First met Ian when we needed a repair to an old piece of furniture. Quality of workmanship was fantastic and speed of response excellent so we went on to ask him to build us a set of fully fitted wardrobes for our bedroom. Delighted with the work Ian's done and have no hesitation in recommending him to others.Great value for money and the quality is so much better than you'd get from a mass-market chain of stores. You really feel like you have an individually designed and built piece of furniture. Thanks Ian, great work

An antique table and chairs given to us by my late mother was badly damaged when a water pipe burst. The team from Northmark restored the furniture to a superb standard, gave us excellent service at a competitive price. A great job!

We are Elijah Slocum a handmade traditional furniture company based in Los Angeles, California specialising in sevicing the most particular clients in the USA. We recently had a really complex job at the Sohnen residence on the Cecil B. DeMille estate where only the very best would be deemed good enough. We searched for the finest craftsman in the world and truly believe we found him. Each person at Elijah Slocum, Inc. stands in awe at Ian's accomplishment at the Sohen residence. From a concept and a few measurements, we watched the fruition of Ian's work over a 2 week period. We are very impressed indeed! Far more importantly, the clients, Mr and Mrs Sohnen could not be more pleased with Ian's work. His excellence makes all of us at Elijah Slocum, Inc. look very good and for that we are in his debt.

We recently had some shelving designed and fitted by Northmark and I would not hesitate to use them in future or to recommend them. Service was professional and friendly at all times and we really appreciated the flexibility they showed in being able to accomodate evening appointments to discuss our requirements and measure up. Afterthe initial measurements were taken, designs were drawn up. Our wall was long but also had a joist and coving to work round as well as coving and we also wanted the shelves to be built around the door into the room so the job was not just a straightforward shelving unit to be built. The shelves were built and stained in his workshop so that when the fitting date arrived the amount of time required at our property was reduced to a minimum. The completed job was fantastic! Ian not only fitted the shelves really well but cleaned upafter himself so you would not have known he had been there. Since they have been fitted a number of friends have commented on the quality of the work and are amazed at how well they fit to the ceiling, coving and around the door. For a job completed as well as this you would expect me to be telling you that the price was the most expensive we received. In fact that was not the case. I do believe you get what you pay for and will rarely go with the cheapest quote particularly if it comes in well below the other prices. However, Northmark were comptitive across a range of quotes so in addition to a job well done we also feel we got terrific value for our money. I am now looking at having a coffee table made to match the shelves so as a repeat customer I feel justified in recommending Ian and Northmark to others.

Ian laid a wooden oak floor for us in our home in Ruskington and we are delighted in the outcome. He was very honest with us in his discussionsprior to providing his quote and allowed us plenty of time to make up our minds. He also showed enormous patience in helping us to ido engage him to build some wardrobes for us nextentify exactly what we wanted. We particularly liked ian's punctuality,attention to detail and the careful manner in which he went about his work.He was a thorough professional and provided us with outstanding service and a wonderful floor and matching skirting. The room is transformed! He is now working on a fireplace for us and we have already decided to engage him to build some wardrobes for us next. All in all we can highly recomment Ian and we are delighted to have found him, he is a craftsman through and through.

Northmark have done 4 jobs for me now and we have been really pleased with each one. High quality workmanship, personal service and good value. Ian has made us a pine fitted bookshelf, a vanity unit, a desk and a freestanding unit. He painted 3 of them to exactly match existing furniture and we couldn't be more happy with the result. We would highly recommend his work.
