About Us  - An Introduction to Artichoke

Artichoke was founded 25 years ago byBH
Bruce Hodgson, the company’s Creative Director.

Artichoke is principally a specialist joinery designer for country houses (and traditional interior joinery for London town houses). We focus exclusively on private homes in the UK and overseas.  Our purpose is to bridge the joinery design gap that exists between our client’s architects (who in the main are not interested in joinery detail), their interior designer (whose understanding of joinery detail places limits on their ability to design it) and joinery companies (who do not offer creative design).

With a preference for designing kitchens, fitted furniture and architectural joinery for country houses, we combine our in-depth understanding of cabinet making, authentic period joinery detail and period architecture to deliver creative excellence with outstanding quality.

We also make everything we design ourselves. This ensures efficiency, quality and a smooth transition between designing and making disciplines, resulting in both greater quality and value for our clients.

All our furniture is made by us in England in our 12,000 sq ft purpose built workshop.

We are passionate about our clients homes. What motivates us every day is the belief that we are designing outstanding spaces for our clients and their families to cook in, entertain in, play in, get dressed in, wash in, relax in and live in. We do what we do, in the way that we do it, because our clients are trusting us with their homes. We take this responsibility very seriously and it shapes the way everyone in the business behaves.
