Contemporary Bog Oak Rippled Blanket Chest by Edward Johnson

$19,568.10per item

About

The contemporary 'Bog Oak Ripples' blanket / linen chest by Edward Johnson forms part of his Ripples collection. Inspired by the action of a stone dropping into water, the principal intention was to produce a surface that could replicate the fluidity of water with solid materials, whilst creating elegant, clean and flowing forms which allow the materials to provide the detail. This blanket chest is made to order and is a limited-edition of 15. This blanket chest was awarded a prestigious Bespoke Guild Mark in 2016 (Guild Mark No. 460). This prestigious accolade is awarded by the furniture industry’s governing body in the UK, The Furniture Maker’s Company. With only a few awarded each year, the award highlights and recognizes some of the best pieces of furniture in the country. The blanket chest shown is made from the most gorgeous example of bog oak which is approximately 5000 years old. This very rare form of timber is oak that has been preserved in ancient peat bogs, where the acidic anaerobic conditions have turned the oak a rich black color. The interior is finished in a fantastic burr olive ash for added drama and contrast. The blanket chest can also be made in a range of different timbers. Edward Johnson’s unique maker’s mark is inlaid into the chest. Dated and hallmarked by The Goldsmiths’ Company assay office (UK), this solid silver maker’s mark adds an elegant finishing touch. Perhaps made more poignant, as it is finely etched with Edward’s fingerprint, a legacy to the craftsman’s touch. Dimensions: 128cm (W) x 55cm (H) x 50cm (D).

Customization Options

All our made to order furniture is designed and handcrafted in Sussex in the UK and therefore variations are available e.g. alternative timber combinations, small design tweaks and small dimension changes. The Bog Oak chest can be made, for example, in rippled ash with burr maple interior or English walnut with burr ash interior, alongside many other timber combinations. Please contact us to discuss your options and requirements.
