MADE TO MEASURE
The bedroom collection affords Bethan the opportunity to extender her signature Nizwa and Dhow patterns into more rooms in the home, where she has particularly treated the headboard space as a perfect canvas for showcasing Shamsian’s beautifully executed marquetry. As one big open space, it makes the most of the pattern and the metallic overlay shines.
There is a charm in the way both patterns work across headboards and bedside cabinets, flowing across each in waves of pattern with an enticing point of view.
Each piece is made to order, allowing for the length and width of the wooden base and the pattern of the headboard to be customised to accommodate different mattress sizes and individual bedroom needs.

Production Lead Times
We use Italian straight grain and Bird’s Eye maple veneer, both hand dyed and laser cut into the petals which are laid together to create the façade panels for our Nizwa cabinets, bar cabinets and chest of drawers. While the grain of each piece of veneer travels in the same direction, a natural difference between each petal, providing wonderful variety in the wood’s texture and ability to catch the light.
To create our distinctive Nizwa ombre effect, Shamsian’s craftsmen build up layers of colour by hand spraying blocks of veneer in stages, ascending the rows of veneer arches from dark to light.
The slim brass arches – slightly beveled to help catch the light – are placed over the seams of each of the veneer petals, disguising where each one comes together, recreating Bethan’s pleasingly repetitive rounded Nizwa pattern.
Solid Brass Feet
Each cabinet is designed with adjustable feet which Shamsian and his team turn by hand on a metal lathe, completed with a highly polished but tactile finish.
