Welcome to Artichoke

Designers and makers of fine handmade kitchens and joinery-led interiors

We are experts in design, traditional architectural joinery and cabinet making; in the language of good English houses and in the way we live now.

We know that in town and country, the period English house is one of life’s loveliest prizes. But these houses present a challenge – fitting them for modern life without compromising their historic charm and value.

We will meet this challenge for you through traditional architectural joinery, meticulous detailing and a real understanding of the life of a household.

The result?  Stunning, functional kitchens and fitted joinery which add to the heritage of your house for future generations, while celebrating family life today.

Kitchens and beyond

Often we begin with a bespoke, handmade kitchen, and when clients realise the potential of traditional joinery to make a house more architecturally authentic and more liveable, we extend our reach elsewhere.

Libraries, boot rooms, dressing rooms, bathrooms and drawing rooms all benefit immeasurably from creative space planning, as well as the flexibility, utility and beauty of wood. Explore our work in different rooms.

Period interior experts

We are committed to creating Britain’s future heritage by designing and making rooms that not only allow for elegant, practical family life, but also add to the architectural value of houses for future generations.

Our traditional joinery and handmade kitchen work is led by a thorough understanding of English period architecture, classical internal joinery, and historic interior decoration. Learn more about our work across different periods.
