Small Occasional Table

This photo shows a small occasional table finished with black lacquer in the Chinoiserie-style. The small size makes this table versatile. We used black and red lacquer with gilt (23 karat Gold) decorations. The gilt pattern imitate fretwork that was also used to decorate these types of oriental tables.

Rosewood Veneered Breakfront Bookcase

This large Rosewood veneered breakfront bookcase was designed to house the entertainment unit and function as a bookcase. There is also ample storage area not just in the lower cabinetry but behind the columns as well.

This photo shows the three drawers that was designed to hold CDs and DVDs. There are concealed hinges in the door that’s invisible when the door is closed.   

This photo shows the hidden storage area inside the columns. These doors also close with hidden hinges. The door could be opened in a wide angle for easy accessibility.

Boulle-style Library

The photo shows the finished library steps from the side. There are brass line works inserted around the edges into a black lacquered background and a pair of reproduction brass handle was added for easy lifting.

This photo shows the library steps’ frontal view. Understated brass mountings decorate the top of the front. The raw timber areas are recessed, ready to receive cut-out carpet pieces that matches the client’s carpet in their library.

Life-size Picture Frame

Design of a largen than life-size picture frame for the portrait of the headmaster of Scots College, Bellevue Hill in Sydney.
It was important to incorporate the flowers of the Waratah and the Scottish Thistle into the design as these two flowers have central role in the college ‘s coat of arms.

On the left is the design of the Warratah flower and on the right the already carved model of the Scottish Thistle flower.

These are the two hands carved models we have used to take silicon rubber moulds from for the frame. These two flower motives were repeated throughout the entire frame.

This picture was taken showing the finished frame in its position at the college.
The frame was gilt using Dutch metal(imitation gold) and gently aged to emphasize the floral pattern and to give the decorations some depth.

Marble Topped Console Table

This marble topped console table was designed to have two ebonised lions head and feet, standing on a low pedestal. The chosen timber was rosewood as a background with parcel gilt highlights. The background mirror reflects the back of the feet and helps to light up a room with reflected light. Its relatively small size made this piece ideal for a smaller apartment.

“Inhof Restoration were an absolute delight to work with. With their help my beautiful Gilt Victorian Console Table which was left to me by my parents is back to it’s original beauty. Thanks Attila and Cecilia”
