Credenza commissioned from Jonathan Baring Furniture

A credenza commissioned from Jonathan Baring by Guilded for client in the Hamptons


This credenza is the first of a series of commissions Guilded is delivering to a client in the Hamptons, USA.

The concept was to propose a piece of furniture that would ground a vast mirror triptych already commissioned for the dining area wall. The design needed to harmonise with the architecture, existing furnishings and provide some additional storage.

Our client agreed to entertain our proposal to work up a design with Jonathan Baring Furniture. Guilded recommended Baring not just for his cleaned lined, classic and reponsive approach to design but for his team’s exquisite craftsmanship and professionalism.

Guilded provided the brief and, responding to Baring’s suggestion to combine subtle fumed oak and patinated bronze, requested the application of shagreen to add a luxurious, contrasting textural quality to the piece.

Our client proceed to commisison and the result is the epitome of timeless, understated elegance: finished to an outstanding level of attention to detail.
