Creating a dream home

One of our largest private commissions came from the highly successful business couple Rod and Sheila Flavell. They had decided to demolish their property overlooking Brighton Marina, and replace it with a purpose-built home.

Our first task was to create a pair of walnut walk-in wardrobes, and then furniture for their separate offices (walnut-panelled bookshelves for Rod, and a Eucalyptus desk and chest of drawers for Sheila).

A Eucalyptus book case to match their existing bed and bedside table followed – with the team at 1718 suggesting that it doubled as the bed’s headboard, making the most of the room’s impressive space.

The skills of our team were then called upon to create a large walnut wall panel for the TV room, a full fit-out in ash for their lovely wine room, and a beautiful curved bar area with smoked glass shelves for the snooker room.

“Having the opportunity to create everything you’ve always wanted in a home, you need people you can trust to deliver the very best in craftsmanship. Michael Mancini and the 1718 team always rise to the challenge for us – everything is created with loving care and an extraordinary eye for detail.”
