Our European oak is carefully selected from managed forests to carefully construct solid timber furniture. To maintain the beautiful light colour of the Oak, a water based sealant is applied without a topcoat. The color of White Oak shifts gradually from light to dark brown the further one gets into its heartwood. It is an ideal wood for furniture making. It is resistant to decay and adaptable to fine finishing techniques.
Care - Regular cleaning with a damp cloth and then a dry cloth is advised. If you are wanting to add a topcoat for extra protection from day to day use, please follow the instructions from the supplier and test on an inconspicuous area so that you are happy with the finish selected before applying to visible areas. Avoid areas in direct contact with sunlight, high-use areas, and areas exposed to air-conditioning, heat sources or moisture. Exposure will result in yellowing and timber movement due to moisture loss.
Reclaimed Teakwood (indoor) The color of teakwood is golden like amber. It is beautiful, extremely durable and requires little maintenance, which make teakwood excellent for furniture. All our teakwood is reclaimed from old buildings and structures. We receive the wood still with nails and original paint, before we restore it and bring it to new life. We love our teak furniture for the story they tell.

Black Walnut is loved for its dark heartwood. Its color is brown with shades of purple and streaks of gold. The wood is hard and durable yet pleasant to work with, and it forms into the highest quality furniture.

The reclaimed wood used in our production is certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). The FSC stamp guarantees that our furniture is produced in compliance with standards of sustainable forests and plantation management. Solid wood is dynamic and adapts naturally to the environment. This makes it a durable material that will stand the test of time.
