In a world of email, instant messages and face time, the humble love letter, charm or token of our affection might seem to belong to bygone era - but we're a bunch of romantics here at Clive Christian Furniture Co.

What memories would you keep in our Ace of Hearts trinket box?
Most of us have a special place for storing our most precious mementos, from scribbled sweet nothings, photos of a special day, memorable gig tickets, a medal or certificate to the tiny beach pebble you picked up to remind you of a special time, event or person.
There’s a rich history of this most human activity. Keepsake or memory boxes, typically made from wood, have been created or purchased to mark life's major events for centuries and are often passed down through families as heirlooms - safe keeping the little things that are of most importance across the generations.
Our Ace of Hearts is an example how we can add the extraordinary to your everyday. Hand crafted in walnut, the internal base is lined in luxurious Muirhead leather. The lid features a contemporary example of marquetry inlay, inspired by the iconic playing card. Consisting of Straight cut Walnut, White Figured Sycamore, Koto and birds Eye maple hand-dyed veneers it presents a modern elegance.
Whether you would like to add a simple monogram to a contemporary console table, recreate the Manhattan skyline over your mantle, indulge in a playful wall of hidden doors – or simply create a personalised keepsake box to compliment your Study - marquetry inlay creates real talkability in your home. We embrace individuality, eclecticism and whimsy, adding creativity, craftsmanship and an approach that’s wholly bespoke to your ideas to create truly special places to live.
We hope you have found our website inspiring, and we would love to stay in contact. To receive the latest news about our products, services, events and promotions, simply provide your details and we’ll do the rest.REGISTER
