Artichoke's 3D renders allow us to clearly illustrate form and colour to our client before the designs are signed off.
Our team's progress on the kitchen, starting with the tree!
Beautiful French oak boards have been hand selected for the kitchen. The oak has been sourced from a privately owned timber mill near Dijon.
These boards have a wonderful texture and importantly, a consistent grain pattern. We are making the kitchen from oak and then hand painting it. Oak has a wonderful grain, and hand painting over it with a specialist technique will allow the oak's grain to grin through the paint.

The doors on the island. They have been designed specifically to look as if they have been cut from repurposed panelling. This will help give the island a vintage look.
The dark aged bronze pivot hinges. When fitted, the crosshead screws will be replaced with bronze slothead screws.
Note how the timber grain flows from the top frame into the door frame. It's all about detail!
