Bespoke Furniture

Sometimes it just isn’t possible to find exactly what you need by way of an item of antique furniture. Perhaps you need something a bit larger than usual, or a piece with an unusual design. Maybe you would like a bespoke dining table, conference table or some bespoke chairs with marquetry decoration including your family crest or coat of arms or perhaps the logo for your business or product.

The sky's the limit with bespoke furniture that is made to order from Regent Antiques - our craftsmen can carry out unique marquetry decoration and other bespoke finishes to your own design and use fabrics of your choice for upholstery, where required. If you can envisage it in your mind, then the chances are we'll be able to make it a reality for you.

Bespoke Dining Tables in Traditional Styles with Your Special Unique Styling

Imagine sitting down to a meal with your guests at a table bearing fabulous marquetry decorations including your family crest or coat of arms. Alternatively, it might be a special feature for a hotel lobby or a restaurant private dining area that you are looking for, complete with your logo or motif applied to the table or other item of furniture using traditional marquetry techniques.

Our team regularly take on such bespoke furniture commissions, just let them have an idea of what you are looking for together with any art work or designs that you might have and they will provide you with an estimate of the cost and time required to carry out the work. These bespoke furniture pieces are all handmade using, wherever possible, traditional methods, mostly by hand and making use of the very best veneers and timbers available.

Bespoke Furniture - More Than Just Bespoke Dining Tables

Although bespoke dining tables, especially large dining tables, are a major part of our bespoke furniture business, we also regularly make bespoke dining chairs, bespoke desk chairs, bespoke sideboards and bespoke desks. If you have a design in mind just contact us and discuss the options with our team who can advise on what is possible and provide you with an estimate of the cost.

Marquetry and its use in Bespoke Furniture

Because most of the furniture we offer is made from very fine materials including the very best timber and veneers, it is appropriate that we offer a remarkable standard of bespoke marquetry decoration for your item of furniture. Each small piece of wood needed for your unique bespoke decoration is carefully hand cut from beautiful wood veneers and applied by hand to the surface of the furniture item which is to be decorated.

Applying marquetry to bespoke furniture is a time consuming process that is carried out by craftsmen who are often from the second or third generation of their family to take up such a profession.

You can see our video, ‘The Magic of Marquetry’ here. Take a look and find out just how much love and devotion goes into making every single piece of bespoke furniture to leave our workshops.

Location is not a barrier to owning a fine bespoke dining table or other item of bespoke furniture

Rest assured that, no matter where you live, we can build and deliver your own unique bespoke table, chairs or other bespoke furniture items right to your door. When we provide you with a quotation for the bespoke furniture we will also provide a quotation for packing and shipping your furniture to ensure that it gets to you in pristine condition, ready for you to enjoy.

Our customers living in the mainland UK will benefit from free of charge delivery on all bespoke furniture items, marquetry furniture and indeed any item purchased from Regent Antiques.

Bespoke English Hand Made Leather Captains Desk Chair Burgundy

Bespoke English Hand Made Leather Captains Desk Chair Burgundy

This is an absolutely stunning bespoke new leather 'Captains chair' in a beautiful Old English Burgundy colour, hand-made in England with materials of the finest quality. Old English Burgundy is an aniline-finished leather that is tanned to ensure a pleasing distressed or ‘aged’ finish from new. Extra fat liquors are applied during tanning to give the leather a slightly waxy feel. These leathers are designed to allow the natural marking variations of the leather to show through to the finish coat. Pull-up leathers do not have a consistent colour density across the whole hide and are designed to change colour and sheen when pulled or stretched. They are not as colour fast as pigmented hides and are designed to allow furniture to age and relax through use and over time. Evidence of marks and scarring will be seen through the surface finish. Each hide will be unique, as will be the furniture on which it is used. The studding is achieved with close individual nails or studs -  not by using strips - and each nail is individually hammered in by hand. The seat has individual double cone hand springing, each spring is hand-sewn to the beechwood frame and the filling is canvas, fibre and felt The studding is achieved with close individual nails / studs not by using strips, and each nail is individually hammered in by hand. Made with solid mahogany turned legs the chair is solid mahogany. Handmade English furniture of this quality can last for generations if well-cared for. Available in other colours upon request.

