Joseph John Carpentry in Worthing near Brighton West Sussex

Bespoke Carpentry and Design - A Family Tradition

We are master craftsmen in wood based in the South-East of England.

Operating from a workshop in Worthing, we have created bespoke carpentry and joinery projects across Southern England.

Sussex carpenters for generations

Working with wood has been the thread running through the Lillywhite family for three generations – our roots are around the Goodwood Estate in West Sussex. Beginning with a saw mill in East Dean, our inheritance is in how we bring a superior degree of care and quality to our workmanship.

Interior design and carpentry

Joseph John was founded by husband and wife, Joseph and Electra. Combining both their skills, Joseph as a master craftsman and with a passion for woodwork and Electra as an interior designer with a love of renovations and a family background in metal fabrications. The company was formed with one key principle in mind – high quality workmanship led by design.
The company has grown to house a small loyal team of designers and cabinet makers all working to create beautiful bespoke designs and handcrafted furniture solutions.
