When you are asked to assist with the interior design of an historic house you jump at the opportunity. Barrels Hall dates back to 1405, and has seen many changes over the years not least the restoration of the property in 2006 following a serious earlier fire.
In 2012 Sophie Hunt a leading Midlands Interior Designer was appointed to oversee a complete renovation and asked us to recommend / provide two bespoke pieces of furniture. The first was to form the centre piece of the new dining room, a beautiful glass table that would comfortably seat ten people. We provided our Sahara table which has a unique dual curved glass base and a 2.8mts x 1.1mt toughened glass top. Manufactured from 15mm thick glass the table sparkles and reflects the beautiful glass chandelier above.
There is no finer example of combining contemporary design in historic surroundings. The second request was to create a unique writing desk for the client’s private study. The remit was to include storage so we set about combining various materials to reflect the clients wishes. A pedestal unit was manufactured from solid walnut and incorporated three drawers each faced with Mica Glass – a glass which has “chippings” of reflective metal bonded onto the back.
The top and leg were manufactured from 12mm toughened glass bonded together to float above the floor supported ta one end by the pedestal. Once again the outcome was truly stunning with eye being drawn immediately to the desk as you enter the room.
Another triumph for Glassdomain.
