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…

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.

Huge Bespoke Handmade Marquetry Burr Walnut Extending Dining Table 18 Chairs

Huge Bespoke Handmade Marquetry Burr Walnut Extending Dining Table 18 Chairs

This is a bespoke handmade large dining table in the style of a Victorian dining table along with a matching set of 18 bespoke marquetry chairs. The table and chairs are crafted in burr walnut and feature an abundance of delightful 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 Chairs This large marquetry dining table is supplied with matching set of eighteen chairs which complement it perfectly and comprise sixteen side chairs along with a pair of armchairs. These chairs are made of solid walnut and also feature burr walnut and marquetry decoration which matches the table perfectly. As is the case with the table, this decoration can also be personalised at extra cost. Another interesting feature of these chairs is that the drop in seats can be easily removed to reveal the cooler cane seats below which can be used in warmer weather. This large dining table & chair set would also be ideal for use in a conference room, boardroom or restaurant but whatever function you may have in mind, it will make a strong impression on your visitors and guests. Condition As a new bespoke handmade large dining table, this item is in pristine condition. The same is true of the eighteen marquetry chairs that make up the set.

Superb Bespoke Burr Walnut Marquetry 3 Door Sideboard

Superb Bespoke Burr Walnut Marquetry 3 Door Sideboard

This is a superb large bespoke breakfront sideboard in Victorian style with room for all your plates, china, glassware and cutlery. It features three doors and three capacious drawers. It has been crafted from burr walnut and features exquisite hand cut floral marquetry decoration, and the interior has been beautifully lined with fabric. The sideboard has been French polished by hand and is ready to add a touch of class to a special place in your home.   Condition: This is a new bespoke handmade sideboard.   The making of a marquetry masterpiece The making of a bespoke marquetry table involves many phases - carried out with the highest level of attention to detail - by third generation master craftsmen in our workshop in Italy. First the design of the marquetry is drawn on paper. The paper is then glued on to a sheet of plywood and the veneers are attached to the underside with pins. There can be a maximum of 16 sheets of veneer.  In this case, there are 8 for the burr walnut and 8 for the marquetry. With a fret cutter, using a very fine blade, the marquetry is cut out, using the burr walnut and various coloured veneers to compose the flowers. Today we use an electric fret cutter, although in the 18th and 19th centuries the cutters were operated by treadles. All of the cut out pieces of veneer are then placed on a large tray. They are then singed by being placed in hot sand in a red hot crucible. This singed effect gives different shades to the various veneers, depending on how deep and how long they are left in the hot sand. The various items of veneer are then inserted into the burr walnut one by one. After they are inserted, tape is placed over them to keep them in place. They are then turned over and a sheet of glued paper is placed over them all, after which the tape can be removed. The prepared solid mahogany table is then veneered with mahogany - twice on the under side, horizontally and vertically, and then once on the top side. The prepared marquetry and burr walnut sheet is then placed on top and the whole table top is placed into a hot press, which glues the sheet to the top. The backing paper can then be sanded off. The table top is then veneered 4 times to prevent the top from bowing or warping. Once the assembly is complete, the table is French polished by hand using natural products, resulting in a stunning bespoke masterpiece of marquetry.

Bespoke English Leather Chesterfield Sofa Bed BBA

Bespoke English Leather Chesterfield Sofa Bed BBA

This is an absolutely stunning bespoke leather 'Chesterfield Sofa Bed' in a beautiful colour that we call browny burnt amber and hand-made in London, England with materials of the finest quality. It features sumptuous button back leather that is upholstered in top quality Scottish cow hide which has been hand dyed and antiqued. Because it is hand dyed we can finish the leather to any colour requested, and the beautiful antique patina is achieved by the special walnut based stains that we use in the process.The hand-dyed russet hide bears all the hallmarks of natural leather including scars, stretch marks, grain and texture variation. The studding is achieved with close individual studs not by using strips, each nail is individually hammered in by hand, and the frames are made from solid beech, as we only use hardwoods. 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 effect can be very pleasing although bear in mind that hand-dyed leather can fade in direct sunlight. Handmade English furniture of this quality can last for generations if well-cared for. It is fitted with a pull out double bed and mattress. Condition: In excellent condition, please see photos for confirmation.

