Lyden Architectural Joinery


With over 25 years of trading, Lyden Architectural joinery is an established

family business boasting a wealth of experience in period design and bespoke joinery.

Our dedicated team of craftsmen have an extensive knowledge of traditional

wood-work in a wide range of styles and all of our work is produced to the highest

aesthetic standard and made with lasting quality. Our small team of cabinet makers,

French polishers, wood carvers and design experts combine their exceptional skills

to painstakingly re-create original detail to a point that is near impossible to distinguish
between the new wood and the old. Such attention to detail is the philosophy
which has made the business widely respected and nothing is overlooked in
creating an authentic, traditional look.

Design – ‘Bringing your ideas to life’


At L.A.J. we pride ourselves on producing work that fits your home perfectly. Every project we undertake is bespoke and commissioned directly by the customer to give you something truly unique. To get to this special, ‘one-off’ service we always meet with our customers for a free consultation to discuss styles, detailing, use of space and finishing options. You outline brief would then be converted into a traditional working drawing for your approval.

Whilst many of our clients use our in-house design service we are equally happy to work with architects and interior designers and can boast the successful completion of many significant  projects under the guidance of several of the country’s top professionals in these fields.

L.A.J. Workshops


The L.A.J. ‘signature’ Oak finish

 At L.A.J. we can accommodate a huge range of styles and finishes, but one which never fails to achieve the ‘Wow factor’ is our antiqued polished Oak. Our work is always manufactured from new Oak from sustainable sources and using traditional joinery skills and French polishing techniques, we create a depth of colours and unique patination which compliments the inherent natural character of the Oak. This results in beautifully warm finish which looks fantastic in kitchens and on doors, staircases, floorboards and much more. This style is so authentic in it's appearance we have even managed to fool a Conservation officer in one of our period projects!


Specialist paint finishes

 We also have extensive expertise in creating exceptional painted finishes. Using traditional techniques and our own spray-shop facilities we can add a splash of colour to suit any interior design scheme. Our painted finishes can also be sympathetically ‘antiqued’ to match any given period or style. We have developed several techniques to create aged paint effects such as ‘rubbed-through’, faded and crackckled, to really bring authenticity to a new design in a period home.

Period design

With a background in antique restoration, we at L.A.J. pride ourselves in our ability to create
room sets, suites and individual pieces of furniture to match the period style of your home. We have a wealth of experience of every given period and architectural style including: Jacobean, Georgian, Victorian, Biedermiere, Arts and Craft, Art Deco and even Contemporary and Modernist designs.
