Wood Gallery

We value individuality and are proud to offer our extensive range of furniture in a variety of stunning wood veneers. Whether you prefer light or dark woods or the more adventurous two toned finishes, you’ll find it here. We can also create a bespoke wood stain or painted finish to suit your style.

Wood is a wonderful material that creates a beautiful visual; with no two pieces ever the same, the variation seen in grain patterns, hue, sap and resin markings simply adds to the uniqueness of your furniture. Our veneers are of the highest quality, always sourced from well managed forests and are FSC certified. Veneers are obtained by cutting thin slices from tree trunks clearest of branches to avoid large knots and blemishes. These sheets can be laid next to each other to produce seamless joins which cannot be achieved with solid wood. For strength we use solid Oak for our dining chairs which are then stained to match the veneer options available.
Items ordered either from stock or ordered at different times in the same wood finish will match but we cannot guarantee an exact match. It must be appreciated that by using real wood there will always be a variance in tone, grain and markings, which is testament to its origin as a tree. Natural woods mature over time due to the effect of natural sunlight so there will be differences in colour of newly bought furniture and existing furniture despite them being made in the same wood. These differences will fade over time
We take our environmental responsibility seriously and by using veneers, ensure that only a small fraction of a tree is used to make each piece of furniture. If a tree species is endangered or at risk of illegal logging we instead choose sustainable natural wood veneers and stain them to replicate the beauty of these woods.
Make your purchase with confidence by ordering complimentary swatches of the available wood finishes to help you purchase with confidence.

Faux Leathers

Infiniti and Ultima are stunning examples of how good faux leathers can be. Beautifully made with a soft handle and leather texture, a beautiful alternative to natural leather. Super tough for heavy use and easy to clean.

Fabrics (new)

We have selected a superb range of beautiful yet very hard-wearing fabrics to complement our furniture. Colore is a smart collection of fine hopsack weave chenilles. Porto Cervo is a stunning collection of flat weaves with both plain stripe tweed designs. Ribelle is a contemporary collection of velvet cords. Moda is a beautiful collection of natural look plains with a very soft handle. Cambio is a stunning collection of luxury soft velvet plains

 

Premium Leathers

Offering good light-fastness, stain resistance and easier cleaning, our premium leathers offers excellent durability. Natural leather is a wonderful material: soft, warm and luxurious, it is an attractive and durable upholstery option. The variations in grain and veining are hallmarks of its beauty and we’ve chosen leathers that aren’t heavily processed so they retain their natural soft and supply qualities. They stretch, wrinkle and breathe much like our own skin, and will continue to mature with use and improve in appearance over time.

Further information on the Natural Characteristics of Leather Hide Real leather is a natural product. It breathes; it is warm and has individual characteristics, which are part of the natural charm and beauty of real hide. As a natural product however, it will display traces of its past, such as brand marks, healed scars, neck growth lines, veins and areas of differing fibre density and hair pore structure. These marks all appear in high quality leather and are not defects. Natural leather proudly bears these marks as hallmarks of its origin. These individual characteristics and marks have been accumulated gradually over the years; they are not weakening defects and will not shorten the life of the leather. In fact, they are considered to enhance the appearance and distinguish natural leather from imitations. If you find these markings, you can be confident that you have purchased real leather. In the first few weeks of using leather furniture it will acquire further natural creases and wrinkles as the fillings settle down.

Shade Variation. No two hides are totally identical and, due to the variations in grain structure and fibre density as mentioned above, the dyes and finishes penetrate to differing degrees into the various parts of the hide to give attractive variations. Whilst every attempt is made to achieve uniformity, this is not always possible. Each hide is unique; patterns and colour samples should always be regarded as no more than a guide.

Maintenance. Lighter colours of leather may become permanently stained by coming into contact with non-colourfast fabrics or clothing. Denim jeans, and sweat pants are particular culprits. Never sit on leather furniture when wearing denim or similar clothing that is damp. Wet hair and some hair care products may also have a similar effect. Newspapers can also leave traces of ink on leather furniture, and can permanently discolour the finish. Dye transfer resulting from these causes will not be accepted as a claim against a leather manufacturer. Leather upholstery should not be exposed to bright sunlight for prolonged periods, as this will likely result in fading. Protect leather furnishings by drawing curtains or blinds. Also, avoid having leather upholstery close to radiators. Heat causes drying out, cracking and removal of preservative oils and waxes. Beware of clothing which contains buckles or rivets since these can damage leather finishes. Similarly care should be exercised when allowing children’s toys or house pets near leather furnishings since these can easily scratch the finish.

Cleaning. Dust leather furniture regularly with a soft cloth. Leather pores can be kept free from dust particles and grime by regular vacuuming, ideally once a week. Occasional overall cleaning should be carried out by wiping over with a tepid solution of pure soaping agent (such as Lux flakes or Dreft), applied using a damp cloth, but taking care not to over-wet the leather. Polishes, creams, detergents, varnishes and stain removers should be avoided. They may cause damage to the leather.
