A joinery firm’s hardwood four-poster spa bath designs are now featuring in the front windows of 12 showrooms run by luxury bathroom company Ripples.

The products made by Bath-based Hawker Joinery Ltd, a member of the British Woodworking Federation, have become big sellers and are now produced to customer specifications at the rate of one a month.

Hawker undertook its first contract for Ripples in the early 1990s. Showrooms now stretch from Bournemouth to Solihull.
