'River Glass' Cedar Banquet Table with Dovetail jointed Legs & feature Butterfly key Benches

An exquisite, proportionally correct Cedar of Lebanon wooden banquet table that seats 16 – highly figured timber with exposed natural edges running down the centre of the table, gap bridged with shaped, toughened safety glass.



This piece was inspired by a local tree here in Gloucestershire, which was planted circa 1860 and felled in 2006. As our workshop is located by the mighty River Severn, we shaped the table in line with the flowing contours of the inset river glass. The table & benches are a natural centre piece for any interior and a delight to the touch. This is truly a design from the heart, which we would be happy to adapt for another space.

Solid Oak & MDF Room Divider / Bookshelf / Display Unit 0

Solid Oak & MDF bespoke room divider, bookshelf, display unit, handcrafted from sustainable wood by The Fine Wooden Article Co., Gloucestershire, UK.

Bespoke fitted room divider / bookshelf made from our own sustainably sourced Oak and white melamine MDF.


The design process for this commission was informed by our client's aesthetic preferences and lifestyle, and space considerations. It was important for this highly functional room divider/ bookshelf to be durably made & solid whilst staying in keeping with the rest of the space's interior design and light, airy feel.


As we developed the design, we sought to define the space without impinging on a feeling of spaciousness, to bring shape and circulation flow to an otherwise empty space whilst factoring in the client's storage needs & stylistic preference for an open display of personal effects, books, flower vases & subtle indoor lighting.



Should you be interested in a similar piece, please do not hesitate to get in touch!
