Gordon Fry's career as a designer-maker spans more than 25 years. Having obtained a foundation diploma in Art & Design he then went on to train as a furniture restorer/cabinet-maker with Bruce Luckhurst in 1994/1995.
After more than a decade based in Normandy, Gordon is now based in Sussex. Clients include designers, architects and private individuals both in Europe and the UK.
"We wanted to replace our old and draughty living room windows; they were unusual, panoramic semi-circular affairs, and an off-the-shelf solution was not going to be possible. Gordon helped us think through the options, suggested a number of alternatives, including changing the design of the panes, and managed the project from start to completion. The results exceeded our high expectations. The work was of the highest quality, the windows look great and it's changed both the look and feel of the house, from inside and out. Just as pleasing was the care taken when executing the work and the house was left pristine. We recommend Gordon and his work without any hesitation at all."

"We purchased an 18th century house in France and wanted to add bookcases to three walls in keeping with the history of the house. Gordon is a master designer and craftsman. His work is so well-crafted that the cases will no doubt last longer than the house. His sense of design, combined with his knowledge of period styles, is impeccable. Moreover, he is a really nice man who keeps his word and is a pleasure to work with."
Mr & Mrs L, Argentan France
"We live in a converted “longère” probably dating back to before 1750, in the very pretty region called the Perche in Lower Normandy. We called in Gordon to design and build an outside door going into our woodstore, which required a window above it to let in additional light. Gordon’s job was very well done, within both the quote and the timeframe (not always the case with artisans, I have to say). It has been in for a year and continues to function extremely well, keeping out the draughts."
