The brief for the dining room in this grand country house in Italy required the room to take on the air of an English country house interior. Artichoke was commissioned to design and make a grand entrance to the room. The side and head panels on the deep architectural joinery door reveal match the rhythm of the panels on the doors themselves so that there is a balance when the doors are open or closed. The doors and architectural joinery were French polished.
As part of Artichoke’s design work for the house, we were also commissioned to design and detail the coffered ceiling.
Primary materials: Stained European walnut, shellac and wax.
