Karl Andrews is co-owner of Tenacity Interiors based in Great Massingham, Norfolk UK. With business partner Trevor Pragg, Karl has run Tenacity Interiors for over ten years. The company specialises in unique interior design projects where top design skills, creative interpretation, technical experience and traditional cabinet-making skills are essential for a perfect result. From small projects such as bespoke vanity units, tables, book-cases or window seats, to creating beautiful fitted furniture for kitchens, bedrooms, dressing rooms, studies or media rooms, Tenacity Interiors work with professional interior designers and own-home-stylists on a daily basis.
Projects have included a large installation of fitted furniture in a New York Plaza apartment and also other high value homes in Central London, working with property developers and top interior designers. Projects close to home in Norfolk include high specification kitchens, top quality bedroom fitments, bathroom furniture and individual pieces of furniture. Clients range from individual home owners to property refurbishment companies. The common factor is a love of beautifully crafted fitted and free-standing furniture whatever the size or style of the property to benefit from the ‘Tenacity touch’.
Tenacity Interiors’ highly trained teams provide:
- High quality cabinet making skills using outstanding materials to achieve the perfect piece of furniture whether free standing or fitted
- Precision design and hand-crafted production of free-standing and fitted furniture to suit any era, style or finish
- Replication of items to extend a range or layout, including display cabinets, tables, doors and architectural features such as window seats and specialist ‘finishing touches’ reliant on expert cabinet making or joinery.
- Paint and lacquer finishes that are as individual as each project
- Rare materials for high level interior designs
- Expert knowledge and a personal, dedicated service for every customer
Managing Director @ From April 2004 to Present (11 years 9 months) Managing Director @ Tenacity Interiors is jointly owned by Karl Andrews and Trevor Pragg, who bought the former K&K Webster company three years after Karl started working at the Norfolk workshops. Both Karl Andrews and Trevor Pragg had many years’ experience as cabinet makers and joinery experts, and Karl’s CAD abilities continue to add to the planning, design, production and installation process. The key to Tenacity Interiors’ success is dedication to creating the highest possible quality furniture whether it is free standing or for fitted installation, using the best available materials but also interpreting ideal alternatives so that developing interior design ideas and managing project budgets is always in careful balance.
Tenacity Interiors has an impressive reputation which reflects the comprehensive cabinet making ingenuity and joinery skills that are such a rare commodity today. The range of clients Karl Andrews and Trevor Pragg work with is as diverse as the many materials they use for interior design projects, and project locations are equally varied.
Every project is regarded as an opportunity to use traditional skills and materials, often combining them with the latest techniques and products to achieve the final ‘look’ that a client wishes to see in their home or office. Tenacity Interiors has a particular niche which is in constant demand from property developers and interior designers. For those responsible for high value property portfolios, high investment property development or high quality life-style projects, Karl Andrews’ professional ability to work closely with them to create homes with a remarkable ‘wow’ factor is invaluable. Tenacity Interiors’ craftspeople have the skills which to make everything from a robust but stylish family dining table (a recent table replicated a medieval refectory table), a display case with concealed lighting for an Olympic Torch to a memorial display case for a church.
