Our History

Merik was set up by Eric and Maggie (hence “Merik”) in 2014 in South Oxfordshire.

The workshop is based close to where they live with their 11-year-old daughter. Prior to this Eric worked for a joinery business. The company began with only two clients but now is a successful business with over 50 clients, often high-end, with most clients returning for more projects. Merik began in a small workshop but now cooperates with Hallidays UK, a specialist in traditional wall and room panelling, in a large shared modern unit in an industrial estate workshop.

Merik was founded on the principles of providing high quality, timeless bespoke furniture, where they provide an individual personalised service to their clients, based on trust, professionalism, expertise, and commitment to detail and finest quality products and craftsmanship, contemporary and modern. Merik is increasingly working closely with architects and interior designers. They ensure that each of their projects in unique in design and have unrivalled skills in visualising and realising clients’ requirements and dreams.

Director and owner of Merik Ltd

Eric is the Director and owner of Merik Ltd and has been working in carpentry and joinery for the past 30 years.

He has a particular passion for planning and design and thrives on large projects where he has the opportunity to realise and fulfil clients’ dreams. In Eric’s spare time, of which he has little, he enjoys watching Grand Design or other programmes to do with building and renovation, so rarely leaves his work behind! He also enjoys having a quiet beer with family and friends. He is a devoted family man, and his 11-year-old daughter keeps him busy with her latest plans for her bedroom, as does Maggie, his wife (having recently moved home!) His older daughter is keeping him motivated financially with her impending marriage, but also has a passion for interior design.

Company secretary and manages Merik’s accounts

Maggie, Eric’s wife, is the other half of Merik Ltd. She is company secretary and manages Merik’s accounts. She is the go-to person for all information and is kept busy coordinating the various projects. She also manages the team - which is no easy task!

Maggie has excellent detective skills when those all-important invoices go missing, and the bane of her life is the mess in the workshop! Don’t be deceived by Maggie’s gentle appearance, she’s the boss behind the scenes!


Pawel loves his food. You can’t go wrong if you offer him a coffee, strong, with two sugars (no milk) and a few biscuits or cake! This aside, Pawel is an amazing, multi-talented craftsman, with over 30 years’ experience. He is extremely precise and resourceful in his way of work with excellent results. He started his career working on building sites as a builder and in the last few years has branched out into joinery.

Spray painter

Originally a Chef, Krystian joined Merik 4 years ago, and is an essential part of the team. He specialises in paint spraying of all furniture, working in Merik’s spray room with a spray booth. He also helps generally in the workshop and is being trained in more specialist joinery skills. In his spare time, Krystian enjoys fishing and walking his dog. His wife also keeps him busy with DIY jobs around the house, and his young daughter ensures he knows all the words to the Frozen songs!