Bespoke 10 ft Burr Walnut Regency Style Twin Pillar Dining Table & 10 Chairs

Bespoke 10 ft Burr Walnut Regency Style Twin Pillar Dining Table & 10 Chairs

Here we have a fine looking 303cm (10 ft) Handmade Regency Style Twin Pillar Dining Table in burr walnut together with the matching set of 10 dining chairs. This dining table & chairs set is a bespoke contemporary Regency style dining set. It comprises a substantial and very attractive burr walnut twin pillar dining table capable of comfortably seating up to 10 people. As this striking Regency dining table is made from one of the most naturally beautiful timbers, burr walnut, it would be unusual for it not to feature a highly attractive and beautifully grained top table surface. Here, it does not disappoint - this fine Regency style dining table has a surface that you just want to gaze at and lose yourself in its intricacy and beauty. The table top also features a very attractive crossbanded satinwood border. Adjustable size to suit the occasion This is a table that can serve many purposes due to its variable size. From an intimate dinner for a few friends up to a comfortable and prestigious meeting table for up to a dozen people in your office, boardroom or conference room. This versatility is achieved by way of a couple of expansion panels - finished in exactly the same way and to the same standard as the tabletop itself - which can be added or removed as the occasion requires. When both of the panels are installed the table reaches its full splendour measuring some 303cm in length, (a shade below 10ft at 9ft 11 inches). The depth of the table is 117cm (3ft 10 inches) and it is 76cm (2ft 6 inches) high. A table as substantial as this needs equally substantial support and this is provided by the twin sturdy Regency triple leg splay bases. These terminate with elegant brass lion’s paw style castors which look great and make it easy to move the table around if necessary. Matching dining chairs The chairs are made using solid walnut highlighted with elegant burr walnut and intricate marquetry decoration. These Regency dining chairs have convenient drop-in seats which can be removed as required to reveal the very attractive weaved cane seats beneath. This gives you an alternative, somewhat cooler, seating configuration for the summer months or in warmer climates. This set of dining chairs comprises ten side chairs plus a couple of armchairs for the head(s) of table. The dining chairs measure some 93cm, (3ft 1 inch), high by 48cm, (1ft 7 inch) wide and 46cm, (1ft 6 inches), deep. The two armchairs are 95cm high x 56cm wide and 53cm deep - 3 ft 1 inch x 1 ft 10 inches x 1 ft 9 inches if you prefer. The chairs and the table are both worthy of admiration in their own right but when placed together everything shifts up a gear - this is a very special dining table and chair set and is well worth a closer look. See for yourself With that in mind may we suggest that you visit our north London showroom and warehouse where you can view this Regency Style Dining table and chair set as well as many other dining tables and chairs that we have in stock. The showroom is open every Monday to Friday from 10am until 5pm and on occasional Saturdays - call first to check - We are closed on Sundays.

