How it all started
Our founder, former RAF engineer Roger Parrish, established Intone Design back in 1983 and since then we have developed an enviable reputation for inspired kitchen design and bespoke cabinetry. But despite our impressive success, the emphasis here remains on a personal approach which puts the customer at the centre of everything we do. Roger has since been joined in the business by his daughter Laura and son-in-law Matt who lead a dedicated team of designers, craftsmen and fitters based at our Lincolnshire HQ.
Life at Intone Design is very much a family affair and it shows. We care about each other and we care about our customers. Attention to detail and a passion for exemplary customer service lie at the heart of the Intone Design experience.
