Timber

We source British, American, and European timbers for our furniture. Our timber is carefully selected to ensure we are using the most hardwearing materials possible.

Upholstery

Our upholstery is made up of only natural materials. Frames are made of solid beech. For filling, our upholsterers use natural materials such as hessian, coco fibres, and feathers. Wool is used in place of Flame-Resistant (FR) treated materials. FR chemicals are proven to be toxic to humans and animals. We have pledged not to use any such materials in our designs. Wool is naturally fire-retardant and passes all UK Fire Regulations.

Finishes

We always prioritise natural, non-toxic materials to finish our work. From natural oils to vinegar solutions, we do our best to avoid harmful chemicals.

Oils

Osmo Oil

We use a specially formulated blend of natural waxes and oils that penetrate and nourishe our timber furniture. Lacquer or varnish coats wood with a plastic shell or skin, leaving it susceptible to cracking, flaking, or peeling over time.
Osmo oil is absorbed into the wood, providing a barrier seal making it wear resistant, water and dirt-repellent, durable, and extremely hard wearing.

Osmo Water Protector

The tops of our tables are sealed with Osmo Water Protector. This allows for the table tops to be completely water resistant. Any wear can be easily renovated, for reapplication simply requires light sanding and a fresh coat of oil.

Natural Colours

Blackened Oak

We achieve a natural black using traditional methods. Instead of using toxic wood stains, we rely on nature’s chemistry. Oak has high levels of tannin, a natural acid.
We mix an iron oxide solution (steel wool in white vinegar) which reacts to this natural acid, resulting in a blackened colour. This is a natural process, identical results are impossible and each piece of furniture is unique.

Pigmented Linseed Oil

A heavily pigmented linseed oil. We wet the timber to raise the grain, sanding it back down to 180 grit before wetting it again and letting it dry. We then apply the oil, which is left to absorb into the timber for 45 minutes. The oil is buffed off with a cloth and left to sit for 3 days.
On the 3rd day, a second coat of oil is applied and buffed off. The furniture is then left to cure for 14 days to ensure the pigmented oil has settled into the timber. A long-winded process that achieves unique results.