Bespoke Flame Mahogany Crossbanded 10ft Regency Style Twin Pillar Dining Table

Bespoke Flame Mahogany Crossbanded 10ft Regency Style Twin Pillar Dining Table

This beautiful large mahogany dining table is in a twin-pillar Regency style with a flame mahogany finish. With its mirror-like finish, this is simply one of the most attractive and memorable dining tables you will ever see. This large mahogany dining table can seat twelve people in comfort and features a mesmerising flame mahogany top with a crossbanded satinwood border. It has twin Regency triple leg splay bases that terminate in elegant brass cap castors. The table also has two leaves which can be added or removed as required to suit the occasion. The renowned 18th century furniture designer Thomas Sheraton once characterised mahogany as "best suited to furniture where strength is demanded as well as a wood that works up easily, has a beautiful figure and polishes so well that it is an ornament to any room in which it may be placed." A man of his word, Sheraton worked extensively in mahogany. The qualities that impressed Sheraton are particularly evident in a distinctive pattern of wood called flame mahogany. The flame figure in the wood is revealed by slicing through the face of the branch at the point where it joins another element of the tree. This large mahogany dining table provides a stunning example of this technique. There is no mistaking the fine craftsmanship of this quite breathtaking large mahogany dining table, which is certain to become a treasured addition to your furniture collection and a talking point for you and your dinner guests. The set of chairs shown in the photographs are not included in the price but are available if required.

Bespoke English Hand Made Leather Directors Desk Chair Burgundy

Bespoke English Hand Made Leather Directors Desk Chair Burgundy

An absolutely stunning bespoke new leather 'Director's chair' in a beautiful burgundy colour, hand-made in England with materials of the finest quality. Height is adjustable with swivel/tilt mechanism. ‘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.

As such it is in perfect and pristine condition. 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. You can also read about this below where we explain the process. We are very lucky to have third-generation master craftspeople working in our Italian workshop where this wonderful large dining table was made. It has been made with the greatest care and attention to detail. As you can imagine, making such fine large dining tables is a complex process involving lots of phases requiring a great deal of skill and craftsmanship. The first step is to work out the design for the marquetry and draw this onto paper. This is then glued onto a sheet of plywood with the veneers being pinned on the underside. We can only work with sixteen sheets of veneers and for this large dining table we used eight veneer sheets for the burr walnut and eight for the marquetry. Using a fret cutter with a very fine blade, we cut out the marquetry shapes making sure we use appropriately coloured veneers to compose the foliage and flowers. The fret cutter is now powered by electricity, but in the old days the cutting blades would have been powered by treadles. We then place the veneer pieces on a large tray and taking each piece individually, we singe it in hot sand heated in a red hot crucible. This enables us to achieve a different shade for each piece of veneer depending on how deep and how long we leave it in the sand. The veneer pieces are then hand-inserted piece-by-piece into the burr walnut. These are then taped in place and when the design is finished it is turned over and a piece of glued paper is attached to the back to hold the whole piece together. The tape on the front is then removed. In the meantime, the solid mahogany table is veneered with mahogany, once on the top side, and twice on the underside (horizontally and vertically). The burr walnut and marquetry veneer sheet is put on the mahogany table top and the whole piece of the large dining table top is put into a hot press which fixes the marquetry and burr walnut veneer to the tabletop surface. This surface is then veneered four time to prevent it from warping or bowing. Once everything is assembled, the large dining table is expertly French polished by hand resulting in a truly spectacular bespoke large dining table featuring a masterpiece of marquetry. About Burr Walnut Virtually all walnut wood displays a unique swirling figure when cut and polished, particularly when the wood is taken from where the tree meets the roots. True burr however can only be taken from a rare growth pattern in a walnut tree where tiny branches, sometimes numbering hundreds, have started to grow. Burr walnut is particularly prized by fine furniture makers because it produces some of the most wonderfully delicate and complex wood figuring to be found in any sort of wood. Because of this, we have chosen to use burr walnut in our large dining table. Marquetry The technique of using inlays to create designs has been used both in marble and wood since the early 16th century. The centre for marble working became Florence where extremely ornate stone work was undertaken using inlays of semi precious stones, jaspers and different coloured marbles. Using inlaid wood veneers of different hues was pioneered in Flanders and in particular Antwerp where fine cabinet-makers developed the techniques needed to produce marquetry. The craft then passed into France and was used extensively by the luxury furniture makers of the time particularly for items for Louis XIV’s royal palaces including Versailles. Manufacturers such as Gobelins took the art to a new height creating items of unprecedented luxury and splendour for the royal court. Early marquetry masters included Pierre Golle, a master craftsman from Flanders and his son-in-law Andre-Charles Boulle. They founded a dynasty of Parisian cabinet-makers became famous for marquetry that used brass and pewter in intricate foliage designs and who supplied the royal household. Marquetry continues to flourish using modern designs and techniques. However, the skills required to produce marquetry designs from earlier centuries are rare.We consider ourselves very lucky to have third generation skilled marquetry craftsmen and women in our Italian workshop enabling us to create this exquisite marquetry large dining table for you. Winding Mechanism for extending tables Samuel Hawkins patented a screw expander mechanism in 1861. His business was bought by Joseph Fitter in 1864, who used the screw expander as the basis for winding mechanisms for extending tables. He also used it for other things such as piano stools. French Polish French polish is a process rather than just a type of polish made from alcohol and shellac. The painstaking process of polishing and repolishing results in an exceptionally high gloss on the wood surface. The technique became prominent in the 18th century and has been used for the finest luxury furniture items ever since. French polished surfaces are soft and stain easily (e.g. with a spill of water or a hot coffee cup) but are also more easily patch repaired than other surfaces such as lacquers or veneers, because due to the softeness, the area can be blended into the surrounding finish.

