Bespoke alcove dining room cabinets



These bespoke alcove dining room cabinets were commissioned for a residence in the historic town of Farnham, Surrey. They are a classic example of the high end, handcrafted, fitted furniture we create. The cabinets have a flawless satin matt painted finish in Farrow and Ball Pointing, a soft, warm white named after the colour of lime pointing used in traditional brickwork. The traditional design of the alcove display and storage cabinets have an elegant charm which gives the dining room a stylish period look that will stand the test of time. It’s now a beautiful space to host dinner parties and family gatherings.

Period-style cabinetry

The solid wood period-style cabinetry features raised and fielded lower door panels, surrounded by decorative panel beading. Other historic details include matching handcrafted wall panelling above the stone fireplace, which visually connects the two alcove cabinets and pilasters with stopped fluted framing. Also note the decorative dado rail which wraps around the cabinets and continues onto the wall panelling.

Exquisite polished solid brass cabinet knobs with matching brass traditional butt hinges complete the look.

Handmade glazed cabinet doors

The exquisite glass doors feature nine separate hand cut panes of glass, which were individually crafted and fitted. The bespoke shelves in the upper alcove cabinets are made with extra strong 10mm safety glass for displaying heavy cherished pieces. We also used low-iron glass. This is crystal clear, unlike standard glass which has a green tinge. Its exceptional clarity makes it ideal for display cabinets, especially lighted ones. Here, the concealed integrated LED lighting illuminates the luxurious tableware and adds warmth and sparkle to the dining room, especially in the evening.
