About the Company
Experts attract experts. Architects and interior designers come to Reeve because they’re confident we know as much about wood as they know about designing. We’re used to dealing with people who are sticklers for detail, whose demands are precise and particular, who expect nothing but the highest standard of workmanship and service. We work as partners, helping our clients fully realise the potential of wood as a functional, yet beautiful, material.
Reeve was established in 1993, and in almost two decades of trading, we’ve experienced all kinds of woods in all kinds of scenarios, commercial and residential. We’re used to wood’s quirks and nuances, know when something’s right and when it’s not quite right. Because we work closely and regularly with cutting-edge designers, we’re fully aware of the latest looks and finishes and how to achieve them.
For us, clients always come first. We listen to what they want, and find a way to make it happen. Our service is bespoke and personal — we’ll work to your exact specifications, meeting your budgets but exceeding your expectations. We have plenty of our own ideas and opinions too, and are fully up to speed with the latest trends and developments in our industry.
Who we work with
Our lumber is imported from sustainable sources in Europe, North America and the Far East, and finished by hand at our workshop in Kings Lynn, Norfolk. We're confident that we can help you to see wood in a new light, to harness its natural beauty and bring another dimension to your projects.
We ask for accreditation from our suppliers wherever possible. Unfortunately, not all suppliers can provide certificates of provenance. In these cases, we tend to do our own research, finding out about the country of origin and its particular system of Silviculture, before making a judgment call.
We make wide floor boards from American White Oak, and buy lumber supplied by the Baillie Lumber Company from sustainable hardwood forests. Our ply bases come from Malaysian Timber Council-certificated sources or from Finnish FSC sources. Our 14mm flooring and some of our 20mm flooring, is also FSC certified.
