Purchased from The Artisan Collection designed and crafted to suit our client's specifications with a rebaited back to fit flush over her high skirting, and perfectly in proportion on a narrow wall. This stunning surround piece will sit beautifully around our client's gas fireplace in a new build and will transform her gas fireplace into a beautiful feature, hand-carved out of solid wood mahogany and hand-painted in the TR Studio a finish chosen to perfectly fit into her interior space.

  • Hand-painted in Midnight Chalk Paint with subtle texture using a Staalmeester round series 2020 brush, and a pure bristle brush 3600 series.
  • Waxed with Victorian Black coloured wax over the top.
  • Champagne gilding detailing using Champagne Gold Gilding wax from The Artisan Company

The Artisan Company is a New Zealand owned and based company focussed upon making and making and providing the highest quality decorative paints and tools for homes and all types of spaces. Born out of a rich heritage of bespoke furniture and interiors through the merging of Taylored Revival and Vintro Paint NZ and with several decades of experience we are unashamedly focused upon luxury DIY products and in helping people achieve bespoke looks in their interiors. 


As NZ's only bespoke paint manufacturer making our flagship Premium Chalk Paint we combine technology with our fine tuned natural skills. We use advanced machinery with an exact accuracy measured within less than a ¼ of a ml and use a custom formulation database with complex colours formulated by hand; most of which can't be replicated by machines. We are a proud NZ company who promotes and uses local suppliers and products wherever possible. We also aim to have a positive impact on environment through low VOC paints, minimised wastage and smart use of materials.


To provide the best possible experience for our customers we have also curated artisanal tools including the world renowned Staalmeester brushes which work in perfect  unison with our Premium Chalk Paint and otehr ranges with there rich and creamy consistency. From the advanced bristle materials through to the  INOX steel ferrules it all really helps to achieve the best results, and yes brushes do make a big difference to your painting experience and finish.

Aside from our unique range of products, we are also proud of our decades worth of experience in the field of decorative painting and training. Having been recognised locally and overseas for these efforts has also led us to directly train over three thousand people and paint over two thousand bespoke furniture or interior pieces for clients.
