The television cabinet shown is a piece we are particularly proud of, with its gloss lacquered exterior inlaid with patinated brass patterning, and a dark walnut interior. The upholstered dining chairs were inspired by revered designer Dupre-Lafon; they feature frames in ebonised Beech, upholstery in cream leather and bespoke brasswork. We also create many specialist finishes for wall panelling, such as cracked gesso which can be used as the base for a multitude of effects including the matt brown panels shown. Our antiqued mirror glass is also very effective as an interior finish, bringing light and ambiance to a room. Traditionally silvered and antiqued by hand in our glass workshop in Shropshire we are able to emulate the authentic feel of an antique mirror, which can then be interpreted in a contemporary style.
