King’s Court, Holt: The Grand Opening

Share this article

Yesterday I was invited to go along to the grand opening of King’s Court, Kingsley Healthcare’s brand new luxury care home in Holt, Norfolk. I felt honoured to be asked, normally we don’t get invited to these types of events and it is understandable, we’re just a cog in a huge mechanism of a new build or a refurbishment, we spend a few days on site installing our furniture then we’re gone so I guess we don’t really get noticed, which in some ways is a good thing.

It was fantastic to see our furniture which we installed into a nearly completed building site back in January, now fully dressed by the talented Jacqui and David Smith of HomeSmiths Ltd it certainly had the wow factor!

King’s Court, Holt: The Grand Opening

I thoroughly enjoyed the tour of the building, Jacqui Smith guided us through the home explaining the reasoning behind the artwork, colour schemes and their connections to the local area, the attention to detail was fantastic.

It was great to speak with other people who were involved in the build and hear about their experiences of how it went and what was learnt.  I was asked one question quite a few times: “Which item of furniture is your favourite?” It’s a tough one to answer, every piece of furniture we have created for this project is special, the reception with it’s illuminated fret cut panels, the servery with the solid Oak detailing or the tree table, a table built around a tree….. For me it has to be the Library, a simple design but really effective.

The room is situated on the first floor at the corner of the building overlooking the main entrance with an exit to an open air patio terrace. Plenty of light for reading and relaxing.

I’ll be sharing more from this project in the coming weeks and months, it will be the job that keeps on giving, the variety and scope of the furniture is fantastic, plus I’m stoked to share what we have been working on.

Have a fantastic Easter weekend all!
