The Turret

Our designs are often inspired by fine, antique joinery found in grand period houses.
In this project, the client had seen an image of a bench seat which she loved. It was first assumed to be from Castle Drogo, but turned out to be closer to home; it was discovered by chance in Tyntesfield House by our Project Director on a family outing.

Design Details

The turret seating, just off the main sitting room,  is intended as a quiet place to play cards or chess. It is made of French oak and hand finished to replicate the look and feel of decades of sunlight and use.

Lift-up seats allow for storage and house radiators to offer warmth and comfort. The aged brass metal work grilles are bespoke.
