Explore Independent Cambridge: Linford Joinery


With the help of Independent Cambridge - the community of ‘real’ Cambridge - Cambridge Network continues its weekly exploration of the best independent shops, cafés, restaurants, people, businesses, venues and events in Cambridge and the surrounding area. This week: Linford Joinery.

‘Beautiful works in wood’ sums up Linford Joinery perfectly. James Linford is a time-served bench joiner, specialising in bespoke fitted and free-standing furniture, doors and windows. Every piece is meticulously handmade at the Cherry Hinton Road workshop and finished in natural oils or high-quality paint to match your decoration scheme.

If you’re thinking it’s time to upgrade a flimsy flatpack solution or make better use of space, James can build you a great looking storage solution which will really fit the bill. He’s produced solid beech bookshelves with adjustable shelves to house important academic books, designed wardrobes with sliding doors for compact living spaces and fitted window seats in bay windows with toy cupboards underneath for busy families.

And then there is the ‘Cubed’ range of free-standing furniture. Available as open cabinets or fitted with doors and drawers, they are perfect for storage and display, ideal for vinyl records, art or oversized books. Based on the good old cube, it’s easy to combine these in lots of different ways to create your own unique solution.

Joinery solutions are one of the most attractive ways to enhance any property and, with a bit of help from James, you can create a truly individual home.
