THE ORIGIN OF OUR ETHICALLY-SOURCED MATERIALS

Crafting sustainable furniture pieces that are imprinted with deep care and respect for the environment begins with ethically-sourced materials. We bring you behind the scenes to share with you how we responsibly source our materials without compromising on quality or craftsmanship to bring you timeless furniture designs. 

A BRIEF HISTORY 

Capturing the essence of luxury and longevity, our pieces are crafted from sustainably sourced solid-oak and Carrara marble. Appreciated throughout history for their timeless beauty, these materials allow us to create pieces that will stand the test time and ultimately reduce our impact on the environment by ensuring that they can become a statement piece within your home for decades to come. Did you know that Carrara marble was a favoured material for artists and architects in ancient Rome?

HONESTLY SOURCED 

We source fully sustainable European White Oak from German and Croatian forests. With all of our wood being select logged to support regeneration, biodiversity, and the protection of native fauna. This allows us to tread lightly on the environment and guarantee that our impact will support generations to come. 

CRAFTED FOR LONGEVITY

Crafting our pieces from sustainably sourced solid-oak and Carrara marble ensures both their elegant design and longevity. Our commitment to high-quality materials means that each piece will remain a cherished part of your home for years to come as opposed to ending up in landfill. With every last piece of wood being utilised in our manufacturing and as a result have some of the lowest wastage percentages in the industry. 

DESIGNING WITH PURPOSE

Guided by Founder Don Garvan’s commitment to sustainability, each piece is consciously crafted to change the way we think about and purchase furniture. Providing you with a transparent chain of custody that allows you to see the journey your piece has gone on from the forest to becoming a part of your home. We oversee every stage of the production process and regularly visit the sources of our timber to support our team in the process of delivering a sustainable journey from the forest to your home.
