Treske have made furniture for the newly restored 13th century Knights’ Chamber which is part of the new visitor and learning centre in the Precincts to the Cathedral, opened by Professor David Starkey in September 2016. The Knights’ Chamber is above the archway leading to the Bishop’s Lodging and can be booked as a venue for an event or meeting.
The Knights Chamber is furnished with three Arts and Crafts tables and 10 further folding tables that can be stored in two specially constructed table storage cupboards. Seating is provided by 66 St Wilfrid chairs that were upholstered in leather. The chairs were fitted with brass plaques with sponsor’s inscriptions
In addition to the tables and seating, a reading lectern was made, an AV storage cabinet and a rise and fall TV cabinet.
Church furniture for The Bray Chantry, St George's Chapel, designed and manufactured by Treske of Thirsk in spalted beech and walnut. The furniture features the Bray badge in its design and includes an altar, credence table, chairs, coffin stools, kneelers, a display cabinet, St Nicholas Folding Chairs.
Treske's brief was to provide seating for up to sixteen with the capacity to extend to twenty-four, with an altar as the central focus. All the furniture makes an eloquent case for 21st century style and craftsmanship in an historic setting.
Old and uncomfortable pews were replacd by specially designed chairs and benches in this East Yorkshire village Church's refurbishment scheme.
