“It felt a risk to buy furniture online without having seen it, but an interior designer friend told me that the quality at Scumble Goosie was excellent and the prices reasonable for the quality. And, just as she promised, I am delighted with the two small Empire bedside tables that have just been delivered. The standard dimensions seemed slightly too tall for a small guest room so it was great to be able to customise the height, plus choose the colour using the paint swatches sent to us. The standard of workmanship is very high – my father, who is a skilled carpenter, was impressed. The tables are elegant in design but substantial and with pretty handles. Scumble Goosie was a pleasure to deal with both via email and telephone with various queries – the plus of buying from a small company. The delivery was also efficient and accommodating, with a useful call on the day to confirm the delivery time more precisely. Highly recommended – worth the few weeks’ wait for them to be custom-made.”
“I can wholeheartedly recommend both Scumble Goosie’s bespoke and standard service. Jon’s advice, flexibility and good humour have been invaluable in creating exciting designs to meet our project’s needs.
In addition Scumble Goosie’s production, painting and delivery to time and budget have exceeded our expectations. Jon’s Team do exactly what they say they do in their marketing literature”
Simon Prior, Holland Park Property Management
“Just to say a huge thank you for the fabulous Swedish dining table and chairs received safely. We are absolutely delighted with them and the colour of the paintwork and finish is spot on.
Your customer care and attention to detail is really appreciated and it has been a truly pleasurable experience dealing with your company, not least because of your very friendly, helpful and jolly staff! We will definitely be recommending you to others and we will be back.”
Alona van den Broek
“Thanks very much for the tables. I’m really pleased with them – they’re exactly the look I wanted.”
“I’m so pleased the table and chair are almost ready – I had thought they wouldn’t be ready until late August/September.”
“Thank you so much for coming over on Tuesday. I really appreciate you taking the time out to have a look at our work in progress.”
“I just wanted to drop you a line to say how thrilled I am with the chest of drawers and bedside tables. Thank you to you and your colleagues – they are exactly what I wanted and considering it was all done by ‘phone and email that’s even more impressive.”
“The tables have arrived today, as promised, and I am delighted with them. I will use you again. Thanks a lot.”
“Thanks – we’ll certainly be repeat customers.”
“Thank you Jon. I am so excited – it is coming Monday!!”
“The chairs arrived very promptly on Wednesday and we are delighted with them… Thank you for ensuring they reached us on time. We will certainly remember you are there.”
“Dear Scumble Goosie, I think that your product range is wonderful.”
Dr Kate Blackmon
“I’d love the delivery tomorrow if that’s possible..what service!”
“Just to say many thanks for the Chest of Drawers, we are very pleased with it.”
“I just wanted to put into writing how thrilled I am with my Gustavian bench. It is such a lovely piece of furniture and so beautifully made. I also wanted to thank you for your wonderful customer service – you must have many customers but you always knew me by name and the progress of my order – it made me feel as special to you and your beautiful bench will be to me”
“Where does a customer start to recount all that is extraordinary about Scumble Goosie? It could be the faithfulness and integrity of your designs, or the ingeniousness and robust nature of their construction. One could add that it might be the flexibility of the sizing. To paint – or not to paint – the choice is ours to make.
It is all of these features, coupled with the unswervingly excellent customer service, that makes Scumble Goosie a unique and very welcome alternative to High Street stores. It is wonderful to own pieces that do not have a mass-produced look and feel. I look forward to adding to my collection in years to come.
Many thanks, Jon. I wish you and your team continued success and growth. It is richly deserved”.
“The website is easy to use, the furniture is lovely, and the service has been excellent”.
“We had two very large bookcases made specifically to fit awkward alcoves. Jon, you helped us enormously in designing them, and you were very patient with me changing my mind! When they arrived, the mango wood was far too beautiful to paint, so I waxed them and they are now the talking point of the room. They have quite transformed it”.
“Just to let you know that the console table arrived and looks lovely. I was also very impressed with the carrier service which arrived early and so freed up my whole day!”
“Scumble Goosie’s craftsmanship, service and delivery is terrific!”
“Hi Jon. It is stunning, thank you. I really love it.”
“We were very pleased with the two demi lune tables. It is always a pleasure to do business with you. Everyone we speak to is totally helpful and obliging, and the quality of material and workmanship is evident throughout. We cannot speak too highly of the company and its products.”
“The tables arrived on Thursday and we are very pleased with them. The painting tips are useful. We shall be painting them with a Farrow and Ball ‘Dead Flat’ paint which gives a chalky finish that we like.”
“Table received and standing proudly in position. Thanks again for the service, we will use your business for our furniture needs in the future.”
“After years of dreaming of the perfect desk, I found it here! Scumble Goosie have been fantastic, with great customer service. I’d definitely recommend them, their furniture is beautiful.”
“I want to let you all know that we are absolutely delighted with the Gustavian headboard you have recently painted for us. It looks lovely. We shall be back!”
Mrs S Stevens
“Thank you for the warm welcome and attentive service. I absolutely love your furniture.”
“When my husband managed to stain the top of my Empire chest of drawers, I asked if you would advise me so I could attempt to repair the damage. You sent me a repair kit, and I thought ‘ Wow, that’s impressive’. Thank you so much.”
“I haven’t stopped recommending your excellent service to all I know. It is businesses like yours which will help us to emerge from this dreadful recession. I look forward to making further purchases from your company in the near future.”
“Thank you for the safe delivery of the writing desk. It’s just as I imagined and I’m extremely happy with it. It isn’t easy communicating bespoke ideas from abroad but whichever member of your team I spoke to was always kind and very helpful.”
“It is brilliant news that you are so busy! I get so tired of all the doom and gloom stories of small companies going under. It goes to prove that if you have a good business – selling the right products at the right price – you can succeed – so big congratulations to you all.”
“I have found a fabulous house in Northleach. I can’t wait to be a resident of the Cotswolds – and live the country life and, of course, enjoy your beautiful furniture…Bliss!”
“I received delivery today of the dressing table. I am very impressed with the quality. We are snowed in, but the driver still came, making his third attempt to get here. So thank you once again for all your trouble.”
“Just wanted to thank you for delivering such a beautiful piece to us – it’s stunning. We were going to paint and distress it but that’s no longer an option – we’d ruin it if we did.”
“I am delighted with my bookcase. It is not only beautiful in itself – it actually improves the look of the whole room.”
“The Bookcase is installed – we really love it! It’s perfect.”
