La Trigale was a full home renovation where the client first approached us early in the planning stage nearly four years ago.  After first expressing interest in our interior furniture and accessories, our client soon realised the extent of our capabilities and began to explore how else she might be able to use our services.

Working closely with us as plans developed, the next couple of years would see the scope of Bonsai’s contribution grow to encompass our full range of offerings including the creation of bespoke joinery, floor coverings, doors and hardware, all the way through to interior furniture, lighting and accessories.

Our client possessed very eclectic tastes, not to mention considerable creative flair, which has made for a hugely rewarding working partnership.  The architects also did an incredible job in reimagining and extending the property and this provided the perfect framework for us to work in.

We had  real fun on this project and the transformation of La Trigale thus far has been truly amazing. Phase two, currently in the design phase, will see the exterior space transformed so we look forward to seeing what may develop there.

Natural European oak was the primary material used for the main floor covering, staircase, joinery & doors.Bonsai’s contributions to the project thus far are as follows:

Bespoke joinery

  • Staircase
  • Cabinetry & storage (curved) in entrance
  • Sliding oak partition door
