Olson + Bakers service and products have been outstanding. I can't recommend Jonathan at Olson + Baker enough.

He is an absolute star and has gone out of his way to provide superb service.

Lovely website, great communication, fast delivery and they came in at a price other shops couldn't compete with on the chair I was after.

It has been an absolute pleasure buying a lovely piece of furniture from Olsen + Baker. Russell has been a delight to deal with, keeping me informed at every step of the delivery, even down to which colour would fit with my decor - nothing was too much.

I can’t recommend highly enough.

First class service.

The Olson Baker team continue to deliver outstanding advice and product knowledge.

Olson + Baker were wonderful to deal with.

We purchased our item (a beautiful coat hook) but had to delay delivery due to a trip overseas.

We weren't dealing with an automated system, just real people who cared enough to help.

The service is superb and the website is so intuitive! 10 out of 10! :D Lee

Excellent product but more importantly during these difficult times was the customer service level and great delivery team ....

take note Heal’s as you’ve not got a clue how to service customers

Excellent communication and speedy delivery...

Couldn't have been better and will certainly buy from the company again.

Fantastic customer service throughout the ordering process.

Great products - really pleased with my order.

So glad I came across Olson & Baker for my home accessories that I would not find elsewhere on the High Street.

Recently purchased a Nordic Style candle holder, which I had admired at a recent stay at a holiday home in Norfolk.  Product arrived very quickly. Contact via email from Jonathan. Excellent customer service and a gorgeous product too.

Thank you Jonathan and all at Olson and Baker.
