My name is Giles Slater. I am the founder and creative director of Figura. We specialise in designing and installing kitchens and interiors of rare quality. Each piece of furniture is beautifully detailed, individually crafted. We work for clients who want something very special and uniquely designed for their home.
Now celebrating our 25th year in business, our passion is for crafting extraordinary yet practical living spaces. It is this, as well as helping clients invest in their homes for the long term, that remains at the core of everything we do. Figura is founded on design, creativity and inspiration alongside the best in master craftsmanship.
Our design process is the antithesis of the pre-designed ranges found in kitchen showrooms. Using the traditional method of designing by hand we engage in a more thoughtful, more organic, more dynamic process. This enables us to create visually uplifting and truly functional spaces.
If you are considering a project I warmly encourage you to call us to discuss your ideas. Alternatively, come and visit us at our design studio at The Old Bakery, Chiddingfold in Surrey, so that we can learn more about what we can do for you. You will be very welcome.
The greatest care is taken over the design and detail of our work so that it fits in with the overall aesthetic of each individual home.
Having accumulated years of experience and a deep knowledge of working with different materials, we take the utmost care in ensuring the durability and functionality of our furniture. This is as important to us as its elegance and timelessness. We pay as much attention to detailing and styling as to the selection of the most skilled craftsmen for each project.
Quality of design, technical expertise and excellence in craftsmanship are our cornerstones. As a small close-knit team we provide continuity to projects both large and small. From a bespoke kitchen, bedroom, bathroom, library, study, gun room, media room, dressing room to whole houses, we deliver a uniquely personal service with an unfailing sense of responsibility to every aspect of every assignment.
At the centre of all good interior design is the notion that it can stand the test of time. We ensure our clients love the rooms we create in their homes as much in twenty years’ time as they do today.
We value the close relationship we build with our clients. This appreciation is reflected in our extraordinarily high recommendation rate and the number of further projects we are commissioned to undertake.
“Figura were the only ones who came up with something exciting. From the start they were on fire with ideas and it was really clear that the difference between Figura and everyone else was that they had great vision and could see potential where others clearly could not.”
