Every piece is handmade in the workshop with unrivalled artistry and skill; the resulting luxury furniture combines contemporary design with timeless style – from elegant dining room pieces through to bold boardroom furnishings. Here Paul Silk of Steve Bristow Furniture and I discuss the type of furnishings most often requested and where they can be viewed:

NS: ”Paul, two words constantly come up in conversation with interiors clients when discussing furnishings – ‘natural’ and ‘bespoke’; which materials does Steve Bristow typically use to produce the pieces?”

PS: “The company specialises in working with all natural stones such as quartz, granite, marble and stone, then we also work with various metals and finishes e.g brass; the metal can either be an integral part of the product design or used as an accent trim…” 

NS: ”And your clients… are they residential and hospitality interior designers?”

PS: ”Yes we do – for example, we’ve produced furnishings on behalf of clients located in Switzerland and this was particularly challenging as it happened to be during Covid lockdown so we were forced to confine our meetings to Zoom calls in order to work through the project. However, it proved the point that with the correct process and detailed understanding of the brief, we were able to deliver all the bespoke items in full and on time to the clients exacting standards…”

We have a full bespoke service where clients can select the materials of their choice and work with our design team to produce their creation in 3D so they can see the final design from a full 360 degree view…”