The sideboard has been French polished by hand and is ready to add a touch of class to a special place in your home.   Condition: This is a new bespoke handmade sideboard.   The making of a marquetry masterpiece The making of a bespoke marquetry dining table involves many phases - carried out with the highest level of attention to detail - by third generation master craftsmen in our workshop in Italy. First the design of the marquetry is drawn on paper. The paper is then glued on to a sheet of plywood and the veneers are attached to the underside with pins. There can be a maximum of 16 sheets of veneer.  In this case, there are 8 for the burr walnut and 8 for the marquetry. With a fret cutter, using a very fine blade, the marquetry is cut out, using the burr walnut and various coloured veneers to compose the flowers. Today we use an electric fret cutter, although in the 18th and 19th centuries the cutters were operated by treadles. All of the cut out pieces of veneer are then placed on a large tray. They are then singed by being placed in hot sand in a red hot crucible. This singed effect gives different shades to the various veneers, depending on how deep and how long they are left in the hot sand. The various items of veneer are then inserted into the burr walnut one by one. After they are inserted, tape is placed over them to keep them in place. They are then turned over and a sheet of glued paper is placed over them all, after which the tape can be removed. The prepared solid mahogany table is then veneered with mahogany - twice on the under side, horizontally and vertically, and then once on the top side. The prepared marquetry and burr walnut sheet is then placed on top and the whole table top is placed into a hot press, which glues the sheet to the top. The backing paper can then be sanded off. The table top is then veneered 4 times to prevent the top from bowing or warping. Once the assembly is complete, the table is French polished by hand using natural products, resulting in a stunning bespoke masterpiece of marquetry.

