Ben Whistler was formed in 1999 by brothers Ben and Sebastian de Groot. They came
from a family background of furniture restoration and antiques, so making
high quality custom furniture was a natural progression. After 10 years of
building up the tools, skills and craftsmen the company moved to its present
site in West London at Shepherds Bush where there is a 16,000 sq foot factory
as well as a dedicated showroom for the Ben Whistler products.
The company combines the traditional values of craftsmanship and detailed knowledge
of furniture with the benefits of advanced technology and streamlining. The
Design department has backgrounds in traditional upholstery and Furniture
Design and is able to produce concept sketches up to fully detailed ROD drawings
and 3D renderings.
This ability means that Ben Whistler are as comfortable making large volume
production runs as they are manufacturing one-off centrepiece furniture. The
ability to scale for manufacture also means that fully developed designs can be
made economic for large contract installations such as Resort Hotels,
Restaurants and Casinos.
The Sales team have many years of combined experience in the luxury Interiors
market and are able to offer guidance and advice on the construction and design
of projects, as well as manage the flow of the job using state of the art
custom software developed for Ben Whistler.
