Metal Finishes

From appliances and accessories to furniture and light fixtures, metal can be found anywhere in your home. Mixing metals with stones, wood or leather can add versatility and style to any room. Those who favour more contemporary designs should use stainless steels, whilst those who want to create a truly vintage space should opt for chrome fixtures or polished copper.

For Tuscan and country home styles, brass is a classic choice. Ultimately the finish you choose should fit in well with the style you’re trying to emulate.

Wood - Reclaimed Teak

Reclaimed teak is an exceptionally durable, weathered material so teak furniture tends to last a lifetime. Teak wood is notably hard-wearing and is full of rich natural oils which makes it resistant to termites and pests. It is weatherproof even in exposed locations and is sustainable because it is recycled from old wooden structures.

Teak is in abundance these days because new houses are built from metal to protect against earthquake damage. Hence with a plentiful supply of high-quality wood, we can recycle teak into beautiful rustic furniture with timeless appeal.
