Special Mad March Hare Event

By Events

In response to the current interest in our Stock Pieces and Limited Editions, we are organising a special event on the weekend of the 28th and 29th MARCH.   Whether you are looking to refresh your home for spring, get involved with this summer’s celebrations for Magna Carta, Agincourt and Waterloo or bag an incredible bargain, you will enjoy this event.

By popular demand, we are arranging an extensive display of available stock to be displayed in the showroom and workshops to create a unique opportunity to enjoy the benefits of buying stock pieces. As well as offering even better value, stock pieces are available for immediate delivery. A selection of previously owned pieces will also be available, some even on the basis of any reasonable offer being accepted. Why not come along and enjoy visiting the workshops and take advantage of our decades of experience in creating and looking after the finest hand crafted furniture.

Should your exact requirements not be fully available from stock, we can of course create any other pieces exactly as you require them to complement any stock purchases and existing furniture. We can even refurbish or remodel your existing pieces.   We will be happy to help you with those important decisions when choosing the furniture for you to enjoy and others to envy.

As the crescendo builds for the summer celebrations for the signing of the Magna Carta and the Battles of Agincourt and Waterloo, we will be pleased to let you explore our limited editions that are already well subscribed. Many will remember how our Trafalgar pieces were so heavily over subscribed that they rapidly appreciated even before the event.

With ample free parking and easy access, why not enjoy the weekend at Luxury in Wood ahead of the Easter mayhem and enhance and refresh your home in time for start of the spring season.

Following the flurry of interest in our Winston Churchill chair following the anniversary of his funeral it is time to look forward to three further historically important events for our Country this year:

800 years ago the beginnings of Britain’s democratic system were enshrined in the Great Charter. 18 of the Limited edition Magna Carta joined stools have already been reserved.
See http://stewartlinford.com/showcase/magna-carta-joined-stool/

200 years ago The Battle of Waterloo saw another defining moment in Britain’s proud history.  To capture the spirit of the ‘Iron Duke’ we created very special chairs to enjoy now and for future generations.
See http://stewartlinford.com/showcase/waterloo-chair/

600 years ago at the battle of Agincourt again witnessed the British tenacity and courage captured now by a piece of pure English craftsmanship.

FIRST IMPRESSIONS……

By Uncategorized

This recently completed special commission soon became the talk of the neighbourhood.  Superb selections of English burr oak were combined and crafted with great skill and care by our award-winning team.  The pure natural finish was achieved through scores of hours hand-sanding and multiple applications of ‘Osmo’ oil.  Each of the pair of hand-carved acorns turn, one to reveal the keyhole, the other  reveals Stewart Linford’s enamel maker’s badge.  Symmetry is the hall mark of professional woodwork, therefore the owner’s mail goes into a separate post box.  A letterbox would have created the wrong impression.

Premium Selected Stock

By Uncategorized

This classic Fan back dining suite boasts a wealth of features designed during the ‘golden age’ of English cabinet making.  The greatest eighteenth century cabinet maker Thomas Chippendale himself, inspired these models.  This ‘long set’ of eight side chairs plus two arms was created by our Master Craftsmen in English burr and figured oak.  The extending twin-pedestal table also made in our High Wycombe workshops is finished using a 12-stage polishing process that enhances the grain and figure of each piece and provides that ‘must-touch’, hard wearing surface.  This suite is available now at an unbeatable price, call 01494 537957 for further information. Many other classic and contemporary pieces available.

Compact Contemporary Chairs

King hairpin bend armchairSide of hairpin armchairGodolphin Armchair

Our clients required two pairs of comfortable armchairs, both light in weight and colour,  for their recent breakfast room makeover.  As both bespoke Windsor and upholstered easy chairs are now made at St. Georges Works the commission is well suited to our skilled Crafts people.

English ash was chosen for the frames as it is tough and strong with the advantage of being a light clean hardwood. The pair of Windsor elbow chairs are new designs fitted with hairpin back bows, fine proportions yet very strong.

The elegant Goldophin easy chairs are supremely comfortable yet occupy a small footprint,  with an upright back and compact neatly upholstered arms.   The fabric chosen from our extensive array of pattern books was a fine weave Jane Churchill Karla beige.   You can see further examples of this and other superb models on: www.greengate.co.uk