Bespoke English Hand Made Leather Directors Desk Chair

Bespoke English Hand Made Leather Directors Desk Chair

An absolutely stunning bespoke new leather 'Director's chair' in a beautiful antique burnt orange colour, hand-made in England with materials of the finest quality. Height is adjustable with swivel/tilt mechanism. ‘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 This large dining table is newly made and is therefore in pristine condition. The Making of this Marquetry Masterpiece We have made a video to show you how this spectacular large dining table was made. Please take a few moments to watch it. You can also read about the process of making this large dining table below. In our Italian workshop we are very lucky to have third-generation master craftspeople where this lovely large dining table was handcrafted to a bespoke design. As you can see from the photos and video it has been made with the greatest attention to detail, right down to individually hand colouring each small piece of marquetry veneer. As you can imagine, making such a fine large dining table is a process that requires a lot of phases and dedication from our master craftspeople. The whole process for making this large dining table starts with developing the marquetry design that is in perfect keeping with the Victorian era. This design is then pasted onto a sheet of plywood and the veneers are then pinned to the underside. Only sixteen sheets of veneer can be worked with and for this large dining table we used eight sheets for the marquetry and eight for the burr walnut. We use a fret cutter with a very fine blade and cut out the marquetry shapes, ensuring that we use appropriately coloured woods for the veneers to make the urns, ribbons, flowers and foliage In the 18th and 19th century this type of work would have been done with cutters that were powered by treadles, these days we have the advantage of electric cutters, although it still takes a great deal of skill to get this intricate piece of work right. Each piece of veneer is put on a large tray and these are then individually selected and singed in hot sand which is heated in a red hot crucible. Each piece is carefully placed and the shade of the wood changes according to how deep and how long it is left in the sand. This is highly skilled artistic work ensuring that each element of the marquetry design is toasted to just the right colour. Like a very elaborate jigsaw puzzle, each piece is then hand inserted into the burr walnut and taped in place. When the whole design is finished it is turned over and a piece of glued paper is placed on the back to hold it all in place. The tape on the front can now be removed. The solid mahogany table is prepared by being veneered with the top being veneered once on the top side and twice on the underside - both vertically and horizontally. The marquetry and burr walnut sheet is then attached to the table top using a hot press which fixes it in place. The whole top is then veneered an additional four times to prevent bowing or warping. Once everything is ready, the whole table is French polished by hand ensuring that all the glorious colours of the various wood grains are brought out to perfection. This results in a truly spectacular large dining table. About Burr Walnut Burr walnut is a wonderfully figured wood, particularly when the wood it cut and polished from the area of the tree where the trunk connects with the roots. True burr walnut comes from a tree where a rare growth of hundreds of tiny branches has started. Burr walnut is highly prized by fine furniture makers because of the highly decorative nature of the wood figure which adds elegance and style to their pieces. This is the reason we have decided to use burr walnut veneers for our bespoke large dining tables. Marquetry Marquetry is the technique of creating designs and patterns by inlaying different materials into a piece of stone or wood. It was developed in the early 16th century in Florence, where stone masons inlaid different types of marble, precious stones and jaspars to create intricate patterns in their stonework, particularly in churches. A similar expertise arose in Flanders for wood marquetry, and this region produced master craftsmen in the art. The seventeenth century saw the rise of the craft in France, when the era of conspicuous consumption of the French monarchy gave marquetry a boost as highly ornate designs created extremely luxurious looking furniture which was also prized for the skill needed to produce it. Louis XIV commissioned a large amount of marquetry furniture and fittings for his royal palaces and residences and the French aristocracy followed suit. Early marquetry masters included the Flemish craftsman Pierre Golle. He and his son-in-law, Andre-Charles Boulle founded a dynasty of cabinet makers in Paris who became famous for their marquetry using brass and pewter in intricate foliage designs. They were also suppliers to the royal household and helped to popularise the art. Marquetry continues to flourish today and uses modern techniques and designs. However, we consider ourselves very lucky to have third generation skilled marquetry craftsmen and women in our Italian workshop capable of producing marquetry that matches any of that produced in bygone eras. This enables us to create this exquisite marquetry large dining table for you. Winding Mechanism for extending tables Joseph Fitter became the pioneer developer of the screw mechanism that enables a table winding mechanism to work having bought the patent and business from Samuel Hawkins in 1864. Fitter adapted the screw expander for tables and also used it for such things as piano stools. French Polish French polish is made from alcohol and shellac, but it is more of a process than just the application of a type of polish. French polishing requires a lot of repetitive work of buffing and polishing that results in a very high gloss on the wood surface. It also is probably the best way to bring out the fine detail of wood figuring and as such has been used for luxury furniture items since the 18th century when it became prominent. Surfaces that are French polished are soft and can stain easily, but can be more easily repaired than varnished or lacquer surfaces as patch fixes can be blended easily into the surrounding finish.

