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.

  • I would like to say how pleased we are with the bookcase and sideboard that you made for my daughter's flat in Southsea. The careful matching of the timber with that already in the room adds to the impact that the items make in that setting. It was very satisfying to get furniture made to measure and accurately fitted to the position selected for them. Many thanks for a project well completed.
