Carter Wells London



Artichoke are designers and cabinet makers of exceptional bespoke kitchens, fitted furniture and interior architectural joinery. Established for 25 years, the company is led by its founder and managing director Bruce Hodgson.

The team has a wealth of experience and knowledge of designing with a broad range of materials, techniques and finishes, together with a thorough understanding of the building process. They are renowned for their meticulous attention to the detail in creative and technical design, furniture making and project management, which has earned them the reputation as one of the UK’s leading bespoke fitted furniture designers.

Artichoke employs a team of 28 designers and craftspeople who are passionate about their work. They take great pride in creating original, elegant and striking interiors that resolve their clients wishes, that are comfortable and practical to live and work in, and are respectful of the fabric and architecture of the building.

"Artichoke’s integrity as an organisation and its commitment to quality has enabled them to grow entirely by referral. They have an enviable portfolio and have been entrusted to work in fine homes across the UK and internationally. This company is everything we were looking for when it comes to kitchens. So much so, that we are now thinking of involving them in the larder, boot room and library! Their attention to the design process - how we live, how we function in our space and how we would like all the constituent parts to look, is excellent, and the results are second to none. Highly recommended."
