St Nicholas Church, Cuddington had St Magnus stacking benches, chairs and armchairs made by Treske as part of their church reordering. The brief was to seat 60 on stacking chairs and to provide a further 23 two to three seater, easy to move and flexible, stacking benches.
Based on the St Magnus design the benches and chairs were upholstered rather than rush seated, and made in oak. Members of the PCC came to Treske to view the workshops both prior to and during manufacturing, and with Treske making a photographic record of the work, were able to keep their church informed of progress to the delivery deadline.
Treske take an enormous amount of care to consult and advise their clients to make sure their needs are met and everyone is kept informed.
After some years of consultation between the church, congregation and Treske designers, Treske made over 600 chairs for St Magnus Cathedral, Kirkwall on the main island of Orkney.
Designs for a moveable altar table, ambo, credence table, chair and stool were inspired by the Victorian transept arches of St Chad's. Made in fumed oak which will darken with time, the furniture is clearly contemporary yet sympathetic to its setting. Two hundred and fifty oak chairs with book troughs were also commissioned, forty with arms.
Treske made and installed a co-ordinated set of furniture, including the tower screen, vestry table and vestment wardrobe, seating, porch notice boards, bookcases, library table, serving table, pulpit and Southwell chairs, as well as supplying 40 Howe 40/4 chairs.
