FINISHES

Our team work only with authentic materials that have their own distinctive character and add a gorgeous depth and richness to our furniture.

We also invent our own finishes that take advantage of natural chemical processes to achieve patinas of rare depth and character. Wood may be oiled, brushed, limed or ebonised. Metals may be brushed, waxed, aged or polished.

In each different piece of furniture, materials and effects are combined into a single organic whole with its own distinct character.
