If you take the time to admire you will notice that each product is unique using many pieces of European Beechwood. Based on the nature of natural wood inconsistencies in grain, joins, colour, texture and shape deserve appreciation like strokes on a painting or sculpture.

It is important to note that any stress marks in the timber from the production process will not exacerbate over time. Stresses caused in the bending and joining process are what make these items so impressive. This can be more prevalent in the painted options as the paint tends to highlight these 'perfect imperfections'

Just like us no two are the same. Enjoy.
