    River Bespoke, the Norfolk based independent brand, specialise in the design and manufacture of beautiful, handcrafted and bespoke shelves, which, when put together in clusters on a wall deliver a striking and unique feature for expressing style and personality.

    The simple, elegant designs provide the perfect way of rotating decorative accessories, making it easy to update a space or change the decor with the season. The design team are focussed on achieving a seamless finish so all joints are hidden creating a true floating effect. The product is completely customisable from frame size and layout, frame colour and finish, to timber choice.

    The decision: Time for a change

    “In April last year we actually decided to make it happen and we purchased a house in Norfolk. We immediately started updating it to fit our style and never finding quite the right “accessories” started designing and making our own furniture and shelving so we could achieve a unique finish. People have always commented on our designs and how beautiful they are, but it wasn’t until we had our kitchen fitted and received positive feedback from our kitchen company Harvey Jones that we decided to take a huge leap of faith and start our own business.

    Tim, an engineer at heart, loves the creativity and engineering whilst I get excited talking to potential clients and interior designers about projects and partnerships. We love the fact that we have created something together, exploiting our strengths to achieve a shared goal.”

    Celebrating our first commercial feature wall installation – Langham, London

    To date we have focussed on residential installations, but we’ve always said our bespoke feature walls would work equally well in a commercial setting. We’ve now been able to prove it thanks to a commission from the world-renowned Langham Hotel, London.

    The brief: A luxurious yet functional feature wall

    The Langham wanted a unique and eye-catching backdrop for their champagne bar in Palm Court, one that would look stunning but also be functional for a busy, customer-facing area. We worked closely with the Langham Hotel team to design the layout, materials choices and finishing touches. With ambient lighting, wallpaper and antiqued mirrors, we have helped them to create a truly beautiful area to compliment the luxurious Palm Court.

    The verdict: “A beautiful champagne bar that fits the bill perfectly”

    Karina Ellias, Director Food and Beverage commented “We have been wanting to update the bar in Palm Court for some time and were looking for something different and special, River Bespoke’s shelves fitted the bill perfectly. We now have a beautiful champagne bar completing the stunning Palm Court. River Bespoke were very easy to work with from the initial concept, design and renders to working with our team to install the shelves on the day. Fitting was easy and flawless. Thank you River Bespoke.”

    A word about the situation we find ourselves in

    It’s going to be a quiet and difficult time for interior designers and bespoke furniture makers, but these times will pass, and the world will return to normal far better prepared than ever before. We can take this time to reflect on our interiors and be doing all we can to exit this isolation period with smarter redecorated houses and businesses.
