These Bespoke Hand Painted Alcove Units incorporating a Television were created to surround a natural stone fireplace for some clients in West Littleton, South Gloucestershire.
The Bookshelves above the worktop are of the very rigid 'Box Section' construction which enables them to easily span the width without sagging under the weight of the books.
The Worktops are made of polished solid European oak.
Below the oak worktops are a symmetrical pair of three door cabinets.The outer doors of these cabinets are hung on stainless steel butt hinges recessed into the frames in the traditional manner. The middle doors of the cabinets are hung on 'Blum' concealed hinges. The cupboards each contain an adjustable height shelf.
The cupboard on the right-hand side, below the television, contains the television's peripheral equipment (satellite box, DVD etc.) with the cables for the TV concealed behind the TV. The Television is mounted on an extending TV swivel bracket screwed through the reinforced back of the cabinet into the wall behind.
The Alvove Unit Bookshelves and Cupboards are painted in Farrow and Ball's FRENCH GRAY number 18.
