Our Woods

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.

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.

A curated selection of woods with light to dark options to suit your décor


We apply a pigment to natural Oak veneers to create a lighter colour and fresh appearance, all the while allowing Oak’s strong grain patterns to remain a feature.
Oak has a strong grain pattern, with distinctive flecks and the tone can vary from light to mid brown.
We add a rich pigment to natural Oak veneer to capture the warm red tones of Cherry Wood.
Walnut has a beautiful grain character that has more figure variation than any other wood. Its colour can vary from a light-mid chocolate brown which lightens over time.
We apply a custom pigment to natural Oak veneer that recreates the beautiful lighter brown tones of Walnut.
We apply a deep rich pigment to natural Oak veneer that captures the wonderful darker tones of Walnut.
Wengé is an at-risk species so for ethical reasons we stain natural Oak veneer using a pigment that captures the rich, red tones of this wood.
Ebony is an endangered species so for ethical reasons we use a natural veneer that is manipulated to capture Ebony’s distinctive two toned appearance.
Zebrano is a vulnerable species of wood so for ethical reasons we use natural veneers manipulated to capture Zebrano’s characteristic straw-like stripes.
This cool grey finish is achieved by manipulating real wood veneers to create a multi-tonal wood with a unique grain.
