These latest designs from Barry Cotton are now available. The range of "Musical Furniture" employs the use of old musical instruments together with exotic woods creating truly unique and fun pieces of furniture. Each piece is handmade to order and is available in a range of various sizes and finishes with the instrument of your choice. If there is a particular instrument you are interested in but not pictured on our site we will endeavour to track it down and turn it into a piece of furniture. We specialise in private commissions and are happy to quote for your specific requirements.

Jun 01, 2010   Agatha Christie's Original Writing Table

Barry Cotton has recently sold Agatha Christie's original writing table.


The mid 19th century writing table was purchesed by Barry Cotton in 2009 from

an estate sale that included several pieces from the late Agatha Christies London

home. Agatha Christie is recognised  as  the worlds most prolific crime writer of all

time and it is so exciting to think that she must have writen some of her most famous

works on this very desk.


The desk had been stored in an attic for several years and was in a very sad state.

It was lovingly restored and given a new lease of life by Barry's expert restorers.


It was recently sold at the High Point Furniture Show in North Carolina, USA to a

designer working on behalf of a client who happens to be a writer!


Barry Cotton is delighted that this important desk with all its  history has found such

a good home. We hope that it gives its new owner the same inspiration that it gave

Agatha Christie.
