Here at The Old Forge we love working with our customers to help them get the most unique furniture pieces for their home. We know that each of our customers are unique and that’s why we work with each person individually. We discuss and consider everything you may require, advising where we think improvements could be made or suggesting additional design solutions for you.
We are an independent furniture retailer that has been owned by the same family and trading from the same location since 1991. Our experience and knowledge about furniture is all we need to understand what you are looking for. We love country styles that help make your house become a home.
Our Homemade Bookcases
The bookshelf is one of the most simplistic yet important pieces of furniture and it can really add character and charm to any space. Our homemade bookcases can be used to enhance the aesthetics of your interior design by showcasing items or storing your favourite books for easy-to-access inspiration.
Whether you want your bookcase to be a space for showcasing your sentimental belongings or you would like to show your stunning collection of literature off to the world; our homemade book cases can support even your most treasured possessions with elegance and style.

We know that purchasing furniture for your home can be quite an investment and that’s why we choose the most durable materials possible. Our bookcases are made from oak, pine, solid pine and antique pine to ensure they last and look good!
We Source Wood from FSC Forests
To help care for our environment, we source our wood from local Sussex-based companies who are passionate about sourcing their wood responsibly. Every forest we collect wood from is an FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) managed forest that promotes the establishment of the world’s forests – helping us all breathe a little easier. By sourcing our timber from FSC forests, we are doing our bit to ensure we forest responsibly with environmentally friendly companies.
We Handmake Our Bookcases
At The Old Forge, we are passionate about quality service, which is why we have some of the best carpenters in the industry working for us. Our custom made, solid wood book cases are individually hand crafted and finished in our Sussex workshops by the best in the business. By using traditional carpentry techniques, we hand make every piece that is ordered.
Quality Control Services
Here at The Old Forge, our team takes your furniture investment seriously and every piece we complete undergoes quality control twice. This ensures each homemade book case we build undergoes quality control first when it leaves the workshop and then again right before we deliver it to you. This helps us make sure you get the top-quality furniture you asked for.
Getting everything right the first time is our aim. However, if your homemade book case goes through quality control and we find it lacking, we will act quickly to resolve the problem. Excellent customer service and quality products are our top priorities and we will work tirelessly until you are happy with the completed product.
The Perfect Paint Finish
Once your homemade bookcase is completed, our professional painters will either spray paint or hand-paint to complete the look. Our professional spray painters can achieve an extremely high-quality spray that provides a seamless finish. However, our hand-painted finish allows for effects such as whitewashing, shabby chic, layered or distressing which can give that country charm to your unique bookcase.
