Demi Lune Console Table

April 8, 2010

We made this table using Bird’s Eye Maple veneer with Rosewood feet and detailing to complement our client’s Art Deco period house.

This semi-circular table has a single drawer, which has a curved front and handcut dovetails.  Bird’s Eye Maple is a very hard wood with a very decorative grain structure created by the birdseyes.

Bird’s Eye Maple features in another of our table designs here.  Have a close look at our MWL desk – it’s asymmetric design allows more space for a personal computer.

Our client’s ensuite bathroom was completely renovated and updated and we were commissioned to make a dark timber corner wall-mounted cabinet.  During the design stage we prepared several timber samples, and wenge was chosen by our client.  The interior of this cabinet is lined with maple veneer.  Two of the cabinet doors, in the corner of the unit, are bifold, giving full access to the inside.  At each end of the cabinet are single door cupboards, housing pull-out wire baskets.  The doors have soft close mechanisms.

The wall mounted cabinet leaves plenty of room for feet when using the washbasins, and we were able to mount the unit at exactly the right height for our client’s comfort.  You can see more of our bathroom cabinets here.

Entrance Hall Furniture

December 1, 2008

Our clients presented a sketch of their idea for entrance hall furniture for their Victorian house, and this formed the starting point of our design.  They are an active family needing somewhere to store coats, hats, gloves, scarves, walking sticks and umbrellas.  They also needed space left in the entrance hall for their golf clubs.  They wanted design and manufacture only and wanted it supplied as a kit so that they could collect and fit the furniture themselves.

Contemporary Bedroom furniture with desk

November 17, 2008

Our client wanted a corner desk for his computer, as well as plenty of storage space in his new build apartment.  The wardrobes have sliding doors, and are fitted with shoe racks, drawer units and shelves, as well as hanging rails.

The computer desk has space for cables to be tidily hidden away.  Our client chose maple to keep the light, contemporary feel for his bedroom.
