Congratulations Chordal Green on a job well done!

28.04.17

Chordal Green are celebrating the completion of an amazing job in central Oxford.
This beautiful Victorian house underwent a complete renovation including a unique dressing room featuring silk wallpapered doors and antique mirror, a stylish dark oak study and a bespoke limed oak television unit.
No rest for the wicked though, we are already onto the next project!!

This week our team have been putting together samples ready for a presentation at a house renovation in the Essex countryside!
We are proposing for the study; dyed grey veneers, matt finishes and grey smoked mirrors meeting the client's brief of a calm yet modern feel.

Happy Red Nose Day everyone...

... Chordal Green are also having our own celebration today as we have got the go ahead for a fantastic new project in the heart of Epping Forest! We are especially looking forward to working on this one as we are using some exciting and unusual materials; the master bedroom dressing room is in a beautiful grey eucalyptus with inlaid mirror and shagreen leather. Downstairs there will be a funky bespoke bar with bronze mirrored doors, warmly lit floating shelves and a dark oak top... amazing!!

Steph King spraying a solid timber door frame surrounded by the Essex countryside

Steph has closed the door on our spray booth today and chosen to prime these solid timber door frames out on the farm, with a view of the Essex countryside. The rest of the team have also taken advantage of this beautiful weather and are prepping the remaining frames, ready for hand painting, onsite, at the end of the week.

Chordal Green have hit the headlines!!...

... well, sort of... we are in The Times supplement 'Bricks and Mortar'!!
Our very stylish and sort after interior design colleagues Laura Hammett Ltd are featured in the article along with a photograph of our furniture.
This particular project was a complete home refurbishment of a beautiful apartment in Knightsbridge, London, a far cry from our humble workshop in sunny Essex!
The photograph shows our glamorous, tailor- made walk in wardrobes made from dyed grey Tulip wood and a palladium leaf insert.

Meet our latest recruit. Not content with seeing Mark our MD at home every day (Kathyrn is married to him!), she now works at CG as our Project Manager.
Kathryn quietly organises the rest of us and calmy fights her way through mountains of orders, quotations and paperwork. Pipeline, supply and h&s are a few of the things that Kathryn can turn her hand to. She’s got it nailed.

Chordal Green’s original premises were on a chicken farm - our business was founded eight years ago on the 17th August and we originally worked out of the equivalent of a chicken Airstream - small, shiny and perfectly formed.
We have moved to an arable farm not that far away and our premises are much bigger, so our loyal readership might think we are celebrating with a wild party tonight - sadly nope. We have had such a hard week at work that everyone has gone home to sleep it off.
Happy Birthday Chordal Green!

Continuing our canine theme…
What do you think these strange looking orange objects are, any guesses?

If you are into making hand / bench-made things from wood it’s obvious, apparently…

Mini sanders? No. Anti-slip foot coasters? Nope. Tin tack pots, Nah. Glass panel protectors? Warmer. Airtight Digestive biscuit containers? Even warmer. Give up?

Well meet our Bench Cookies™ made by Bench Dog Tools.
Yep a slightly daft name for some rather nifty little rests, but who cares, we LOVE these clever bits of kit which come from Bench Dog Tools of Minnesota, USA.

Carefully place your easily dented, luxurious panels on these and they are guaranteed not to slip or get scratched. We strongly recommend them. www.benchdog.com

Snagging! 12.06.15

Snagging what's it all about. Chordal Green HQ.

Our fitting crews are always hot and you know it! It is 25 degrees in London and they have been sweating over two projects in the smoke today.

Both locations are completely fitted and at 'snagging' stage and no this does not involve our fitters wearing snagged stockings if you were politely wondering but too shy to ask...
'Snagging' is slang for the painful stage where your client asks you to fix any mistakes you have not spotted or to change things they no longer want - before sign off and final payment.

Meanwhile back at HQ the three of us, Deborah, Deborah's dog 'River' and yours t, swelter in our metal barn, until River can't take the heat any longer and takes Debs for a cooling walk before the rain.
