Chocolate coloured walnut desk

The overall appearance is very simple but the finished desk is a very tactile luxury piece. The high quality goes throughout with the same high level of finish inside the drawer box.

Shoreditch aged pine kitchen

Relaxed-aged-pine-kitchen-with-long-floating-shelves

Shoreditch aged pine kitchen. Small and uncluttered with cabinets colour matched to the existing pine joinery in the room. The cabinet interiors are in modern laminate boards to be harder wearing and durable enough to withstand normal kitchen wear and tear. The worktop is in hard wearing corian. The long, narrow room is nice and bright thanks to a skylight at the far end of the room. That along with the old floor tiles and aged pine kitchen units give the room a relaxed feel, more continental than busy London. Continue reading “Shoreditch aged pine kitchen”

Walnut and cedar wardrobe

walnut-and-cedar-wardrobe

A tall, freestanding wardrobe in American black walnut with a cedar of Lebanon back and drawer interiors.

Drawers were so well fitted on traditional runners that you couldn’t slip a piece of paper through the drawer gaps once closed. The top drawer has a lock but that was more for prying eyes than moths.

Woodclose bedroom

Another personal project, the bedroom at Woodclose. Every opportunity  to make something taken , from the mirror stand on the chest of drawers to the light switch above the bed.

In the back corner is a pitch pine bookcase that was built around the roof support. I wasn’t going to let some boxed in steel beam deprive me of storage space. Continue reading “Woodclose bedroom”

Tillie’s Pimlico kitchen

Please excuse the choppy photography. One very small but very cute and perfectly functional kitchen my camera just couldn’t fit in. Every little detail received the same attention, from the client’s enamel door knobs she found in Anthropologie to the cooker hood which had to be taken apart and powder coated a warm white to match the whitewashed ash cabinets. Continue reading “Tillie’s Pimlico kitchen”

Vaulted file cabinet in oak

A tall storage cabinet for an office in Victoria. This was for a client who wanted something more than just functional to impress their clients.

Continue reading “Vaulted file cabinet in oak”

Love seat

Loveseat

Sometimes commissions become something quite different from the initial conversations. This was intended to be a single loveseat, no upholstery, wood carved into an s-shape with the two seats facing toward each other for relaxed conversation or romantically looking into each other’s eyes.
