Measure twice, cut once.
Very Good & Proper design and manufacture carefully considered, practical and beautiful products – products built to last using quality materials and craftsmanship.
At VG&P we collaborate with leading architects, interior designers and furniture dealers around the world and also sell to individuals for their homes and businesses. Our products can be purchased directly by individuals through our Shop and for design professionals by enquiry through VG&P Professional.
VG&P launched in 2009 with signature pieces - the Canteen Table, the Hook & Knob and the Utility Chair which are still best sellers today. Our team is led by company director Ed Carpenter and design director André Klauser who have been working together since 2005. Alongside our London based design team, we collaborate and commission designers for various product ranges including furniture designer Michael Marriott, ceramicist Ian McIntyre, product designer John Tree and design duo Amandine Chhor and Aïssa Logerot of AC/AL.
We take a hands-on approach, working closely with our suppliers to inform our design and achieve the best results. The quality of our products comes first, we never compromise on materials or manufacturing. Our products are built to last and are manufactured responsibly in the UK and Europe by a carefully selected network of material suppliers and fabricators.
The Very Good & Proper by-line is ‘Measure twice, cut once’ – sage advice that captures the commitment to quality, sense of playfulness and attention to detail expressed in our products.
