- Ludwig Mies van der Rohe (Famous Architect)
As far as classical and gothic church furniture goes this statement rings very true.From carved acanthus leaves to vaulted arches,the design of churches built in the style of these eras have used some amazing geometry.To be given the opportunity to design and create furniture following the style of these fantastic buildings is something we at Declan Sexton and Sons are very proud of.
Beginning the process of classical or gothic design for a church in your community is as simple as calling us or by clicking on our "Lets get started" tab.From there a site visit from one of the Declan Sexton and Sons team is the best starting point from which we can liaise with both clergy and parish commitees to start the design process.From here we can take into consideration your requirements and the existing architecture of the church..We welcome all ideas,photos and drawings regardless of how simple,as this will help us to advise on the best classic or gothic design for you.
Once we have a feel the area you wish to furnish,services you may wish to integrate such as light,sound and electrical,and an idea of the particular look you’re in search of, we then apply ourselves to the rewarding experience of designing your bespoke classic or gothic piece.And to help you visualise the end product we can create the necessary drawings, from simple front elevation to an artist’s impression. When you decide on your design, style and finish, we begin the work on your bespoke furniture.
Made from the finest materials, all of our altars,ambos,chairs and other church furniture are individually crafted, traditionally jointed and finished in our workshop at Ballynevin, and when the time comes, your bespoke piece will be installed by one or more of the Sexton family partnership of Declan Sexton and Sons.
A browse through the photographs of some of the classic and gothic themed furniture commissioned by the parish committee of the church of St. Cuan and Brogan in Clonea Power Co.Waterford might give a sense of what you and your community may like for your bespoke piece. And don’t hesitate to call us with your questions and queries.