Bespoke English Hand Made Leather Captains Desk Chair Bruciaton

This is an absolutely superb bespoke new leather 'Captains chair' in a beautiful antique Bruciaton colour, hand-made in England with materials of the finest quality. Height is adjustable with swivel/tilt mechanism. ‘Old English’ is an aniline-finished leather that is tanned to ensure a pleasing distressed or ‘aged’ finish from new.

Bespoke Handmade 12ft Victorian Style Burr Walnut Marquetry Dining Table

Bespoke Handmade 12ft Victorian Style Burr Walnut Marquetry Dining Table

This bespoke handmade large dining table measures 360 cm (approximately 12 feet) when fully extended. Crafted in the Victorian style, it features superb marquetry and comfortably seats twelve people. This large dining table is a wonderful piece of elegant furniture which would work equally well as a conference table or as a bespoke table for a venue such as a restaurant or hotel. Crafted in burr walnut, a beautifully figured wood, this large dining table also features wonderful inlaid marquetry designs of swags, urns and ribbons all hand-made and inset by hand. Made from wood veneers of various shades, this large dining table has been expertly French polished by hand using natural materials to bring out the gorgeous wood grains and show off the marquetry to the very best effect. Featuring a special winding mechanism, there are three leaves of 60 cm (2 feet) each, which can be added or removed as needed to suit any occasion. This lovely large dining table has four wonderfully carved legs that also feature marquetry and that terminate in brass cap castors. The matching chairs shown in the photographs are also available as a separate purchase. Condition This large dining table is brand new, so is in pristine condition. The Making of this Marquetry Masterpiece Please take a few moments to view the video we have made about how this large dining table was made. You can also learn about the process used to make this large dining table below. We consider ourselves very lucky to have third-generation master craftsmen and women in our workshops based in Italy who are highly skilled in crafting handmade tables with inlaid marquetry. The photos and video demonstrates the amount of skill that has gone into making this large dining table. Making such a fine large dining table requires a number of phases each of which requires a meticulous attention to detail to ensure the end product is truly exquisite. The starting point is designing the marquetry patterns and choosing the particular veneers needed to complement the overall design. In the case of this large dining table, we chose marquetry designs and veneers that were in keeping with the styling of the Victorian era. The design is drawn on paper which is then pasted onto plywood and the specially chosen veneers are pinned on the underside of the plywood. The marquetry shapes are then cut out using a fret saw with a very fine blade, a process that requires a keen eye and steady hand. Each piece of veneer is then laid out on a large tray and then singed in hot sand heated in a red hot cruicible. The shade of each piece of veneer is determined by the depth and length of time it is left in the hot sand. This is painstaking work as each small veneer element is selected individually and toasted in the sand to just the right colour for the design. Each marquetry piece is then hand-fitted into the burr walnut background and taped in place. Once the whole design is completed, it is turned over and a piece of glued paper is placed on the back holding all the individual items in place. At this stage the tape can then be removed. The solid mahogany large dining table with its leaves is prepared by having its table top veneered both on top and underneath. The marquetry and burr walnut sheet is then carefully placed on the tabletop and hot pressed to fix it in place. The whole table top is veneered an additional four times to ensure there is no warping or bowing of the find marquetry and burr walnut surface. Once completed, the whole table is French polished by hand to ensure that all the fabulous colours of the marquetry and wood grains is highlighted to perfection resulting in an extraordinary large dining table. Will it fit? This is a very large dining table so be careful to measure the space where you would like it to go, including the door to the room where you would like it placed. Fully extended using 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 it is 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 state, this is a substantial 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. Marquetry Marquetry is a craft that developed in the early 16th century where different materials were inlaid into stone or wood to create patterns and pictures. Inlaying different types of stones into marble started in Florence with the technique being copied for wood in Flanders and particularly Antwerp. The craft passed into France during the opulent reign of Louis XIV and his successors in the 17th century, where the beauty and elegance of furniture with marquetry was used to furnish royal palaces and other aristocratic residences. Marquetry continues to flourish today using modern techniques and designs. However, we pride ourselves in producing large dining tables with marquetry that uses the hand making techniques of the master craftsmen of earlier centuries. This has enabled us to create this exquisite marquetry large dining table in a way that is authentically in keeping with its Victorian styling. French Polish French polishing is much a technique as a particular type of polish. The actual French polish is made from alcohol and shellac, but also requires a process of buffing and polishing that is arduous and takes a long time, with various steps needed to produce the very high gloss finish that is unsurpassed by any other method of finishing fine furniture.

