oak joinery, furniture and furnishings for a devonshire manor
Tucked away in a beautiful part of Devon lies this jewel of an English Manor house. Stuart Interiors have a long-standing relationship with this special building and over the years have undertaken numerous commissions from both current and previous owners.
Most rewarding has been the restoration of the magnificent original Elizabethan staircase which was in need of general care and also required the replacement of the impressive carved animal finials which had been unfortunately removed and lost in years past.
Careful research led us to illustrations of what should have adorned the newel posts and our master carvers recreated the beasts on display today.
Commissions have also included the solid oak front door, with inner-framed panelled design; oak tester bed, wardrobes and curtaining for the Master Bedroom and other furniture and furnishings throughout the house.
