The nature of our business and the contacts we have established over the years enables us to assist clients in a variety of ways:
Guilded will introduce you to the right workshop or artist to create what you want to achieve. We are independent and clients are assured of our detailed attention to help them achieve their aims.
For example, Bentheim UK wanted to have a dining table made to unusual technical specifications in a style that exudes 'French flea market chic'. Guilded introduced David Bentheim to Rupert Bevan and his studio and then stood back, allowing client and designer maker to develop a design. The commission is illustrated on the right.
Our business is to keep our finger on the pulse of art, design and craftsmanship in the UK. Interior designers and private clients look to Guilded for our fresh perspective and suggestions for spaces. Most requests for help begin with a one-line email to which we respond by drawing out what we need to inform our first response, all without obligation to the client.
Sourcing and procurement
Guilded is a valuable resource for researching, advising on, sourcing and procuring works of art or interior furnishings. Our service is global, with the example with one client that they were in the Far East, the piece identified was in the US and it was purchased through Guilded in the UK. Charlotte Bowater, our Founder, draws on her extensive experience in the art market and is a dedicated and single point of contact for her client in respect of procurement. Delivery and installation are also arranged as required. Our ability to provide total anonymity during the negotiation and procurement process is particularly valued by higher profile clients.
