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 made a big cabinet for us and we are absolutely thrilled with it. (It took me a week before I could bear to put anything inside as I just kept admiring it!) We were very impressed with the help and advice we received, and his attention to detail. Ian was easy to work with, he was on time, on budget and most importantly of all, produced work of the highest standard. We have no hesitation in recommending him, and would be delighted to show our cabinet to any potential customers.
