At the very core of Julian Chichester's philosophy is to be inspired by the past in order to create exquisitely designed, beautifully crafted, timeless furniture … heirlooms of the future. Pieces that will stand the test of time in both design and construction. The way in which they do this is through mixed media; developing new innovative and advanced finishing techniques while combining them with designs inspired by past taste-makers, in such a way that creates a distinctively unique piece. These include specialist finishing techniques such as verre eglomise, faux shagreen, vellum and parchment, gesso, brass wrapping, cerused oak, nickel plated brass. Their range and variety of hand finishing and craft skills are extensive and constantly evolving.
