Golf might be our game after all!!!

Our interior design team have been receiving much appreciated praise from one of our longest standing clients – Kingsbarns Golf Club and Castle Stuart Golf Club. The design team – Bruce, Sally and Lynsey were pleased to specify the interior furnishings of the main clubhouse at Castle Stuart. Managing partner Mark Parsinen was so pleased with the result that we have also now fitted the interior furniture and soft furnishings of two self catering lodges within the grounds. It was a pleasure for us to work on these projects alongside G1 Architects who designed the impressive interior layouts and finishes of these spaces.

We are proud to say that in a recent testimonial, Mark has said many complimentary things about our service – “Kingsbarns and now Castle Stuart Golf Links enjoy welcoming and comfortable clubhouses in no small part because of the exceptional guidance and service provided by Bruce and Sally Dick of John Dick & Son, the fine furniture and interior design firm in Glasgow. Our goal for the interior design at both Kingsbarns and Castle Stuart was to create an elegant yet understated, warm and comfortable clubhouse interior to enjoy oneself before and after golf. Their top-to-bottom counsel proved critical in achieving these goals. Our golfers owe a large part of their full and pleasurable golfing experience to the artful advice on colour, fabric, and furniture choices provided so thoughtfully by Bruce and Sally. Their professionalism and friendly manner spanning 13 years of working together have meant the world to me. I recommend them wholeheartedly and without reservation.”

Combining fashion and fabric, and lovingly handcrafted in the UK, this is a sofa in which to relax and unwind on – whether it’s after a long hard day at work or for curling up on at the weekend. Available at John Dick & Son - price from £1100.



ROLL UP, ROLL UP AND READ ALL ABOUT IT
