Emerson Living specialise in handmade kitchens and other furniture that’s built bespoke to suit you. Modern living doesn’t confine itself to single function rooms – instead, the kitchen has become the heart of the home for everyone to gather, chat, cook, work and play, and has expanded accordingly. So you might need your kitchen to also work for kids’ homework, your laptop or craft, a toy zone or home storage area. We can make what you need, all harmonised into a coherent, functional yet beautiful space.
