REEVE & CO SPECIALISE IN THE MANUFACTURE OF LUXURY BESPOKE JOINERY AND FURNITURE.
Following on from his father’s knowledge of antique furniture and reproduction furniture manufacturing, Torben Reeve established Reeve & Co in 2010. Torben’s passion for the highest level of craftsmanship and attention to detail has driven him to create the most luxury of pieces for both private and commercial clients. At Reeve & Co, we work closely with our clients alongside architects and interior designers to ensure every item, whether big or small: from a vanity unit in a bathroom to the grandest of dressing rooms, is perfect in every way.
Deals with the day-to-day operations of the business and is the direct point of contact for our clients. Torben Reeve studied business management to degree level. After leaving University, he started working for his father within the furniture and reproduction manufacturing business. This background has enabled Torben to create a team capable of working within the finest houses in the world delivering the finest items of joinery.
Works on the cutting lists and deals with technical issues with the fitted & freestanding furniture. Paul Sims has worked within the furniture industry for over 30 years. Paul started in the veneer shop, moved onto machining and then cabinet-making, so Paul understands all elements of the manufacturing process.
Works primarily on the bathroom and sales side of the business but also assists with the 3D drawings. Paul Edwards joined Reeve & Co after Old Fashioned Bathrooms was purchased in 2011 by the Reeve & Co group. Paul has excellent technical knowledge of bathrooms and design so therefore is extremely useful within the joinery business, especially when it comes to vanity units & plumbing solutions.