Stunning Bespoke Handmade Burr Walnut Marquetry Dining Table & 8 Chairs

Stunning Bespoke Handmade Burr Walnut Marquetry Dining Table & 8 Chairs

A bespoke, handmade burr walnut & marquetry dining table & chairs set with a large table plus ten matching dining chairs. The marquetry can be personalised to suit your requirements at extra cost. This would enable you to incorporate a company logo or brand motifs or perhaps a family crest or coat of arms into your marquetry dining table, making it truly yours. This striking handmade bespoke oval dining table features an array of intricate hand cut marquetry decoration comprising vases, ribbons, urns and decorative garlands. The main timber used for the construction of the table is French burr walnut, a wood that features such a detailed and beautiful grain. To emphasis that grain, this table has been French polished by hand to a high gloss thereby bringing out the fine grain of the burr walnut as well as the inlaid marquetry decoration. Versatility is assured when you take into account that this table can be extended or retracted as required by adding or removing one or two of the two expansion leaves supplied. This is easily done by using the special winding mechanism which is incorporated into the table. Although primarily described as a dining table this set could be equally at home in a boardroom or conference room. This large and substantial oval dining table needs proper support and to that end it is mounted onto four beautifully carved legs which are terminated with brass cap castors to facilitate ease of movement. The Matching Dining Chairs This fine table is supplied with a total of ten burr walnut and inlaid marquetry chairs which complement the table beautifully. The set comprises a pair of armchairs along with a total of eight side chairs. The chairs are made from solid walnut and also feature marquetry decoration along the same lines as the table. For your seating comfort, the chairs in this set have beautifully upholstered and feature drop in seats which can quickly and easily be removed leaving the cane seats below available to provide a cooler seating option in warmer weather. Make It Personal - Our Bespoke Dining Table Service This is a very fine marquetry dining table as it is but we also offer you the opportunity to acquire one just like it which has been personalised with the same standard of marquetry designs that you yourself specify. This could be a family crest or coat of arms. Alternatively, businesses could incorporate their logos, motifs and product names, brands etc into the design of the marquetry table top.

Seating sixteen people in royal comfort, it is an amazing piece of luxury furniture which will add splendour to any room. Also appropriate for a conference room or any commercial space such as a feature piece in a hotel dining room or lobby, it is sure to be a talking point. Due to its beautifully figured grain, burr walnut has been used for centuries by fine furniture makers. This large dining table has been further embellished with superb inlaid floral marquetry with burr walnut inlaid in pewter and various coloured veneers comprising cherry, pear, amboyna, burr walnut, magnolia, and tulipwood  with inserts of lapis lazuli. To highlight the natural grain of the wood and the excellent artistry of the marquetry, we have French polished this large dining table by hand. The skirt of the table is decorated with ormolu mounts inset with agate. This wonderful large dining table is raised on two burr walnut ebonised and inlaid pedestals that are raised on  hand carved solid mahogany lion's paw feet. The matching set of 16 chairs comprises fourteen side chairs and a pair of armchairs. The chairs are made of solid walnut, have been beautifully French polished and upholstered, and the exquiste marquetry decoration is hand cut to match the table. The drop in seats can be removed in hot weather so that the cane seats below can be utilised. The Making of this Marquetry Masterpiece Please take a few moments to watch our video which explains how this wonderful large dining table was made. We are very lucky to have third-generation master craftspeople working in our Italian workshop where this wonderful large dining table was made.

More About Louis XV Furniture Throughout the reign of Louis XV furniture design evolved taking in various fashions. The preference for smaller items and more comfort came to the fore during the Louis XV period, contrasting with the more bombastic and large scale grandeur of the early styles from the Louis XIV period, which had been heavily influenced by the need to have furniture that match the grandeur of the massive rooms in the Palace of Versailles. Louis XV had many of these rooms divided up and a more intimate styling became fashionable. Many new forms of chairs were developed during the Louis XV period which all had more comfort in mind. These included the chaise longue, the Bergere which had a low seat, an extra cushion and wings which made it easier to take naps in the chair and the Fauteuil de cabinet - a chair designed to with with a desk and provide much more comfort whilst writing. These Louis XV dining chairs with their padded back and seats show this trend for comfort and will add the ‘wow’ factor to any dining table. They are in excellent condition as can be seen from the photographs. Viewing A Set Of Louis XV Dining Chairs In Person We recommend that you try and browse through our objects personally.

