Why we love Neptune

We love that Neptune does not compromise on the product in any way: every visible or invisible design feature is a point of great pride. The quality of engineering is a result of nearly 20 years spent mastering the processes involved to create furniture of a superior standard.

Neptune takes great care to design furniture that is not only functional and beautiful, but also a pleasure to use. The emphasis is on traditional styles with a contemporary twist and innovation enhanced by the delicate touch of a skilled craftsman.

Only the finest grade of materials are ever used – MDF is never an option! This not only makes the work of carpenters and finishers easier as materials do not fail in production but also means less waste and greater efficiency – which is better for the planet and better for your wallet.

Neptune cabinets offer much more than just a pretty face. Open the cabinet door and you will see impeccable attention to detail is paid to every inch. Each cabinet is crafted carefully by hand using traditional mortise and tenon joints and physically locked with a dowel. The drawers consist of dovetail jointing and can carry a massive 30kgs.


The focus on durability is one of the cornerstones of Neptune design. During the early days of testing, the design team were so confident in the strength of their joinery that they decided to throw a cabinet out a 1st floor window.  Three times!  It sounds a bit rock-star, and clearly not something we’d recommend when your cabinets arrive, but it proved that the quality of materials and craftsmanship were paramount.

Lastly, the Neptune collection offers an incredible range of choice. With a carefully considered palette of paint colours, finishes, sizes, handles and hinges to choose from, you can tailor Neptune’s elegant and authentic furniture to your home. Combine this with the hidden extras such as soft-close drawer runners, removable covers, plate grooves and washable linens and you have beautiful, clever pieces for your home that are built to last a lifetime.

Why Neptune by Sims Hilditch?

Neptune by Sims Hilditch has its roots in two companies, which have put their heads together to create an exciting new venture offering outstanding value.

In 1996, Giles Redman and John Sims Hilditch founded Neptune with the mission to create a collection of quality furniture for the home and garden. Around the same time Emma Sims Hilditch – John’s wife – embarked on a path which led her to set up Sims Hilditch; a Cotswold-based interior design studio, which creates bespoke interiors for luxury residential and commercial properties.

Both companies have grown to be leaders in their respective fields, with John and Giles naturally drawing on Emma’s designer expertise to develop the fabulous Neptune look.

When Emma realised there was a growing demand to make kitchen design more accessible to a wider market, it made perfect sense to partner with Neptune.

Thus Neptune by Sims Hilditch was founded: a new and exciting entity consisting of a handpicked team of first-rate kitchen designers who specialise in integrating Neptune product into the home.

Neptune by Sims Hilditch is a marriage of design and craftsmanship creating spaces that genuinely enhance quality of life. To arrange your free consultation with one of our team please do get in touch – we’d love to hear from you.