Being smaller, the round dining table enables you to see the hand cut marquetry close up, and the full marquetry design can be seen in all its splendour. The round dining table version particularly shows how intricate the marquetry work is and what a high level of skill and attention to detail is needed to produce such a magnificent piece. The table securely stands on six legs, each of which is elegantly carved featuring additional marquetry and terminating in a brass castor. Matching chairs shown as seen in the photos can also be purchased as a separate item. Condition This is a bespoke piece that has been newly made, so is in pristine condition. The Making of this Marquetry Masterpiece We have produced a short video to explain how this wonderful large dining table was made. You can also find out about the process used to make this large dining table in the paragraphs below. Our main workshop is in Italy and is the home to third-generation master craftsmen and women who are highly skilled in constructing handmade large dining tables and crafting hand cut marquetry for them. This requires a high level of consistency in the execution of such an intricate designs across the large surface area. You will see the wonderful consistency from looking at the photographs. Assembling such a beautiful large dining table requires a number of phases all of which require a high amount of skill and attention to detail. The first step is to create and draw the marquetry designs on paper in keeping with the styling and design ethic of the Victorian period. These designs are then glued onto a sheet of plywood and the veneers that are to be used for the burr walnut and the marquetry pieces are pinned underneath the plywood. The detailed marquetry shapes are then cut out using a fret saw with a very fine blade, a process that requires a keen eye and the steadiness of a surgeon’s hand. The assembly begins and each piece of veneer is singly selected and singed in hot sand which is continuously heated in a red hot crucible. The point of this is to colour the veneers and the shades vary according to the depth and length of time the piece is left in the hot sand. Again, ensuring that there is a consistency of colour and tone across the whole marquetry design requires a high level of skill. Each piece is hand-fitted with the burr walnut to produce the overall design taped into place. Once the whole piece is completed glued paper is stuck to the back to hold the whole assembly in place. Once this is done the tape on the front can be removed and the piece of marquetry veneer begins to take shape. The solid mahogany large dining table is also built and the tabletop and its underneath is prepared with mahogany veneer. The burr walnut and marquetry sheet is then carefully aligned to the tabletop and placed in a hot press which fixes it in place. The tabletop is then veneered a further four times to prevent buckling and warping of the tabletop marquetry. Once completed, the whole table is expertly French polished by hand to provide the highest quality finish, bringing out all the tones and shades of the marquetry and wood grains. This results in an exquisite finished large dining table. About Burr Walnut The wonderful swirling figure found in burr walnut has made it a wood of choice for fine furniture and cabinet-makers across the centuries. The swirling figure is created by cutting and polishing the wood from areas of the tree where is meets other elements e.g. where the trunk meets the roots. Marquetry Marquetry is the art of inlaying materials into either wood or stone to create patterns and pictures. The art developed in the early 16th century in Florence, where stonemasons started inlaying precious stones, jaspers and multi-coloured marble into marble slabs which were used in fine buildings, particularly churches and cathedrals. The technique was copied for wood, with materials such as pewter, brass and other woods being used. Antwerp and the whole Flanders region became renown for this type of wood marquetry during the 16th century. Marquetry became the watchword of luxury during the 17th century in France when Flemish master cabinet-makers migrated to Paris and the demand for the sumptuous and luxurious rose to prominence under the rule of Louis XIV. Many fine pieces of marquetry furniture were commissioned for Versailles and other royal residences and marquetry items became extremely popular denoting wealth and status. French Polish French polishing is a technique that uses alcohol and shellac polish to produce incredibly high gloss on wood surfaces. It is an arduous process requiring a lot of work, but the results are universally acknowledged as superb for enhancing wood grains. As such the technique is particularly suited for bringing out the detail, colour and refinement of marquetry.

