Based in historic St Leonards-on-Sea, Cribb & Hammer is a bespoke furniture and furniture restoration business with more that 20 years experience. They specialise in handmade furniture and bring tired pieces back to life.

Julie and husband Con set up their handmade furniture and furniture restoration business in the historic town of St Leonards-on-Sea because they find daily inspiration from the town in which they live. They scour the wonderful local lanes, fairs and markets looking for beautiful pieces of furniture that just need a little care and attention to restore them to their former glory.

Whether it is an old pine piece that would benefit from some traditional painting techniques or beautiful natural wood that is lovingly transformed into an heirloom piece they get to know and enjoy every piece of furniture they work with.

Julie is passionate about St Leonards-on-Sea as a place full of interesting and original architecture and a great source of unusual interior pieces. “I get such a buzz from exploring the local markets and enjoy working with the inspiring network of creative businesses that are based here also.” She is always keen to welcome visitors from other parts of the country and even organises “Interior Mini-Trips!” combining staying in lovely-local B&B’s with a bit of interior site-seeing, shopping, lovely lunches and creative time painting or restoring in the Cribb & Hammer workshop.

“My husband has the furniture skills we need for the business creating beautiful handmade furniture and restoring old pieces” she says so I am free to get out and help our clients to make more of their homes “we are even restoring an old beach hut at the moment, right down on the beach. I can’t wait until it is finished and then I will definitely be adding it into our interiors site-seeing itinerary. It is a dream property.”

“Our main business is of course restoring and creating handmade furniture and that will never change because we absolutely love it. But we do enjoy bringing people to St Leonards-on-Sea to see the history and interior culture that exists in this part of the world.”

  1. Julie recently repainted a dressing table for me and I was delighted with the result. I would thoroughly recommend Cribb & Hammer, a very professional service and lovely to work with.
