When taking on the project of renovating our 1700’s 5 bedroom carstone cottage, the main challenege was creating a different theme in each room. A theme that would be able to show the diversity and grandure of our NEW Horsemoor range.
We knew where we could find, beautiful hand crafted beds…. As well… we make them ourselves! But the task of furnishing our cottage, with other fittings was a task in it self. As we wanted to support local family business, that we’re either started or are based in Norfolk. Then we stumbled across Dove Workshops of Downham Market.
A family run business steeped in history, producing furniture for the prestigious hotels such as Claridges, The Connaught and The Berkeley. Their family business was started approximately 40 years ago with the vision of producing high quality furniture made by traditional methods. With every member of staff boasting a wealth of knowledge to ensure the piece of furniture is completed from start to finish with expertise and traditional craftsmanship such as French polishing, wood carving and gilding to name but a few.
Melissa McDonald states “A piece of furniture is born from an original idea from the client. Immediately I knew we could commission some great pieces to fit into the new soon to be renovated room settings to complement the fantastic beds. After weeks of decisions on fabrics, wood choice, metalwork, paint finishes and other details I believe the end result is fantastic. A truly bespoke service!”
But not only do they offer a fabulous bespoke service, they also offer a “limit less” renovation service!! Being able to reupholstery, repolish and repair vintage pieces of furniture back to the way it once used to be.
Being able to furnish our show cottage with their wonderful and fabulous bespoke pieces, of furniture has been an absolute delight and most of all we can not fault the service.