Bespoke 14 ft Three Pillar Mahogany Dining Table and 16 Chairs

Here we have a very attractive and imposing Three Pillar Mahogany Dining Table & 14 Chairs, carefully matched to complement each other perfectly.

It would work equally well as an eye catching boardroom table or as a formal table in a hotel or restaurant. To provide the kind of strength and stability that a table top of this size requires, and in keeping with the Regency dining table style, this table top stands on a total of three ‘gun barrel’ triple leg bases which have been fitted with brass toes and castors for ease of movement. This gives the table a distinctive styling adding to its overall grandeur. The amazing craftsmanship that has gone into this elegant table is obvious, even at first glance, with the table surface having been given a crossbanded border which was created using satinwood. This enhances the lovely warm tones and grain of the flame mahogany wood ensuring they are shown off to perfection. Supplied with a set of 14 matching chairs This dining table & chairs set is supplied complete with a set of solid mahogany chairs which feature inlaid crossbanded satinwood decoration to match that of the table.

12ft Bespoke Handmade Burr Walnut Marquetry Dining Table & 12 Chairs

12ft Bespoke Handmade Burr Walnut Marquetry Dining Table & 12 Chairs

This bespoke handmade large dining table measures 360 cm (approximately 12 feet) when fully extended. Crafted in the style of a victorian dining table, it features the most superb marquetry and can comfortably accommodate up to twelve people making it suitable not only for dining but equally for use in a boardroom or conference/meeting room. Crafted in top quality burr walnut, which is known to be a beautifully figured timber very popular with furniture makers across the ages, this large dining table also features a plethora of intricate inlaid marquetry designs depicting swags, urns and ribbons. All of the marquetry is handmade and inset. Made from wood veneers of various shades, this large dining table has been expertly French polished by hand to emphasis out the wood grains and marquetry to best effect. The table features a special winding mechanism which is used to enable the fitting of up to three extension leaves of 60 cm (2 feet) each. These can be added or removed as required to suit the occasion. This lovely large dining table has four wonderfully carved legs that also feature marquetry and that terminate in brass cap castors. A set of 12 matching chairs, as shown in the photographs, is supplied with this table. There are ten dining chairs, each measuring 105 cm high x 48 cm wide x 46 cm deep. The two armchairs each measure 105 high x 56 cm wide and 53 cm deep. The set of twelve burr walnut and inlaid chairs match the table beautifully. They are made from solid walnut with upholstered drop in seat pads which can be removed so that the cane seats below can be used in warmer weather, and for cleaning. Condition This large dining table and the set of chairs is brand new and therefore in pristine condition. The Making of a Marquetry Masterpiece Please take a few moments to view the video we have made about how this large dining table was made by our third generation craftsmen in Italy. We are able to build a similar table for you with your own specification marquetry decoration, at extra cost. Will it fit? This is a very large dining table so be careful to measure the space where you would like it to go. When fully extended using all three of the leaves, this large dining table has a height of 80 cm (2 feet, 7 inches) and a depth of 130 cm (4 feet, 3 inches) and a length of 360 cm (11 feet, 10 inches). When closed (the leaves are not being used) the height and depth are the same, but the length is reduced to 180 cm (5 feet, 11 inches). As you can see, even in its reduced format, this is still a large dining table. About Burr Walnut Burr walnut has been used by furniture makers for centuries due to its wonderful swirling figure which adds true glamour to the pieces it is used for. Most walnut wood displays the swirling figure when it is cut and polished, particularly when it is cut from where the trunk of the tree meets the roots. However, ‘true’ burr walnut comes from a rare growth pattern of a walnut tree where hundreds of tiny branches have started to grow. This formation is unusual and rare, so burr walnut usually refers to the more ordinary swirling figures found in more normal growth. More Information A personal viewing is always recommended for a furniture purchase as significant as this. However, if you can’t make the trip, please feel free to email or call us on the above number if you have any questions or queries. We have experts on hand who are always delighted to help. You can also arrange a viewing of this large dining table and also our other stock of Victorian style marquetry large dining tables.

