Custom Made Woodwork Kicks It Up a Notch at Bespoke Global

Bespoke Global specializes in custom commissioned woodworking and other projects. All product presented at the UK-based website have bespoke options, with artisans vetted to ensure exceptional craftsmanship and superior materials.

"We've streamlined the bespoke process, utilizing technology to offer a highly curated, interactive and richly informative shopping experience," the company states at its website. 

Among work at the site is that of Seamus Fairtlough, an Irish woodworker and furniture designer now residing in New York City. His anigre-covered Reflection Screen III vertical panel room dividers feature an overlay design that calls to mind the New York skyscrapers. Both sides are lacquered for protection.

A sampling of Bespoke casegoods artisans include Ian Parker, Sean Feeney and Michael Coffey among many others.

Catering to high end designers and well-heeled clients, Bespoke Global commissioned the Falconry Companion for retailer Neiman Marcus's 2013 Fantasy Catalog. The steamer-trunk styled case with oiled walnut trim and edging, encloses campaign furniture - also oiled walnut - the type Arab sheiks or 19th century European monarchs might have carried to the battlefront.

Included in the Falconry Companion are Chatwin chairs and a foldout table by Richard Wrightman, the foremost designer of bespoke campaign furniture (the King of Jordan is his client). Also, a backgammon board. American black walnut, leather, photographic feathers, and hand painted surface. Marquetry falcon wood inlaid into the lid of the box. The doubling die is veneered with bleached bird's-eye maple, the dice shakers are turned ironwood, and the dice are precision cut.
