The 200-year-old house, built from Cotswold limestone, sits in a valley in Gloucestershire on a site that has been occupied since the 15th century. The garden has been re-planted by the current owners - developing a rose garden, orchard and vegetable garden. The formal garden in front of the house looks out over a wooded valley, part of its seven-acre estate; the small summerhouse behind it was originally built for a footman.
The distinguishing feature of the Xilos table collection, available in a square version (178x178 cm) and three round sizes, is its cross-shaped frame in grey oak, brushed light oak, black oak or smoked oak. The round version is also available with a top in white Calacatta marble or Emperador marble and can be paired with a swivel tray in two sizes (∅ 70 cm and ∅ 110 cm) and six finishes (the same types of wood as the frame or with a top in white Calacatta marble or Emperador marble).
“I hold a beast, an angel, and a madman in me, and my enquiry is as to their working, and my problem is their subjugation and victory, down throw and upheaval, and my effort is their self-expression.” ― Dylan Thomas
