Dower House, Gloucestershire

William Garvey Ltd as Manufacturers

British Furniture Designers & Makers, William Garvey, were commissioned to make furniture for the dower house of a Gloucestershire property.

 

William Garvey have made a group of pieces of furniture commissioned by the furniture designer Catriona Braybrooke, a long term client, who designs solid timber furniture, a rarity in present days and a pleasure for wood workers to create in this way.

 

Catriona, a furniture designer with her own concept designs, commissioned William Garvey to create a collection of freestanding wooden furniture for the kitchen, bathroom, dining and bedroom areas.

 

It was important for William Garvey to create quality pieces of furniture made from material sympathetic to the architecture of this Gloucestershire home and its rich history. Careful discussion led to the specification of hardwood timbers such as Oak, Ash, and Black Walnut which offer a natural raw beauty with enhanced durability and strength: ideal for an active home set in the Gloucestershire countryside.  

 

William Garvey were responsible for project management, surveying, working drawings, CNC, manufacture, polishing, installation, materials and delivery.
