Historical Origin, Design Inspiration And Other Facts

Thornbury Castle is a castle in Thornbury, South Gloucestershire, England. It was begun in 1511 as a home for Edward Stafford, 3rd Duke of Buckingham. It is not a true castle (designed to serve as a fortress), but rather an early example of a Tudor country house, with minimal defensive attributes. It is now a grade I listed building.


The site was occupied by a manor house in 930 AD. Only a part of the original plans for a very grand residence were carried out before the duke was beheaded on the orders of his distant cousin Henry VIII for alleged treason in 1521. Following the Duke's demise the Castle was confiscated by King Henry VIII of England, who stayed at the Castle for ten days in 1535 with his queen, Anne Boleyn. Following the English Civil War the castle fell into disrepair but was renovated in 1824 by the Howard Family. It is situated behind St Mary's Church, a church dating back to the Norman period.


The castle is now a 26 room luxury hotel and restaurant,

Most manufacturer's cabinets come as individual boxes or sections that have to be fitted together.
Many manufacturers, no matter the perceived quality build fake or faux kitchen and bath cabinets with built-in obsolescence using paste boards, veneers, masonite, MDO plywood, melamine and oriented strand board panels with expensive wood sounding names such as walnut or hickory. Usually the only real woods that are used, if any, are found in the doors. With that idea in mind, these type of cabinets will need replacement over and over again therefore creating a regenerating market. Finding structure within the cabinet to mount to the walls can also be a problem.


Our Cabinets Are Solid Real Wood All Over, Built As Full Sections And Easy To Install.


Scottsdale Art Factory cabinets are usually built full section and retrofitted together at our factory saving you many man hours of unnecessary on-site installation, assembly and trim time. An additional benefit of this full section building is that there are no unwanted interior dividing walls or the dividing walls can be placed exactly where you want them. This allows for additional internal usable space and flexibility.


All shelves, back walls, floors, sides, drawers, bottoms etc. are solid finished timber and handmade by or master craftsman. Most of our custom cabinets are made from furniture quality, exotic northern white, core wood cedar. However all solid wood species are available. These solid woods are hand hewn, pegged and tenon joined to form a solid mass.


We use solid timbers and boards that we mill directly from the tree. This allows us the flexibility to create structural thickness that is never laminated. This also allows for special structural crafting to accept any appliance no matter the vintage or maker without structural loss. These cabinets are fine finished pieces of furniture that are as easy to install as furniture.

Scottsdale Art Factory carries on the American Arts And Crafts Movement of the 21st century, in the same way William Morris and John Ruskin (founders of the Arts and Crafts furniture movement in circa 1800 England) inspired Gustave Stickley (founder of the American Arts and Crafts movement) in America circa 1900. Frank Loyd Wright, Charles and Henry Greene (inspired architects of the ultimate cottages such as the Gamble House in Pasadena California) are credited with raising quality standard to its highest level in their day. All of these great master craftsman also inspired the Marbella Brothers in the early 20th Century (founders of SAF circa 1913).


Every creative enterprise is always built on a foundation that was laid down by its predecessors. Creative people are also dependent on the groundwork laid down by those who came before them. H. J. Nick, artist and direct descendant of the Marbella brothers, and Scottsdale Art Factory have built on these foundations and have raised the bar of quality even higher. Thus setting a new standard and offering the finest one of a kind handmade furnishings found anywhere in the world in the 21st century.
