FULLY FITTED BESPOKE KITCHEN
This current project is almost finished, a made-to-measure wood and steel kitchen. We are delighted with the progress and design of this kitchen, latest picture below.
It has many lovely details such as steel bow ties along the joint of the solid Oak, hand-scorched worktop.
We have recently added one of our beautiful dining table and chair sets, like the worktop the table has steel bow ties and has been hand-scorched, they really complement each other well.
This has been a really enjoyable project to work on, we are all really looking forward to seeing the final finish very soon.
We are almost at the final stage with only a few finishing touches to be made, our client is exceptionally happy with how it is coming along.
This is another little current project and a personal favourite of ours. The live edge of the wood and bow tie joints give this table a unique charm.
The oak has been scorched, this brings out the grain of the wood beautifully and creates a distinctive rich colour.
We are really happy with how the final coffee table looks, the incorporated circle in the steel frame complements it well.
Another personal favourite and current project, the natural curve of the wood and the live edge adding character.
The steel frame works well with the angles on this piece, the oak has been burnt which adds a lovely depth of colour.
We couldn’t be happier with the outcome of this bench, the curved wood with the live edge was a pleasure to work with and the finished result is something distinctive and unique.
LIVE EDGE CHAIRS
Really enjoyed working on these live edge Oak chairs, these particular ones have been treated for outdoor use and would be a statement in any garden. These can be made and finished for interior spaces also. Our client were so happy with these, they kindly allowed us to borrow them back for the East Anglian Game & Country fair in April this year.
The steel is galvanised and black powder coated and the wood is also treated for outside use. The contrast between the black and the live edge wood works really well, I am very happy with the final results of these.
LIVE EDGE OAK TABLE & BENCHES
We could not be more happy with how this table and benches have turned out, they have been a most enjoyable project to work on. They were made with the East Anglian Game & Country fair in mind, the live edge finish is very popular and a totally unique as with the live edge no two can be the same.
The clear laquer finish on this Oak table has worked beautifully, and the black powder coated steel legs compliment the Oak really well. With many enquiries on smaller or larger versions of this set including bench and chair combinations, this was by far our biggest attraction at the Game & Country fair.
BLACK STEEL GATES WITH CHESTNUT INLAY
These gates were just recently fitted May 102019, we and the clients are extremely happy with the results of these gates. The frames have been galvanised and black powder coated, and then fitted with inlays of 20mm Chestnut. The contrast between the Chestnut and black steel frames work really well together.
It was a really good project to work on and another welcomed challenge, its great to have a lot of varying projects here at Dog House Design. It makes every project interesting , motivating and inspiring and reinforces our beliefs in the sustainability and flexibility of working with wood and steel combined.
MANGO TELEVISION & STORAGE UNIT
This Television and storage unit was commissioned to fit an awkward angle in my clients bedroom, the aim was also to loose a larger furniture piece from the room. The steel work has been finished with a clear lacquer which gives it a beautiful high sheen.
The clients are extremely happy with their bespoke unit, upon delivery it enabled them to move two very large furniture pieces out of the room giving them a lot more usable space. We are delighted with the results of this unit, angled pieces are a great idea for awkward spaces, we thoroughly enjoyed working on this project.
“the client had an awkward corner needed a TV unit and more storage, this was perfect”
RECLAIMED OAK TABLE & CHAIRS
This was a project completed in September 2019, I really enjoyed working on this commission and the client wanted several bespoke pieces made. The steel work is finished with a clear powder coating, adding a beautiful polished effect. The top consists of hand scorched Oak and reclaimed Hardwood, the two together really compliment each other.
The client was very happy with all of her finished bespoke pieces of furniture, we also made the TV stand shown below, plus two side tables. This was another thoroughly enjoyable project to work on.
RECLAIMED OAK TV CABINET
This TV Cabinet was made for the client who purchased the table and chairs above, she also had two side tables made. It was all commissioned to match, making this a really enjoyable project and interesting to see several pieces made to co-ordinate one room. The steel work on the cabinet is again finished with the clear lacquered coating, it creates a really nice colour tone. The wood work is reclaimed hand scorched Oak and hardwood, the hand scorching is really great for enhancing the grain of the wood.
The picture above was taken in the clients home after delivery, she was delighted with the finished. I again enjoyed working on all of the pieces for this room as always another great project to do.
