Handmade Office

Lady Delia Goodenough

This house is a wonderful period property and so we aimed to carry through it’s charm and characteristics to this now home study.

In these photos you can see our bespoke cabinetry, all hand-painted in white with file and stationery drawers, file cupboards and adjustable shelves. The solid constructed box drawers were measured to suit all sizes of box files and also to take the weight which was a key requirement.

We accented the shelves with spot lighting to make a feature of the objects being displayed and all cabinetry were fitted with soft-close doors and drawers.

All the cabinetry is bespoke and handmade in the Norfolk Workshop, finished with pristine white worktops.

We scribed the furniture to match the low, uneven ceiling which is part of the character of this period property. This ensured our tulip wood painted coving married up perfectly. After all, we pride ourselves on having an eye for the smallest of details!

I commissioned the Norfolk Workshop to do two quite technically difficult rooms as this is a very old house and no wall or floor is level or straight. Everything has to be precision made to fit both the house and to fulfil its purpose. The first room was my office which required cupboards and drawers to fit files and office equipment. It also needed specific lighting and wiring to be incorporated within the units. The whole room is in white to keep it light with a feeling of space. The final result was perfect and is now a great place to work. I couldn’t be happier. Based on their work I then commissioned the team to create a wine cellar in solid oak with, again, very specific and detailed measurements to keep wine in various sized bottles and boxes. Again, it was a testing task but the finished result is stunning. The attention to detail in every single shelf is breathtaking and we couldn’t be more pleased. I have recommended the team to friends who have seen their work here and have absolutely no hesitation in providing a reference if required.
