We are specialists in the design and manufacture of fitted and free standing furniture, producing work to a very high standard, of our own design.
We help and advise with colours, paint finishes and materials to ensure that the complete project is a design that is truly bespoke for our clients.
Our workshops are on the outskirts of Newport, Gwent and we have a showroom in Usk, Monmouthshire. The shop is more than just a kitchen showroom.
We sell William Yeoward Crystal, Italian Pewter, Jersey Pottery and Fine Art. We are regular visitors to European Trade Shows, sourcing exclusive accessories to compliment our furniture.

Our Story

Alexander established his business in 1979, designing and making furniture initially with the help of his grandfather, a master craftsman. Following a long family tradition of furniture making and country skills, he inherited the old wooden planes used by his great grandfather to hand craft furniture. Making his first stools at a very young age, his early influence was his father, Peter , a well respected London architect. Alexander’s cabinet making skills combined with his intuitive ability to interpret clients’ wishes, provided the firm foundation for his growing design-led business. Working closely with his wife Sian, also from an art and design background, the Company developed an instinctive design style that makes a Quails project unique.

The Company
The Company is very much a small, family run business, comprising of the retail side Quails and the manufacture and design side, at Whitson. Quails have a showroom in Usk, Monmouthshire, which is an exclusive showroom for Cabinet Maker & Designer. We design and make our own furniture at our workshop in Newport, South Wales, with our own team of dedicated cabinet makers and skilled joiners. We provide training and apprenticeships for young people, keeping alive the traditional skills of the past whilst designing quality furniture of the future. The Company is only ever as good as the people who work in it and as the Company grows, we feel this is a measure of our success.
