Materials

I feel it is our responsibility to make the valuable resources we use go as for as possible.

I enjoy designing my furniture with indigenous and sustainable materials in mind.

Sometimes the added cost of native timbers has to be a consideration so I will look further afield but will make sure it from responsible and FSC registered suppliers.

I am also a huge fan of veneer work and laminations as truly amazing effects can be created without the wastage inherent in using solid wood.
