With Spring in the air, we’re delighted to launch the beautiful, hand made English oak Tavistock Conservatory Table.
When the Dowager Duchess of Bedford wanted a piece of furniture made, she turned to us, as she has done for many years. And while we have more than 40,000 designs in our archive, a plant stand/conservatory table we did not have. So our design office worked with the Duchess until the “Tavistock” table was born.
Hand-made from solid English oak with six deep steps for plants or objects, a pot board, and a roomy drawer, this piece of furniture can liven up and be useful anywhere it is placed.
Says MD Jamie Cooper: “We liked the design so much that we’ve put it into production in our workshop – with the permission of the Duchess, of course – and we are delighted with it.”
The Duchess meanwhile has put hers in her home at Woburn. She says: “When I saw a picture of an old and very dilapidated pine conservatory table with shelves in a European country home sale, I thought what a wonderful and useful piece of furniture. I thought it could inspire a modern version.”
The Tavistock Conservatory Table, £1,495. For each table sold, we’ll make a donation of 10 per cent of the price to the Tavistock Trust for Aphasia. The Trust was founded by the Duchess’ late husband in 1992 – further information can be found here at http: www.aphasiatavistocktrust.org
