Steve was delighted to be asked by John Lewis & Partners at the Leckford Estate to furnish their Longstock Farm Shop Café. John Lewis & Partners is known for offering quality products and outstanding service to the people that matter most, their customers.
Leckford Estate in Hampshire is the Waitrose Farm. Their produce is supplied to Waitrose stores across the country. Opened in 2013, the Longstock Farm Shop & Cafe is an integral part of the Farm.
Here you can enjoy a stroll around the water garden and plant nursery. It is also popular destination for fresh locally sourced food. This includes produce straight from the estate farm. Longstock is a perfect place to stop off and enjoy refreshments, as well as handmade, home-cooked dishes.
Steven baker Furniture has handmade all the tables and supplied all the seating in the Farm Shop Café. There’s a good choice of larger style trestle tables for family style dining. As well as smaller sized tables for small groups and couples. A playful mix of seating compliments the different table styles.
At Longstock you’ll find tables like this distinctive handmade trestle table created by Steve in English oak. It combines a traditional base with a stunning organic table top. The sides retain the live edge of the trunk slab giving the design a fresh, contemporary feel. It is very eye-catching and an inspirational starting point for many other commissioned tables. The accompanying trestle bench looks fantastic on its own or paired with the table created to your specifications.
Commissioning a bespoke piece is a partnership between Steve and his client. This small square table made by Steve in English oak with slightly tapered legs is just the job when you need a table for two. It is also small enough to tuck into a corner if you have limited space. There’s always the opportunity to make the table just that little bit special. For example, you could choose either a gently distressed or highly polished finish, plain or detailed legs, dovetail joints or rustic wooden peg detailing.
Commissioning a bespoke piece of furniture is a partnership, a truly collaborative experience between you and Steve.