Bespoke English Handmade Amsterdam Leather Arm Chair bruciato

Bespoke English Handmade Amsterdam Leather Arm Chair bruciato

This is an absolutely stunning new bespoke 'Amsterdam Armchair' in a beautiful bruciato colour, hand-made in England with materials of the finest quality. Old English is an aniline-finished leather that is tanned to ensure a pleasing distressed or ‘aged’ finish from new. Extra fat liquors are applied during tanning to give the leather a slightly waxy feel. These leathers are designed to allow the natural marking variations of the leather to show through to the finish coat.   Pull-up leathers do not have a consistent colour density across the whole hide and are designed to change colour and sheen when pulled or stretched. They are not as colour fast as pigmented hides and are designed to allow furniture to age and relax through use and over time. Evidence of marks and scarring will be seen through the surface finish.   Each hide will be unique, as will be the furniture on which it is used. The studding is achieved with close individual nails or studs -  not by using strips - and each nail is individually hammered in by hand.   Seats have individual double cone hand springing, each spring is hand sewn to the beechwood frame. The filling is canvas, fibre and felt.   The effect can be very pleasing although bear in mind that this hand-dyed leather can fade in direct sunlight. Handmade English furniture of this quality can last for generations if well-cared for. Available in other colours upon request. Bespoke orders and wholesale enquiries welcome. Condition: In excellent condition, please see photos for confirmation.

Bespoke Pair English Handmade Carlton Leather Desk Chairs BBO

Bespoke Pair English Handmade Carlton Leather Desk Chairs BBO

This is an absolutely fantastic bespoke pair of new 'Carlton arm chairs' in a beautiful antique browny burnt orange colour, hand-made in England with materials of the finest quality. ‘Old English’ is an aniline-finished leather that is tanned to ensure a pleasing distressed or ‘aged’ finish from new. Extra fat liquors are applied during tanning to give the leather a slightly waxy feel. These leathers are designed to allow the natural marking variations of the leather to show through to the finish coat. Pull-up leathers do not have a consistent colour density across the whole hide and are designed to change colour and sheen when pulled or stretched. They are not as colour fast as pigmented hides and are designed to allow furniture to age and relax through use and over time. Evidence of marks and scarring will be seen through the surface finish. Each hide will be unique, as will be the furniture on which it is used. The studding is achieved with close individual nails or studs -  not by using strips - and each nail is individually hammered in by hand. The seat has individual double cone hand springing, each spring is hand-sewn to the beechwood frame and the filling is canvas, fibre and felt. Handmade English furniture of this quality can last for generations if well-cared for. Available in other colours upon request. Bespoke orders and wholesale enquiries welcome. Condition: In excellent condition, please see photos for confirmation.

About Flame Mahogany It was during the 18th century that mahogany started to be commercially imported from the Americas and soon became a firm favourite of fine furniture makers due to gorgeous colour and also its strength. In the 18th century, Thomas Sheraton, the renown English furniture designer wrote that mahogany was his wood of choice when strength was needed. He went on to say that having a beautiful figure it could be polished to a high gloss and that any room was bound to ornamented by a piece of mahogany furniture. The specific flam figure that makes flame mahogany is created by cutting through the branch as a point where it joins another element of the tree, e.g. the trunk or another branch.

