I hope you’ve enjoyed working with us over the past year and continue to find our services of interest. Please take a look around our updated website to find out more about our work, products and news.
I would like to take this festive opportunity to showcase some of our highlights from 2017 and to thank you for your valued orders and commissions. We’ve been very fortunate to work on some interesting and challenging projects and, on behalf of our clients, have worked with some of the best practitioners, companies, independent artisans and specialist workshops, all of whom have a shared interest in producing the very best in interior architectural elements.
This past year, we’ve worked on numerous projects in Hampshire, Dorset, Surrey, Sussex and London, with projects further afield in Cheshire and Hertfordshire, receiving commissions from both private clients and industry professionals. This diverse range of work has included the setting out and installation of fabric wall panelling using exquisite hand-embroidered fabrics, Ralph Lauren silk damasks and the hanging of gold-leafed papers from De Gournay. We’ve also designed a Study completely decorated in Christian Lacroix’s distinctive wallpaper and fabric designs and incorporating one of our Pole Fascias covered in his unforgettable fabric design, Malmasion.
Our Curtain Pole Fascias have really taken off this year; we’ve received orders using our high lacquered paint finish in The Little Greene and Zoffany paint ranges, as well orders for fabric wrapped poles, all of which have been teamed with our own range of Turned Ash finials. In particular, our Limed White and Limed Ash finishes are proving very popular when used with bronze or acrylic brackets. This collection, a collaboration between Pan’s Lodge and Master Craftsman Colin Norgate, has been showcased at various exhibitions and was most recently seen at his stand at RHS Wisley and for The Sussex Guild Contemporary Craft show at Parham House and Garden, where we first showed our Turned Sphere Holdback design, a new addition to the collection.
Much earlier in the year, we acquired a very rare edition of the architectural pattern book “Architectural Remains”, by Charles James Richardson, London, 1840. This has inspired our design work for several period projects requiring designs for interior elements: panelled rooms, doors, cabinetry and fire surrounds, and in the New Year we will feature some of this work on our News page as the projects come to fruition.
We are very fortunate to have worked with the majority of our clients for many years, and we continue to design and supply furnished rooms just as we set out to do in the early days of the business. Over time, through training, experience and using new CAD software and hand drawings, our work has evolved and extended, and we now specialise in the design of interior architectural elements, whether a specific, bespoke commission or a project that incorporates a design from our Design Elements Collection: plaster mouldings, window hardware, etc. The majority of our business now serves our clients on a consultation basis in which we provide advice, design and concept drawings for private clients as well as architects, interior designers and building contractors. Over the past year, we have produced concepts and detailed drawings for interior elements for projects in London, the South-East and North of England, as well as Italy, Russia, Saudi Arabia and the USA.
For 2018, we are looking forward to continuing to work with our established clients and to starting on a prospective commission for a private residence in Wyoming, USA. As our client testimonials prove, our business grows by referrals and so, as ever, we look forward to forging new collaborations. We are keen to discover new clients, whether private, professional or industry partners. Please feel free to pass our details on to any of your contacts with a shared interest in the design of fine properties and interiors who may benefit from our individual designs or products.
