Artichoke is a team of master designers and craftsmen with experience in the creation of bespoke library furniture. We often work with discerning clients in luxury country homes, designing unique libraries that feature exceptional period details. Specialising in authentically detailed, elegant and functional pieces, the team is always happy to discuss potential projects to help you understand exactly what Artichoke can achieve for you.

Bespoke library furniture makers
Our team brings together skilled designers and craftsmen. We have the expertise and knowledge to take a project from beginning to end – whether we are tasked with the creation of a new beautiful library or a complete re-design of your property.
One of our favourite library projects was completed for a home in Haslemere, Surrey. Tasked with constructing library cabinets to complement a striking Art Deco fireplace, we created three identical pieces in a stunning mix of cross-banded macassar ebony and herringbone-laid ripple sycamore. This was completed with nickel-finished Nanz ironmongery. We also constructed matching sliding doors to finalise the room.
How we work
Artichoke takes a highly personal approach to each project – nothing is created without a thorough consultation with our client. This means that each individual piece of furniture is crafted to your exact requirements by our artisan team of carpenters and joinery experts.
We make every item in our own purpose-built workshops in Somerset. Opened in 2015, our workshop space has been specifically designed to provide the ideal environment for creating stunning furniture. As our workshops are temperature and humidity controlled, we can ensure minimal movement from the hardwoods, allowing us to construct a library that fits perfectly into your home.
