Chairs handmade by Kent-based bespoke furniture maker Tudor Oak will enjoy global exposure when they appear in the new James Bond film, Spectre, due for nationwide release on 26th October.
For Spectre, Tudor Oak produced 40 of its best chairs and carvers, which appear in one of the film's central scenes. Made in a traditional 17th century early English design, they feature turned underframes and are upholstered in coffee brown hide. The designs were adapted to an exacting specification provided by the film’s Oscar-winning set designer, Anna Pinnock.
Tudor Oak's MD Sasha Kamenetski comments: “We were honoured to be approached by Anna with such an exciting and high-profile commission. When the film’s production team announced that the furniture was needed in double-quick time, the whole company set to work to make sure we didn’t let them down.
"Along with everyone else playing a part in such a famous project, we were sworn to secrecy, so it’s fantastic to now be able to talk openly about our links to the famous James Bond brand. Who knows, maybe, one day, Tudor Oak furniture will become as synonymous with high quality and tradition as Bond’s Aston Martin and his love of all things British."
