Working with wood
A solid piece of timber exudes a warmth and sensory feel that’s luxurious to feel and hold. It’s a raw ingredient we love to work with. Our selection of natural timber is sourced from only sustainable plantation forests. Nothing compares to the beauty of the grain and the richness and depth of colour of solid wood.
On a practical note, the timber is carefully selected and sealed in marine grade sealer and finished in marine grade clear top coat satin finish. This protects the timber when specified for an outdoor application. The solid wood you select can also be finished in a natural oil or wax.
American White Oak
White Oak is strong, hard wearing and used widely in cabinet and furniture making. One of the reasons we choose to work with this timber is due to its sustainability; it grows naturally in hardwood forests across North America. The grain is straight and it exhibits a wonderful range of tones and colours, with striking medullary rays and a medium to coarse texture that we work to a beautiful finish. See the full range >

Working with natural stone
Natural stone has a timeless beauty and quality. The textural finishes, visual characteristics and colour variation, determined randomly depending on mineral content, excites our creativity. It’s this inconsistency which makes every piece of door furniture we craft unique.
With its origin in the Apuan Mountains of Carrara in Italy, the most famous and desirable marble in the world is Calacatta. It’s the unique mix of white, grey and hues of gold flowing through the dramatic veins that makes it so popular; it was, after all, Michelangelo’s favourite stone. In our range of luxury door furniture and bathroom accessories, the durability, purity and beauty of marble has now found a more utilitarian, but no less dramatic, application. See the full range >
The austere beauty of Fontainbleau stone is rich in subtle details, the shadowy tones and delicate linear veining delivering a highly sought natural and organic finish for our range of door furniture and bathroom accessories. A hard wearing and practical stone, the fine-grained mineral texture is a result of the rock, in a molten stage, cooling too quickly for large mineral crystals to grow. We offer Fontainbleau stone in a polished finish which reflects light, or honed, delivering a sensuous, silky touch. See the full range >
