"Mary Dunch's Chair"
A recreation of a Caqueteuse Chair in English Oak. This chair was produced as part of a project for The National Trust and the BBC, at Avebury Manor in Wiltshire. The aim was to create a room of furniture as it would have been if you had walked into the room in 1540. The design is based on a favorite chair of mine from the period, and intended to be the chair used by the wife of the owner of Avebury Manor at the time, William Dunch. The name caqueteuse translates to gossip's chair.

William Dunch's chair
Perhaps a slightly unusual choice of design, but what I would consider an elegant chair of its type from the period. Based heavily on a Welsh chair from the period belonging to a wealthy man with strong links to Elizabeth 1 and the Tudor court - as was William Dunch.
Four Poster Bed
A recreation of a four poster bed in Honduran Mahogany, with a gilded canopy. The design is an adaptation of a collection of component parts supplied by the client, originally used in a number of beds from different periods. From these parts we refined the design into a beautifully elegant and functional bed.
