We now have our Luna key cabinets available in a stunning new timber combination: English walnut, English cherry and maple with an oiled finish.

Inside, three rails hold the specially made key rings with space at the bottom for your wallet or mobile phone. The cabinet also houses a mirror for those final checks before leaving the house.

Made using our own unique Murano circular and semi-circular veneers, the gradient has been carefully selected, starting at the core to create a stunning tonal blend.

Spotlight on Edward’s Murano Technique

Edward sees this process as a way:

‘to manipulate the grain of the wood as an artist would manipulate paint with a brush’.

Murano Collection

The Murano Collection was originally inspired by a visit to the island of Murano, where Venetian master craftsmen have been producing glassware for centuries, by floating layers of different coloured glass through one another to produce exquisite patterns.

Our Murano veneers have been developed and perfected in our workshop and are all made in-house. They have been adapted to form wavy, radial and straight designs. Each veneer uses contrasting timbers to add texture or to create a blended effect. The various patterns result in carefully matched sweeping lines and curves that engulf the entire surface of the furniture.

This collection again stems from Edward’s interest and expertise in laminating. This time his aim was to develop an organic free-flowing form reminiscent of Venetian glass. To create this effect, hundreds of thin strips of wood are cut in the workshop and reconfigured, resulting in sweeping lines and curves bringing soft and organic patterns to the angular forms.

The Murano veneers can be constructed in a wide range and combination of timbers and applied to almost any of our designs.
