Jacob Alexander create bespoke handcrafted kitchens and furniture. Established in 2012 and operating from our studio and workshop in Sydenham, South-east London, we are dedicated to producing exceptional quality cabinetry, innovative finishes and lasting design.
Whether using raw natural materials or refined factory-applied finishes, employing quintessential styles or introducing new uncommon combinations – we encourage a dynamic interaction of materials, disciplines, technology and craft.
We are a family business run by Founder and Design Director Jacob Lomas and Operations Director Adelaide Glover. Jacob studied Fine Art Sculpture at the University of Brighton where he developed a keen eye for detail and a passion for materials, experimentation and manufacturing processes. Jacob re-trained as a cabinet maker and established Jacob Alexander in December 2012 when he was just 23 years old. Since then he has developed an impressive design-led portfolio of work, including his collection of innovative metalwork projects. Jacob is a perfectionist and his meticulous approach to projects, however large or small, means that we create bespoke cabinetry that stands the test of time in terms of both design and durability.
Adelaide studied Environmental Geography and International Development with a focus on forestry, at the University of East Anglia. Adelaide has over six years of research and project management experience in forest governance and the international timber trade and has worked for leading organisations in the field. Adelaide has a sound understanding of how and where our timber materials are sourced and the need to ensure they are certified sustainable, free from human rights abuses and other illegalities.
