Nottingham-based workshop West Bridgford Joinery will unveil Peak Profiles, its new range of bespoke decorative cladding and wall panelling, at Clerkenwell Design Week on 23-25 May 2023 in the festival’s new Catapult showroom.
Designers and architects can choose from one of six designs or develop their own bespoke shapes and profiles by collaborating with the workshop’s experienced in-house designers and skilled craftspeople to create a more unique feature moulding. The range can be made with solid European oak, ash, walnut, sapele, or beech wood, which can all be stained or painted in a range of colours to match existing furniture and colour schemes. It is also available with various different sheen levels and backing options.
West Bridgford Joinery founder and director, Alex Adgar, designed Peak Profiles to offer a more fluid approach to the design process. He said: “The decorative cladding can be made to suit any interior project. There’s nothing we can’t do. We often work with interior designers who have a very specific vision for their wall panelling and the Peak Profiles range can be adapted or developed to match whatever the designer has in mind. Because the Peak Profiles range is made entirely in our workshop, we have complete control from start to finish.”
The Peak Profiles collection is designed and assembled in the West Bridgford Joinery workshop and supplied by locally-based timber suppliers.
The panels are not restricted to standard sheet sizes, with prices starting from £150 per square metre. The experienced design team is happy to discuss solutions for overcoming any technical challenges.
Each profile is named after a ridge in the joinery workshop’s local Peak District: Bamford, Birchen Wharncliffe, Rivelin, Millstone, Baslow and Higgar.
Higgar was designed to show the creative potential of wood panelling. It is made with off-cuts of wood and obsolete moulds in different shapes, sizes, colours and textures from West Bridgford Joinery’s workshop, ensuring Alex’s commitment to reducing his company’s environmental impact.
The upcycled timber moulds will be arranged to play with texture and colour and different profiles can be combined to create a heavily textured surface.
Alex added: “The Higgar profile presents designers with an opportunity to put their own stamp on an interior space. Wood panelling has been used so much over the last ten years, we wanted to create something very different to enable designers to be playful and creative.”
The Peak Profiles panelling can be incorporated into interior schemes, wall panelling, furniture and architectural details such as doorways, apertures and features, which the in-house design team will consider from the initial design stages. West Bridgford Joinery offers an installation service for the Peak Profiles range, so customers can have the panels installed by the makers.
The collection can be used to create backdrops to residential and commercial areas. It was recently specified by Virgile + Partners’ design for luxury health club Third Space’s new Marylebone gym, where punctuated vertical slats of solid timber were fixed to walls that West Bridgford Joinery constructed off-site.
All the panels can be made with FSC-certified wood and the Baslow and Wharncliffe profiles are the range’s acoustic wall panelling offering. The panelling can be made compliant with building regulations by being made fire-rated to ‘Class O’ standard.
The panelling has a 6-8 week lead time, which doesn’t include the design stage.
