Amazing layout and vast selection

Our showrooms are arranged between four attractive period properties. Facing the street, there is one Georgian period private residence where we showcase the majority of our Georgian and Regency style mahogany and walnut reproduction furniture. Adjoining this building are two original village shops; one was the baker’s shop and the other the Army & Navy Stores. In these buildings, we have a mix of classical reproduction furniture and traditional English sofas and chairs.

At the back of the showrooms are another three buildings. The first houses antique style office furnishings such as mahogany pedestal desks, bookcases and period style filing cabinets as well as a variety of leather upholstered swivel desk chairs. The second showroom in the gardens was the original town bakery, where the bread was baked to sell in the shop. Visitors can still see the original oven in situ. This building houses our collection of period style oak furniture, where we have a huge variety of stock including oak refectory dining tables, traditional glazed breakfront bookcases, sideboards, dining chairs as well as many pieces of oak occasional furniture displayed alongside period lamps, original hand painted oil paintings and solid mahogany hand carved gilt mirrors. Through the garden again, where we have a display of traditional style carved marble garden features, is another small showroom where we have a display of traditional style mahogany dining furniture.

featured: Chippendale 18th century style fireplace surround and mirror

A truly stunning bespoke 18th century style fireplace surround with completing overmantel mirror in the Chippendale manner.  Inspired by an original design in the “Chippendale Director” a catalogue of more than 250 furniture designs produced by Thomas Chippendale’s workshops, first published in 1754.

Entirely hand carved in laminated, solid mahogany by a dedicated team of five expert craftsman under the guidance of Brights of Nettlebed director, Henry Stamp. After several months of carving and sanding, the piece was brought to the UK in it’s raw state with mirror plate and marble where it was sanded once more and completely gessoed in our gilding workshops. After further sanding of the gesso layer, the bole and off-white paint were laid before the 23¾ carat gold leaf which was burnished and toned (brightened and dulled) in the right areas to create depth and interest to the intricate three dimensional carving. A shaped cream marble back plate with thumbnail edge to the aperture complements the marble at the base.

This is an exclusive hand made item available to view and purchase. Bespoke commissions undertaken.