Huge Bespoke Handmade 17ft Floral Marquetry Burr Walnut Dining Table

Huge Bespoke Handmade 17ft Floral Marquetry Burr Walnut Dining Table

This is a bespoke handmade large dining table in the style of a Victorian dining table. It is crafted in burr walnut and features superb marquetry. Seating eighteen people in regal comfort, it is an extraordinary piece of furniture which will add splendour to any room. Burr walnut has been used for centuries by the fine furniture makers due to its beautiful grain. This large dining table has been further embellished with superb inlaid marquetry decoration featuring urns, ribbons, flowers, vases and birds. The gorgeous hand cut inlaid marquetry decoration is cut from different wood veneers of various colours. To highlight the superb artistry of the marquetry, as well as the natural grain of the wood, this large dining table has been expertly French polished by hand. This exquisite large dining table has four leaves. The leaves can be added or removed to vary the length of the table using a special double winding mechanism. This gives the table wonderful flexibility enabling it to be adjusted to suit the occasion. As a large dining table it needs extra stability so it stands on six finely carved legs which terminate with brass cap castors. The set of chairs shown in the photos are NOT included in the price of the table, but can be ordered separately if required. For your convenience we have paired this table with a choice of suitable matching chairs - please follow this link to see examples. Condition As a new bespoke handmade large dining table, this item is in pristine condition. The Making of this Marquetry Masterpiece Please view our video showing this process. Our bespoke marquetry large dining tables are made in our Italian workshop with the greatest care and attention to detail by our third generation master craftspeople. Making a marquetry large dining table involves many phases and a great deal of skill and craftsmanship as you will discover when reading about the process below. First the design of the marquetry is drawn on paper and then glued onto a sheet of plywood. The veneers are then attached to the underside with pins. The maximum number of sheets of veneer that can be worked with is sixteen, and in the case of this large dining table we used eight for the burr walnut and eight for the marquetry. With a fret cutter and using a very fine blade, the marquetry shapes are cut out, using the burr walnut and various coloured veneers to compose the flowers, urns, birds, ribbons and other marquetry decoration. These days we use an electric fret cutter, although in the 18th and 19th centuries the cutters would have been operated by treadles. The newly cut pieces of veneer are then placed on a large tray and singed by being placed in hot sand heated in a red hot crucible. A different shade is achieved for each veneer piece by varying how deep and how long it is left in the hot sand. The various pieces of veneer are then hand-inserted into the burr walnut, piece by piece. They are taped in place and then when the full pattern is complete, the whole piece is turned over and a large piece of glued paper is placed over the whole design. The tape is then removed. The solid mahogany table is then veneered with mahogany, twice on the underside (horizontally and vertically) and once on the top side. After this, the prepared marquetry and burr walnut sheet is placed on top and the whole table top is put into a hot press, which glues the marquetry and burr walnut sheet to the large dining table top. The backing paper is then sanded off and the table top is veneered four times to prevent the top from bowing or warping. Once the assembly is complete, the table is French polished by hand using all-natural products, resulting in a truly wonderful bespoke masterpiece of marquetry. About Burr Walnut Nearly all walnut wood, when cut and polished displays a swirling figure. However, true burr is much rarer as it it made from unusual growth on the tree where hundreds of tiny branches have started to grow. Burr walnut produces some of the most beautifully complex wood figures that can be found in any type of wood and is prized in fine furniture making for this complexity. We have made great use of this wonderful wood in this bespoke handmade large dining table. Marquetry The technique of using inlaid wood veneers, silver, brass pewter and mother of pearl to create pictures and patterns was developed in the luxury cabinet making workshops of Flanders including Antwerp during the early 16th Century. The craft drew its inspiration from 16th Century Florence where craftsmen inlaid solid marble slabs with designs formed from fitted jaspers, semi-precious stones and other marbles. Marquetry became all the rage in 17th Century France where the craft was imported to create furniture of unprecedented luxury by manufacturers such as Gobelins. Items of great splendour were created for Louis XIV’s various royal residences including Versailles. Early masters of the craft included the Fleming Pierre Golle who, together with his son-in-law Andre-Charles Boulle founded a dynasty of Parisian cabinet-makers who supplied the royal household and became famous for a type of marquetry that used brass and pewter to create intricate foliage designs. Marquetry continues to be used in a range of fine furniture using modern designs and patterns. The skills required to produce marquetry designs, particularly those of earlier centuries are rare. We are very lucky to have the benefit of third generation skilled marquetry craftspeople in our Italian workshop enabling us to bring you this exquisite marquetry large dining table. Winding Mechanism for extending tables The invention of a screw expander mechanism was patented by Samuel Hawkins in 1861 and his business was taken over by Joseph Fitter in 1864. Based in Birmingham, England, Fitter expanded the use of the screw mechanism for extending tables as well as for piano stools and other applications. French Polish French polishing is a process of bringing wood surfaces to an exceptionally high gloss through the application of an alcohol and shellac polish. It requires a lot of patience and hard work, but the resulting finish is regarded as one of the finest available. French polished surfaces are soft and so stain easily (e.g. with a hot coffee cup) but being soft can also be repaired more easily. Stains can be removed and blended back into the French polished surface relatively easily in comparison to other, more modern, wood finishes e.g. varnish.
