How to commission

Commissioning is easy

To commission a piece from Petter Southall, please contact Petter’s showroom, Sladers Yard Gallery on or call 44 (0)1308 459511. We will listen your ideas, needs and preferences. If Petter has an existing design that might work for you we will show it to you and often we can find a piece you like that can be altered to suit your needs.

New designs

Petter can also design a piece for you. He may need to come and visit your space to help decide what would work best or to present his ideas to you. He usually produces drawings of the piece with estimated costs. Once he is making the piece, the detailing and design decisions are made as he goes along in response to the timber and the piece as it develops.


A design fee is chargeable for new designs as part of the price of the work when you agree the design and costs or as a cancellation fee if you do not choose to go ahead. A deposit is payable on agreement to commission. Staged payments may be appropriate. The balance is due on completion of the piece. Delivery is charged at cost.


Throughout the design and make process, we are here to talk and consult at any point. If Petter is at his bench, Anna at Sladers Yard can often answer questions and pass on information. You can come to see the work as it is being made or we can send you photographs and videos to record the process.
