Michael Westgate trained as an antique restorer before studying fine cabinetmaking and design at Rycotewood College, Oxfordshire. He moved to North Norfolk nearly 25 years ago where he works with interior design stylist Cherry Harrison from their 17th century barn in the heart of the Norfolk countryside. A life long interest in the history of architecture and design has served as a principle inspiration for his work.

We tend to avoid the use of high build finishes preferring instead natural oils and waxes and low build lacquers.
