Collectors Cupboards in the Japanese Taste

These cupboards were designed by architect Robin Walker for the house in Totteridge which won an RIBA award in 2013. They are to house the client’s collection of Japanese ceramics.

We’ve made dozens of these over the years, paying particular attention to design, detail and quality.

Reception Desk


It makes a change from our more traditional work to undertake an up-to the-minute commission like this one.

Cabin Boy


A very fortunate young man had his rather small bedroom turned into a ship’s cabin by us.

Dining Table

In the style of George Bullock, the celebrated Regency designer, this 7 foot 6 inch diameter table is inlaid with English burr woods. Without doubt one of our finest commissions.

A Breakfront Bookcase


A classic design used to great effect in the double alcove between two chimney breasts. The existing picture rail is carried around the bookcase and the panel mould is copied from the original.

A Pirate Chest

Used to store cushions in a Wiltshire garden.

A Country Bookcase

In oak with hand made iron fittings.
