Bilbury Lane residence, City of Bath

British Furniture Designers & Makers, William Garvey, were commissioned to design and make furniture for a prestigious address in the historic city of Bath for long term-client and leading architectural practice, Red Button Development.

Market trends are showing clear growth for non-laminate materials such as wood, stone and stainless steel, with a strong demand for more efficient storage solutions. This project is a great example of how natural raw materials can elevate different spaces in the home through tailor-made wooden furniture, as well as improve well-being and overall ergonomics.

It was important for William Garvey to create quality pieces of furniture which were sympathetic to the architecture of this Bathonian home. This project transformed a listed building with breath-taking views of the city in the centre of Bath’s World Heritage Site.

Specialists in the craft of working with wood, William Garvey Furniture Makers exploit the advantages of bespoke furniture by tailoring it to the needs of the individual and the space it will occupy. The furniture will last for generations.
