A Victorian country house

Posted on Wed, 12 Jul 2023 by KiM

This exceptional house once belonged to a member of Queen Victoria’s household. It has now been painstakingly restored by its current owner who approached us to reconfigure the kitchen and pantry spaces which were a muddle of small rooms unsuitable for everyday dining and hosting informal supper parties. As often happens, our reach then spread to other areas of the house. In this case, we were also invited to design and make furniture for a guest kitchen, bedroom wardrobes and a bookshelf and bench seat set within a turret. Our work in this stunning house then extended to the billiard room and a kitchen for the cottage.
The bespoke joinery of Artichoke is what any/every period home needs to bring it back to its former glory and make it effortlessly functional and beautiful. The work they contributed in this home is spectacular and will only become more so over time.

That’s about as perfect English as you could possibly get, that curved wall with curved shelves…wallpapered… gawhhhh. And the staircase and the little seat alcove and the covering for the fridge and and and.
