Basic Form

Carving

Finishing

Upholstery

       As in most things more properly described as art, the design process is organic in nature and hard to pin down exactly but it does go through different stages, and the choices made in one stage of the design very often impact on the ones made at a different stage.

  Basic Form 

Firstly the basic form for the set is chosen, this is, the set without any carving, finishing or upholstery. This could be one of the existing hundreds of designs that we have used previously, or an adaptation of one of those designs, or indeed a completely new original design. The parts that make up this basic form of the chairs and table are then made and sent for carving.

Carving

This is stage two of the design process and here initially, the choices are made for what parts of the basic form carvings will be applied to, and then which of the thousands of possible carvings will be chosen to adorn and embellish this particular set. Often much debate goes into these decisions, but the vast experience of the head carver and the design team helps greatly so that the right choices are made. After carving the set then goes to finishing.

Finishing

Again, at this stage, there are so very many options to choose from but some designs and basic forms lend themselves well to certain finishes, both in colour and texture so you see again the interdependence of these options. Off to the upholsterers, if that is in the design.
