You will also be able to purchase smaller items from us – we will have clocks, mirrors, chopping boards, cheese boards and a selection of jewellery boxes, which all make excellent gifts.

You will be able to discuss your furniture needs with David, who will be delighted to provide you with initial ideas for development.

This cabinet is designed for large model boats to be displayed behind locked glass paneled doors.  A dolls house will be displayed on top.  Our client requested a light timber – we used sycamore and made the handles and joint detailing in yew.

David carved the work of calligrapher Richard Crookes into the top of this console table. Inlaid cherry represents the ‘twig’ and Stephanie’s stitched hemp cord represents the ‘twine’.

Country House master bedroom

Our client moved into his new apartment in a renovated Regency country house and commissioned us to make wardrobes and bedside cupboards for the master bedroom.  These wardrobes had to match the proportions of the room with its high ceiling and architectural detail.  Our client chose sycamore and bird’s eye maple to maintain the light airy atmosphere in this room.  The wardrobes contain short and long hanging, shelves and pull-out shoe racks.

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.
