Eco - friendly & Sustainable timber materials and finish options
Our SA Pine timber is FSC certified and sustainably grown and harvested. What distinguishes our Pine furniture is that is is leaps and bounds away from traditional Pine furniture in terms of our style designs and specifically the high end top quality and durable paints stains and seals we have sourced and selected to finish our range with. It is a top end product that perfectly complements and accentuates this specific timber. It elevates the look and feel of the furniture piece and makes it clearly unique from other Pine furniture available.
Saligna / Gum / Eucalyptus is a Hardwood Alien timber. It has a natural undertone which can be Pink / Orange in colour. Once again we have selected specific finishes that suit this timber well and allows us to offer a variety of options in terms of end colour. This is a good timber option as an alternative to Indigenous Oak and when finished in any one of the specific colours we offer provides a very attractive end result.
Oregon is a reclaimed timber salvaged and re-purposed to make furniture. Reclaimed Oregon is best finished with a natural finish and we recommend one of our clear Matt or satin finishes which are exceptionally durable but very subtle and natural. Lead time for Oregon pieces may be slightly longer as we need to source specific timber for specific pieces but the end result is always a beautiful and unique piece.
Blackwood is a stunning Hardwood Alien timber. If you are investing in a timeless furniture piece we recommend Blackwood. It has varying levels of Blondes and Browns per batch and is also very beautiful when finished naturally.
