Meet John

johnbigger1Hi there… well in 1986 I established English Country Design in LA. From the moment I set up the store I was able to use my patience, eye for detail and design skills for a passion I love.

Through out my time in LA I was very fortunate to have a number of familiar, well known faces come to my store and as much fun as this was, when I took a trip one year to San Francisco, there was no turning back.

I set up my new store on 4th Street, San Rafael and got back to business. Out the back is where the magic happens and your visions come to life. In the well equipped workshop everything from a coffee table to a large kitchen job flows with ease and confidence. A separate building for finishing offers a dust free environment for a variety of eco-friendly finishes.

My showroom is a perfect designing space loaded with samples of wood, hardware, molding, colors and samples. You can look through an array of photographs to help you get inspiration in our designing process.

In the showroom you can also purchase:

  • Fiddes furniture wax
  • Rocky Mountain Hardware
  • Michigan Maple Butcher Block tops
  • Raymond Enkeboll carvings
  • Shaw farm house sinks
  • Rohl taps and faucets
  • Top knob hardware

Our philosophy is simple…. “We Care”

Happy customers tell friends and neighbors and come back again and we in turn get to work in a happy environment doing what we love.
