Oak wardrobes for 17th Century House

Bournes Fine Furniture was asked to design bespoke oak wardrobes for a 17th century farmhouse near Guildford in Surrey.  Being true to the period we styled the wardrobes with raised and fielded panels, finished them with a jacobean dark oak stain and hand waxed in black to create age.  Solid brass antique hinges and knobs were added to the finished piece.  The central section of the wardrobe had a series of pull out drawers similar in style to a tailors closet to offer maximum storeage and either side we arranged full and short hanging with shelves above and below.  These wardrobes fitted perfectly in the oldest part of the house and offered a modern functionality with no loss of period style.

  • Ian has built a layout of oak cupboards and drawer units for our dressing room. The room was an unusual shape and there wasn't a straight edge in the place. Ian made great suggestions on how best to utilise the space and took great care over getting his measurements right. Dealing with him throughout was a pleasure. He is a craftsman who cares that his output is as good as it can be. We are looking forward to the next job he will do for us.

    AS, Balcombe
