Sneak peak of a stunning #strawmarquetry hall console in blue & green hues with solid bronze frames. Straw marquetry, was first used in the early 20th century by French designer, Jean-Michel Frank. Bored prisoners became craftsman using the straw from the cell floors to make panels. Take a look at some more examples on our website.
Dating back to the 23rd century BCE, #gilding remains every bit as revered today. A highly skilled technique, evoking a sense of richness & reflection. A favourite of @timjgosling! It is difficult to beat the nobility of gold & the part it plays in the alchemy of #interiordesign #gold
I’m so excited to be judging the 2021 #BOATDesignAwards – The nominations are now open !@boatintdesignandinnovationawards.com. This year as the Monaco boat show is postponed. ( or will be in a slimmed down version ) we will be doing a huge amount of the leg work by zoom - but still meeting as a judging panel to discuss every element of every boat ...it takes a great deal of work but this is one of the only awards that is judged by a panel of experts and super yacht professionals.

Pen work is a water colour technique, first made popular in the 1800’s. Created to replicate the glamour and richness of ivory inlaid furniture & exotic lacquer cabinets and screens of the Orient. Gosling uses this skilful technique to bring pattern and depth to unique bespoke designs. Sumptuous!
With only two UK workshops with the skill and machinery to produce engine turning, we think it deserves showcasing. Also known as jewelling, this extraordinary technique dates back to the 20s with the most recognisable example on the nose of Charles Lindbergh’s aircraft, The Spirit of St. Louis. The Gosling design team used engine turning for the side tables and base of this statement sofa for a client in Turkey.
Blue skies, blue straw marquetry and iPhone snaps to start a new week. Straw marquetry was first used in the early 20th century by French designer, Jean-Michel Frank. The particular straw Gosling uses today is grown in the South of France, worked into panels in Normandy and then sent to Tim's cabinetmakers in Yorkshire. It is a wonderful showpiece for a technique which originated in prisons. Bored prisoners used the straw on the floors to create extraordinary works of art. The Gosling bar commissioned by a client in New York makes cocktail hour just that little bit more special. 🍸
Églomisé creates magical, ethereal reflections in this stunning dining room. Verre églomisé is a decorative technique of applying design and gilding to the back face of glass. It is a highly skilled technique derived from the 18th Century French decorator, Jean-Baptist Glomy but the technique dates back to pre-Roman eras. Be sure to scroll right 👉
We are delighted to have the Design Team back in the studio and excited about the weeks ahead. Brimming with creativity and commissions... cautiously onwards. #pietradura #bespoke #bespokefurniture #interiordesign #design
