Why Slow Furniture Matters and What It Means | Image Size:
At Totem Road, we are proud of the products we bring to our customers and the processes which we adhere to.
Since inception, we have been a sustainably led business with the planet at the forefront of our decisions.
 
Buy once but buy well has long been a mantra within the business and as such, we adopt a slow furniture philosophy. Slow furniture by definition represents both a rejection of modern throwaway culture and a return to traditional craftsmanship.
 
It is a movement that represents the very best of ethical consumption, embodying circular furniture, intergenerational craft, and the timeless beauty of hand-finishing.

At Totem Road, each piece is crafted with care, designed to be passed down from generation to generation.
 
Made from solid wood with a focus on the natural beauty of timber. This slow and mindful approach is representative of our belief as a company and individuals - encouraging purposeful choices taking into consideration our wellbeing and the planet.
 
Our in house designer creates products that are not influenced by trends but have a timeless sentiment.
 
"We take a minimalist approach to our designs, offering well thought out pieces that express quality and longevity. The attention to detail is what is so unique to us - we consider the fittings, the closures - every small detail is thoughtfully designed and our hope is that your Totem Road piece is passed from one generation to the next," says Francesco.
 
"We understand that furniture is an investment and that's not something we take lightly. It's important to research a brand, pay attention to the materials used, consider your lifestyle and how that might change and how furniture can support these seasons. Our aim is to design enduring pieces that you're still going to love in five or 10 years' time."
