed and the agreed designs are passed onto the cabinet makers who will begin producing your furniture.

All of our joinery is made by our manufacturing partners in Scotland where a team take pride in building our cabinetry from start to finish. A visit to the workshop is always welcome and recommended.

4. Installation

Your cabinets are delivered and installed by our team.

Form, function, and craftsmanship are the guiding principles of our Edinburgh studio and we are incredibly proud of the fact that all furniture is both designed and manufactured in Scotland.

Kitchen designers studio in Edinburgh, Scotland. Joseph / French.

"John and Rhoda were fantastic to work with from start to finish. From the outset, they developed a concept which both perfectly captured our brief and anticipated elements which we had not considered. This set the tone for all further interactions with Joseph French from design to installation: a keen eye for detail, a hyper responsiveness to queries and a friendly and flexible approach (even in the face of practical challenges, none of which were of their making). The installation made use of local craftsmen, which was very important to us, and proceeded on schedule and budget. We are delighted with the results: a stylish, practical space which is proving hard-wearing and flexible. Thanks to John and Rhoda for all their hard work – we could not recommend them more highly."
