The Vawdrey Group Project

The Vawdrey reception desk is complete!

Renowned Furniture have been getting pulled into the commercial space of fine furniture making and supply over the past few years and we feel that the clients are seeing the benefits of dealing with a supplier willing to flex to their specific requirements.

The silver blades (made to look a little like the structural ribs that make up a semi-trailer frame) are constructed from solid core mdf and 2 pack painted using automotive paint, there are stainless steel boss stand-offs supporting 10 mm thick custom toughened glass for the floating tops. The work tops are solid core veneer done in American oak.
