Sustainable Materials

Longevity and sustainability run side by side and are intrinsic to most decisions Edward makes in both his personal and work life. He has always shared a deep love for the natural world, marveling at its ability to create things that continue to astound and if he’s not in the workshop he will typically be in his garden. It is through the longevity of the products we produce, the timbers we choose and the way in which we deal with our waste that we and our workshop respect the natural world. Our furniture is designed and crafted to a level which will see it far surpass our lifetime and be looked upon and enjoyed as antiques by future generations. When it comes to wood selection Edward will always use sustainably sourced FSC timbers and actively deter the use of tropical woods.

Wood

Whether in solid form or veneer, wood is an intriguing natural material, with each species of tree having its own unique quality. We have a good reputation with some of the best timber yards and veneer suppliers in Britain and select only the very best sustainably sourced timber for our projects. Occasionally, when the project commands it, we will buy an entire tree to make sure the colour and characteristics of the wood matches throughout the project, whilst ensuring the use of sustainably sourced FSC timbers.

The shear amount of choice is vast, here you will see many of the wood samples available to you.

Whilst we work predominantly in wood this is by no means exclusive. We have experience of working with a diverse range of materials, as well as working alongside craftsman who excel in other materials who share our uncompromising standards and commitment to quality.

Metal

Some of the best furniture often involves getting bespoke parts fabricated in metal, be it stainless steel, aluminium, silver, brass or chrome plating. Whether it’s a bespoke handle, decorative inlay, silver leafing or a custom-made hinge, we will work with trusted and experience metalworkers to produce an exceptional product.

Glass & Mirror

Whether your piece of furniture requires clear, textured, coloured or decorative glass we work with two of the best glass suppliers in the south of England and can offer a mind-blowing selection of glass and mirror.

Leather, Fabric & Flock

Often a piece of furniture requires the addition of a softer material, whether it’s a dining chair, leather panelled desk or a flock lined jewellery box. We use a highly skilled local upholster and can provide literally thousands of fabric swatches for you to choose from.
