Parlour Farm, a manufacturer of bespoke kitchens and cabinetry, has been awarded the prestigious Manufacturing Guild Mark from The Furniture Makers’ Company, the City of London livery company and charity for the furnishing industry.

The company is a family run business that’s been producing the highest in quality bespoke kitchen cabinetry for over 20 years. Parlour Farm prides itself on being able to tailor every element of the room to a precise specification, ensuring that every inch of available space is utilised to build the best performing kitchen possible. It operates from a workshop and showroom, with eight large kitchen sets, in Cirencester, Gloucestershire.

Sponsored by Biesse Group and Lectra, the Manufacturing Guild Mark has been the mark of excellence, distinguishing Britain’s top furnishing manufacturers, since 1993. The Mark is awarded to companies that demonstrate high standards across seven assessment criteria: design, product development and function, manufacture, human resources, financial stability, sustainability and sales and marketing.

Ben Burbidge, Manufacturing Guild Mark Chairman, presented Dino Mussell, managing director at Parlour Farm, with the certificate of authentication at a presentation ceremony held at the company’s premises. Holding the Mark entitles the manufacturer to publicise the designation of excellence within its own press activity and marketing.

Ben Burbidge, Manufacturing Guild Mark chairman, said: “Congratulations to Parlour Farm for achieving the absolute pinnacle of awards, the Manufacturing Guild Mark, which recognises excellent UK furnishing manufacturers. The award is a testament to the skill and commitment of all the team at the business, whose dedication ensures excellence is maintained consistently across all areas of the company. It was an absolute pleasure to meet Dino and be given a tour of the company’s excellent manufacturing facility in the Cotswolds.”

Dino Mussell, Managing Director at Parlour Farm, commented: “I am passionate about our bespoke kitchen company, we are a family run business with an aim to give the customer not only the best experience, but the best quality and service that only a dedicated team can do. I’m delighted that our passion, flair and design has been recognised with the awarding of the Manufacturing Guild Mark by a respected institution like The Furniture Makers’ Company.”
