Fitted study furniture: Before & After

Posted by Bath Bespoke on 13 July 2018

At Bath Bespoke, all of the furniture that we create has been carefully designed and made in our Winsley workshop. Each piece is custom made to suit our clients and their homes, with every detail considered from start to finish. It takes time to create the perfect piece of furniture and our experienced team have the knowledge and skill to take an small concept and turn it into a beautiful and functional piece of furniture.

This project involved creating a range of fitted and freestanding furniture for a large townhouse in Bath. In the client’s study/living room, we were asked to create new fitted study furniture that suited the style of their Georgian home.

Handcrafted Furniture

After meeting several times with our clients in our design studio and their home, designer Tom Jones Marquez carefully created several concept designs for a fitted study desk and shelving. The furniture would feature an oak study desk and bookshelf with period style mouldings to compliment the existing architrave. The book shelving including various sized storage spaces to accommodate the client’s books, folders and home wares.

Ben Boyce and Neil Castley were the skilled craftsmen chosen to head up this project. After the designs were complete, they began to craft the furniture from oak.


The Finished Result

The small library featured a beautiful study desk and bookshelf. Crafted from oak and finished in a rich Stiffkey Blue, the study desk featured solid oak drawers and work top and also custom designed tier shelving. Alongside this, we also designed and crafted a beautiful drinks cabinet with an antique mirror back and a polished Carrara stone top. The lower cabinets were covered with a leather like material, which beautifully complemented the rest of the design and added extra depth and texture. We finished the cabinets with round brass handles from Armac Martin and also inserted brass inlay into the cabinetry, which continued the theme from the wine wall in the kitchen.

Office and library

We also added custom mouldings on top of the cabinets to match the heritage characteristics of the home, as well as the wall panelling with integrated socket holes.
