Guild Mark for Dorchester Abbey Choir Stalls

This week we heard the good news that the Dorchester Abbey choir stalls have been awarded the prestigious, bespoke Guild Mark by the Worshipful Company of Furniture Makers, which represents Britain’s Furniture Industry. The award is given by a nine-person jury of the country’s top designers and craftsmen and is judged on the basis of excellence in design, materials, craftsmanship and function.

As can be seen from the images we also installed the clergy seating to complement the choir stalls this week.
