Private Residence - Surrey

We were asked by Wish London to make a number of bespoke pieces for a private residential project in Surrey.


One of the highlights of this project was manufacturing a superb desk from initial designs Wish London sent to us. The chosen timber finish is a wonderful book matched walnut burl in high gloss with brass inlay detailing.

The clients were quite particular about how the walnut should look, and so our project coordinator made veneer cut-outs and created a map from the shop drawing to detail where each panel would be positioned.

Once the client had approved the layout, the panels were applied and finished using a UV resistant lacquer so that the desk would be able to withstand the bright sunshine coming into the study area.

The factory sent us a number of images of the desk throughout the production process

Once completed, the final images of the desk were taken in our factory studio. The rich hue of the walnut and the bookmatching detail can be seen clearly. The desk features lockable push latch drawers and there is a sliding tray situated behind the door on the left.

The bespoke power bar, as specified by the client, comes with a combination of power, data and USB sockets. We then developed a design to house the unit in-desk and created an attractive removable faceplate using the same brass metal found on the exterior.

The cable channels run up from a floor box and then travel up and underneath the dark blue leather upholstered top with two additional outlets on each side of the desk where a removable upholstered grommet is used.

One of the other key pieces we produced for this project is a high gloss extendable dining table measuring 4.4 meters.

The high gloss finish perfectly mirrors the absolutely stunning fresco landscape on the surrounding walls and is only broken by the mirror finish brass inlay detailing found on the top and base of the table.

The 12 side chairs and 2 carvers were made in the same high gloss timber as the table and are upholstered in a cream velvet.

Deciding the exact size of the table was helped by drawing the plan view to show the chairs around the table.

Removing the extension leaves and storing them in the specially made storage bags, the table can close down to 3.2 meters.

Other pieces in the dining room include a very clean brushed bronze console with a brown smoked glass top as shown below:

One of the more unusual pieces we produced for this project was a library chair that folds over to become a set of steps.

Our craftsmen created the chair from our detailed shop drawings, and the final piece is shown below in situ with a dark timber finish and gold paint details.

We also made a coffee table for the study which is a custom version of the Bolier Occasional 43028 side table. Instead of using the standard gold leaf, we made the larger frame using brushed brass.

The client wanted the Arebescato marble top to have lots of interesting veining so we sent the designer a photograph of the actual stone slab we would cut from for their approval.

There is also a bespoke console in one of the adjoining rooms that uses the same materials to stunning effect.

A special thank you must go to the clients for making the development process such fun and allowing us to use photographs of the furniture pieces in the spaces they were designed for. A truly magnificent residence.
