Birce (old English for the humble Birch tree) is our curated collection of crafted cabinets, designed with a visual calm, crafted aesthetic and minimal detail to celebrate the clean lines and showcase the soft warm tones and grain of the Maple faced ply wood.
Hand painted with our signature colour palette, imagined from nature's shades of the South Downs and finished with traditional tactile elements.
The collection focusses on spacious everyday usability.
‘In Englands Green and Pleasant Land’ - William Blake.
We are surrounded by the beauty and shades of the South Downs, colours naturally in perfect harmony and where we call home.
It’s these colours that inspired our first signature palette of inherently natural colours. A palette to enhance most interior schemes, from calming greens like our Appleterre to Harebell Pink, known to reduce stress.
Seven intensely pigmented colours imagined from the harmonised shades of the South Downs: Sussex White, Flint, Gorse Bud, Harebell Pink, Chalk Stream, Appleterre and Dew Pond.

Birce Cabinet Crafting
The Birce Cabinet is designed with an everyday functionality and useful purpose in mind, presented with a quiet aesthetic to gently enhance your home.
Evolved from an ambition to create a contemporary piece, acknowledging traditional cabinet design principles, offering an antidote to other more common and transient designs. This is achieved through celebrating the clean lines of the material, refined proportions and paring back details and anything unnecessary whilst adding tone and a tactile element through the hardware and finishes.
All Birce Cabinets are hand-made by artisans in our West Sussex workshop. This approach means we are able to offer bespoke pieces and alterations. If you would like any alterations or to commission a unique piece please enquire here.
BESPOKE & CUSTOMISATION
Our furniture is designed and handmade in our small independent British workshop. This process means we can make alterations to our curated collections and invite commissions for truly bespoke pieces and collaborations.
We will use our craft and skills to realise your ideas, all with our unique Pilgrim handwriting and sensibility.
If you would like any changes to our cabinets, or to commission something unique, please get in touch with us.
