Bespoke furniture makers in the heart of the Cotswolds


welcome to aperture

We exist to create bespoke furniture for homes and offices in and around the Cotswolds. Working with our clients we transform spaces with unique handmade furniture and tailored interior design. We can work with you to create one piece of handmade furniture, or we can redesign and fill each room in your house with unique, custom pieces. Whatever your dream, we make it a reality.

why aperture?

In photography, an ‘aperture’ is the opening of the camera lens which allows light to pass through. It’s the moment that the camera becomes ready and poised to capture a look, a feeling, or a moment in time. And that’s what we do here at Aperture. We believe every room is like an opening, ready to convey a look, feel or atmosphere matched to its owner.

open up spaces

So, we open up spaces and rooms with our keen eye for design, transforming them into something truly special. Through our end-to-end custom furniture design, build and installation service, we’ll help you to perfectly capture the look and feel you want to achieve in your home.

Let us ask you some questions…


Are you struggling to find exactly what you want?

Do you have a specific idea of the furniture or room you need designed and don’t want to compromise?

Or, perhaps you need some more direction to create your perfect space?

Do you want a more personal service than some of the bigger furniture retailers can offer you?

Ultimate customisation with bespoke furniture design


When it comes to our bespoke furniture we offer endless possibilities for customisation.

We’re bespoke furniture makers. And that means that there are truly no limitations when it comes to your home. At Aperture, we don’t believe in ‘one size fits all!’

creating spaces

We believe in going the extra mile for your home. And this means that we don’t just fill spaces, we create them. We use the exact specifications of every room as well as the personality and needs of each client to create each piece of made to measure furniture. Then we tie everything together with our interior design expertise.

always unique, never generic

Every Aperture piece or room is specific to the unique needs and wants of each client, nothing is generic or off the shelf.
