Materials We Work With

Despite our expertise being in woodwork, we also work with a wide range of other materials to give your pub bar counter that unique finish. We like to include a variety of different woods to give your wood bar counter something special; different hardwoods, softwoods, plywood, MDF and veneers can add different elements to your bar counter, depending on your requirements.

If you want a sleek and stylish finish to your custom bar counter, we also work with metal, acrylic, glass and even Corian finishes to create a modern feeling finishing touch. When these materials are combined with our bespoke wooden bar counters, you get the best of all worlds – a practical and flexible solution for staff with a stylish customer-facing exterior. Our experienced team have created a range of amazing shop window displays, retail merchandising units and bar counters that are currently displayed all around the UK and worldwide!

Our Process

Our design and build process is the same whether you need a bar counter or bespoke reception desk. Our completely personalised and hands-on approach gives you the opportunity to be involved every step of the way, leaving you with a final product you’re proud of.

Design – Our personalised bar counter design process starts at the very conception of your idea – whether you just have a starting concept or completely thought out design, we can help you to develop your bar counter design until you’re 100% satisfied. Completing technical drawings, 3D renders and more to help you visualise the finished product, you’ll be able to see how your bespoke bar countertop will look before it even exists. At this stage, you’ll give us all of your size, storage and other specifications so we can make sure to include everything you need.

Build – Once you’re completely happy with your bespoke bar counter design, we’ll pass off all of the technical drawings onto our very own build team. Our specialisms in woodwork and fabrication will help us to build the perfect wooden bar counter for you – our team uses industry standard equipment and manufacturing techniques to craft your bar or pub counter, finished with any custom graphics or lighting you wanted in your design.


“The London Display Company went above and beyond in supporting us with the launch of our pop up shop on Monmouth St, Covent Garden. From conception to launch, they dedicated time and energy into ensuring it was perfect – I can not thank them enough for bringing our project to life. I strongly recommend LDC to anyone looking to develop a pop up shop/retail space!”

Covid-19 Update

We’re open and back to work!

As we continue to adapt our designs and response to how we will build exhibition spaces throughout 2020 and beyond, we look at ways to better improve the built environment following COVID.

Regarding UK public exhibitions, we’re continuing to keep a close eye on governmental guidelines and maintaining communication with our valued clients. Any updates and protocols that may come into play tailored to the events & exhibition industry, we’re here and ready to assist you.

As we come out of the lockdown in the UK, we expect an influx of projects to return where earlier shows have been postponed to later in the year. We will do our best to facilitate last minute orders but strongly recommend giving us early notice where possible.

Internationally, we’re already back to work, delivering our projects and services overseas as many EU nations open up.
