Eclecticism and the Chesterfield

Eclecticism is a bold approach to interior design and when done well and with the right pieces, looks absolutely stunning. Essentially eclecticism is to merge styles from different time periods into one project to create a stunning and varying room.   This can be done by mixing and matching colours textures and overall styles that compliment each other but are still entirely different in time period and appearance.   The term eclectic was originally coined by Johann Joachim Winckelmann, an art historian during the 18th century to describe the art of Annibale Carracci, who mixed traditional and contemporary styles into his pieces.

When we see beautiful antique pieces over 100 years old which still have years of life to give, we know they have been crafted with love, attention and importantly, crafted to a very high standard.  This is where the concept of the Robinson crafting of pieces come from. We craft all our pieces in a traditional way, which few crafting houses still continue, however we intend to continue this!  Every piece we craft we want to create legacy pieces which one day will be passed down and used for hundreds of years.

The Rarity Of An Original Pair

In the world of furniture pairs are a very common occurrence. However, when it come to antiques, pairs are extremely rare! Antiques crafted over 100 years ago tend to be found alone either due to being only one piece crafted, the pair have been split or one piece has not stood the test of time.

This is why when we craft a matching pair of pieces it is vitally important that they not only match, but both age and survive through time.  Here we have a stunning pair of our...
