The two 'before' photos at the bottom of this sequence show how insignificant the kitchen ceiling looked initially with its single narrow beam. By simply fitting our beam over the existing one and adding more to make a feature of the ceiling, we have given it a more substantial feel and introduced a period character that is more in keeping with the rest of the room.
The ceiling design features our T1A as the main beam with wall plate and T2 half for the joists. All are in our mellow oak finish.
"We wanted to add some character to an old 1950s terrace. We chose the beams from Oakleaf as they looked really authentic. We are very pleased with the results, the beams look absolutely fantastic, giving a rustic and realistic cottage feel. They are light and easy to fit and I would definitely recommend this product."... Mr & Mrs Pye
A short length of the gilded, carved wood and gesso original was removed from its setting and sent for reproduction. Firstly, a mould was made of this small piece, followed by several copies, which were carefully joined together to make the 2m long production model, from which a further mould was made, and the required quantity of mouldings produced.
(Chatsworth has kindly allowed Oakleaf to offer this beautiful piece for sale - please contact our sales department for details)
