How would you describe your style?

It's hard to describe what I buy as it changes all the time, but the common thread is something well designed and well-made that I can see working in homes, offices and hospitality settings. At the moment, 1950s – 1970s Italian style is captivating me. It's exciting to discover a neglected item and visualise its potential. I have wonderful restorers who revitalise almost every piece in some way. I like furniture to function - doors, drawers and locks work, legs and arms are wobble free, chairs and sofas are reupholstered - not just recovered, and lighting is rewired and PAT tested.

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

For us, bespoke means that every piece is entirely handmade to order. We work with a small team of skilled craftsmen and women. Each element of the design can be customised to create a unique piece. We pay meticulous attention to detail at every stage of our service and pride ourselves on making the process simple and clear. Whether you’d like an oversized brass framed mirror or a chest of drawers to house a TV for example, we’ll work on the design with you, providing CAD drawings and samples of finishes for approval. The end result is something you can cherish and appreciate for years.
