Timber Products Information
The timber used in the Bordeaux range is reclaimed elm. This timber was grown at North of China. All the timber used is aged over 100 years.
When the timber is reclaimed it is then bleached, repaired, polished and waxed to give the finish that you see. The timber used will have faults, cracks and splits. Timber will then be used to fill these imperfections. This is a natural occurrence of this kind of product. It is by no way a fault and is sourced with this appearance in mind.
Notting Hill, Amalfi & Benson Ranges
The Notting Hill, Amalfi and Benson ranges are made from reclaimed timber, much of this timber comes from recycled pine shipping pallets, sourced from all over the world. This gives the furniture a genuine ‘old world’ feel and a tick for being environmentally sound. Because each product is hand-crafted, no two pieces are exactly the same and therefore sizes may slightly vary.
The recycled furniture is made using the tongue and groove process with free-floating panels and dove-tail joints. The free-floating panel design allows for the natural expansion and contraction which occurs in recycled timber products. As the timber expands and contracts the gaps between the panels will open and close. Our stores can provide special waxes which can be used to fill the gaps and to nourish and enhance your reclaimed timber furniture.
Each piece of reclaimed furniture has its own characteristics and will behave differently. Nail holes, timber knots, colour variations and timber block patches are common features of recycled products. The raw and rustic features should be appreciated as part of the look and are not considered as defects or faults.
