Very Good & Proper design and manufacture carefully considered, practical and beautiful products – products built to last using quality materials and craftsmanship.

VG&P collaborates with leading architects, interior designers and furniture dealers around the world, and our products are also purchased directly by individuals and companies for their homes and businesses. Our signature pieces include the Canteen Table, Hook & Knob, and Utility Chair, all first launched at the London Design Festival in 2009.

Our design team is led by company director Ed Carpenter and André Klauser, who have been working together for over 12 years. We also commission designers for product ranges including Michael Marriott, Ian McIntyre and Felix de Pass.

We take a hands-on approach, working with our suppliers to inform our design and achieve the best results. The quality of our products comes first and we never compromise on materials or manufacturing. Our products are built to last and are manufactured responsibly in the UK and Europe, with a carefully selected network of material suppliers and fabricators. Every order is assembled and checked at our headquarters before dispatch.


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.