Please note that the price quoted is for the standard table as photographed here - there will be an additional charge for personalisation - please contact us to discuss your requirements. Condition This large oval dining table is in pristine condition being brand new. The Making of this Marquetry Masterpiece Marquetry is a highly skilled art and we have made a video to show you just how this lovely large oval dining table was made in our Italian workshops by third generation master craftsmen and women. Please take a few moments to watch this video in order to fully appreciate what a fine piece of furniture this is. Making this large oval dining table started with designing and drawing the marquetry patterns onto paper. The paper was glued onto a sheet of plywood with the carefully chosen veneers pinned to the underside. The marquetry shapes of urns, ribbons, flowers and foliage were then cut out using a very fine blade fret cutter, a process that requires a keen eye and the steady hand of a surgeon! Each small piece of marquetry veneer was then placed on a large tray and then each individual item was selected and singed by hand in hot sand heated in a red hot crucible. The colour and tone of the piece of veneer changes depending on the depth and time the piece is left in the sand. The marquetry pattern was then painstakingly pieced together like a jigsaw puzzle, with each piece being hand inserted into the cut burr walnut and taped in place. When the whole design was finished it was turned over and a piece of glued paper was placed on the back to hold it all in place. The tape on the front was then removed. The solid mahogany table was also prepared by veneering the tabletop both underneath and on top. The marquetry and burr walnut sheet was then attached to the table top using a hot press which fixed the prepared sheet of burr walnut and marquetry in place. The whole top was then veneered an additional four times to prevent bowing or warping. Once everything was complete, the whole table was French polished by hand ensuring that all the glorious colours of the various wood grains were highlighted to perfection. As you can see from the photographs, the result speaks for itself - a magnificent large oval dining table. About Burr Walnut Burr walnut is a very refined wood with a wonderful swirling figure that comes from cutting from a part of the tree where it meets other elements e.g. where the trunk meets the roots. It has been highly prized throughout the centuries by master cabinet-makers because of the colour and decorative nature of this figure. True burr walnut comes from a rare growth that sometimes happens on walnut trees where literally hundreds of tiny branches start growing, but the swirling figure can be found in most walnut trees if cut in the correct way. It is due to this luxurious grain that we chose to use this wood as a veneer for our lovely large oval dining table. Marquetry Marquetry has been practiced since the early 16th century in both Florence and Antwerp with the former specialising in doing inlaid stone work, whilst the latter became famous for producing wood marquetry. It’s popularity exploded in France during the 17th century when it was considered luxurious enough to be used for furniture destined for Versailles and other royal residences with Louis XIV commissioning very many fine pieces which can still be seen today in museums and palaces. Marquetry continues to flourish even today with modern techniques and designs being employed. However, we consider ourselves very lucky to have third generation skilled marquetry craftspeople in our workshops in Italy capable of producing marquetry that matches any of that that was produced in previous centuries. This has enabled us to bring this exquisite marquetry large oval dining table to you. French Polish French polishing is renowned for bringing out the full grain and colour of fine woods and veneers. Because of this we have chosen to use it on this delightful large oval dining table and it certainly does justice to the fine marquetry work. French polish is made from shellac and alcohol and requires a lot of hard work to buff and polish repeatedly until the surface is brought to the highest gloss possible. This type of polishing has been used for luxury items since the 18th century when it became the preferred method of finishing the work of master cabinet-makers.
