English way to work’
Throughout the Georgian
and Victorian periods it was typical in most large houses
that the Gentleman of the house would work on business
in a special place individually designed to their taste
and work needs. This place - the Gentleman’s Study
was a truly private space. Highly personalised, they
reflected the character and nature of their patron more
than any other room in the house.
With the rich polished finish of dark hand-made furniture
and the soft familiar feel of aged leather to the scent
of vintage folios, these private retreats gave a calm
quality ideally suited for contemplation and inspiration.
This elegant, bygone English tradition
is now very much back in vogue. Entrepreneurs, executives
both men and women are all looking for a unique space
in their home allowing them to escape from today’s
fast moving business world into a calmer work environment.
Today’s home study captures all of the quintessential
elements of the past from elegant hand made furniture,
paneled libraries to highly personalized interior decoration
and atrefacts, such as an exquisitely
made marquetry box.
At Wheathills, we can help you define
your traditional study in every detail. Using our new
design resource centre you can review styles and fashions
through the ages and choose exactly how you want your
private study to look. We then take care of everything
– preparing artistic impressions, working drawings
