This is what folks are saying about us.

 
 

“I commissioned Nafisi to design and build a coffee table for my small flat in London. I wanted a unique piece, but practically it needed to be compact and have some storage space. The final table was stunning and just right for my living area. Nafisi had listened to my needs and interpreted the design perfectly - I would not hesitate to recommend.”

“An amazing all-round experience with Nafisi Studio. Both Abi and Kate were extremely helpful, informative and very professional. I have a bespoke office that meets all my needs. Abi listened and spent time creating a space that worked for me and that I can now enjoy. The quality of his work is of the highest level. My desk even appeared in the March 2019 edition of Country Homes. Highly recommend.”

“Where do I start....On arrival, Me and my Friend David were met by a very friendly Abi and shortly after his wife Kate. They both made us feel very comfortable. shortly after, the rest of the group arrived. In total there were 6.
We all briefly discussed our reasons for being there. My personal reason was from a furniture development project I have been working on. My aim was to get a feel for what was involved in reanimating wood into various different forms.

Abi and Kate were incredibly enthusiastic about their craft and it showed. Initially I was a bit overwhelmed at what was required.

All the magic happens in a very short time frame of two minutes.
However with some very careful planning incredible results can be achieved.

Wood bending is very much an organic craft. It does not conform to a precise plan. So be prepared to get creative when you try taming the pieces of carefully selected wood.

All in all, I think the day was a huge success. There were highs...Finally getting my desired steamed shape to pop from the wood former and into my carefully created machined slots (amazing food too) and lows... My realisation you can not run before you can walk haha.

I have left with the determination to create the very best forming jigs for Unidexters (I am a lower arm amputee) as it is not easy taming wood so 5 pairs of hands is a must. Alternatively work as a team and achieve great results together.

Thank you Abi and Kate once again for an incredible day.”

“Attention to detail and quality of workmanship is amazing.

Abi is also one of the nicest people you could meet so it's a real pleasure to watch him bring your ideas to life with such passion for his craft.”

“ The bed is us. It's a great feeling to look at it and feel an extension of ourselves. It is everything we feel, appreciate, and look for. And we thank you for taking such efforts in learning us and realising it. The design is beyond anything we could articulate and yet feels like home. And it has anchored our home in warmth.

It's been an immense pleasure to work with you both, much less a business transaction than a meeting of minds, appreciation, curiosity, each of you a powerhouse and a story teller, we'll be watching for all the amazing things lined up for you. A huge thank you, and much love.”
