Hi Dean
Sorry late email but just wanted to say.
So pleased with the impello furniture range I ordered from you…in frost white…
Delivery guys brilliant and first class service offered by you guys by person or email.
I’m saving my pennies because I wished I ordered the double chest than the smaller one as shown as I think there was the room and being a new build desperate for storage to replace..
Thank you once again and I will be spreading
The word..

From: Mike & Kathy 31/7/19

Dear Dean and Richard,

We write to thank you so much for your prompt attention in rectifying the door of the TV Unit, following our ‘accident’ of treating the door as ‘hinged’ and not ‘sliding’.

It was very refreshing to find how willing both of you were to help deal with the problem, offering to come out the same day.

Richard duly attended on Monday evening, assessed the situation and decided that the door needed ‘adjustment’.  Not only that he went ‘the extra mile’ and decided that both doors should be taken back to the factory to carry out the adjustment.

Yesterday afternoon Richard returned with the doors and refitted them to the unit. We are very pleased with the result.

We thank you once again Richard for giving your time so generously, and for the professional and courteous way you dealt with the matter. Excellent service throughout for which we are extremely grateful.

Kind regards,

Mike and Kathy Paul

Hi Dean

Just to let you know the cupboard was delivered this morning and I am very pleased with it, everything as agreed.
Also, to say that everything went exactly as your email, Richard phoned and the driver phoned this morning. I was able to check the cupboard on delivery, he brought two knob options because on the spec we said oak knob but omitted to say ‘painted white’ . The driver put the white one on for me which was what I wanted.

I have transferred the payment as agreed.

Dean from beginning to end you have handled this enquiry brilliantly, it is a pleasure to do business with a company that clearly knows what it is doing and is very customer focused.

Well done and thanks very much.

Best wishes


From: John Paul 23/7/20 Wrexham 

Hi Dean.

The sideboard with wine rack shelves arrived today and the workmanship and quality and finish of the wood is beautiful. It is actually a shame to shut the door on them. I have attached a few photos for you. Many thanks once again for your design input and service.


From: Jane Pokolinski 31/7/20 Salisbury

Hi Dean,

I have just come home after a volunteer session at the hospital, to see the chest of drawers for the first time.  It’s beautiful.  And I’m delighted with the choice of finish.

Mark took the delivery this morning and he apologises he forgot to return the samples.  We will drop them off to you sometime over the next week.  I hope that’s ok.

He has also paid the invoice. I hope that’s come through safely.

Many thanks Dean, for such great furniture and service.  They have transformed our bedroom.

Best wishes

From: Carol Smith 1/10/20 TIDWORTH


Thank you for your exceptional products and professional service.

From the very first contact with your company, the service has been friendly and professional. Today are bedroom furniture arrived,at the allotted time and it looks stunning. The two gentleman who delivered and erected the furniture gave a first class service. The service of constructing the wardrobe insitu, was required because it is difficult to carry large objects up the stairs. The sliding doors on the wardrobe glide effortlessly and the drawers to the dressing table move smoothly. Providing some touch up paint was a great idea and the explaination of how to apply it was perfect.

I will not hesitate to recommend your company to all my friends and family.

Thank you again.



From: Rebecca Lincoln : 2/10/20 Salisbury,

Dear Dean

I just wanted to thank you again for the amazing service that you have given us for our dining room table and chairs that we ordered from you. The new top is perfect, and as the table is narrower than we originally ordered, the longer length means that we can now sit 10 people around the table. As promised I posted a 5 star review on Google this morning, and here is a testimonial for your website.

Thank you to everyone at Con-tempo furniture for our wonderful dining room table and chairs. We are very impressed with the quality, the delivery was on time, and your customer service far exceeded our expectations. We would not hesitate to recommend you to our friends and family, and if we ever need to buy furniture again, Con-tempo would be the first shop that we will come to.

There were no further hiccups and we did indeed receive a successful delivery of the furniture today. Now unwrapped and in situ in the room – we are delighted with our purchase.

Won’t hesitate to purchase from you again if there is any future pieces we require. Great products and service.

Thanks for all your help.


From: Geraldine: 23/12/20 GERRARDS CROSS.

Good morning Dean
Just to confirm that I have paid the furniture bill this morning, sorry I did promise to do so last night.
The furniture looks really beautiful and is perfect for the bedroom. May I also thank the two lovely gentlemen that delivered the furniture, they were highly professional, helpful and fun – a credit to your company.
My sincere apologies for incorrectly ordering two bed-side tables instead of bed-side cupboards. It is very gracious of you to agree to me retaining them until the bed-side cupboards are available. I promise to love and look after them and return them in the lovely condition they arrived in.
May I wish you and the company a very happy Christmas and a prosperous New year.
My kindest regards Geraldine

The larder is now standing proudly in our kitchen. A larder is a larder, isn’t it?
Yes, but this is absolutely fantastic! It’s not too fancy, but still has a lovely magnificence about it. The workmanship is second to none.
Thank you again.
The delivery chaps had a small problem with fitting the handles (slightly wonky!) but they sorted it in the end.

Review …5 stars Nigel and Jo : 11/4/21 Peasedown St John,

Hi Dean,

I have tried today to put a review on for you after exceptional service you gave us recently but could not get the review on as an error kept coming up.

Hopefully you can add this to your page:

After buying our dining room table and chairs from Con-tempo a number of years ago, we unfortunately had a chair leg snap. Contacting Con-tempo and asking if they could repair it, we took it over to the workshop.
Although it was a number of years ago we bought the chair so totally out of any guarantee, Dean and his team not only did a miracle of a repair for us, but kindly did it at no charge.
What fantastic Customer Service for a customer of the past ….
Thank you
Nigel and Jo, Peasedown St John
