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

        Very good service, great communication and arrived very promptly

        Thank you

        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.

        Beautiful and high quality furniture!

        Excellent delivery and customer services, even during difficult times like Covid 19.

        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.

        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.

        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.
