Please describe a recently completed project or tell us about the bespoke service that you offer

"Cheffins recently completed a project with Benedict Foley and Daniel Slowik, where the designers selected items from the Cheffins Fine Sale to decorate their Suffolk cottage afresh, and demonstrate how antiques can be used in multiple ways, whilst consistently being the sustainable method for sourcing furniture. As Benedict says, "we look to Cheffins to see how we can furnish our new home with stylish and well-made pieces suited to a Country place.""
