American White Oak
A hardwood species found in North America. American white oak has light-coloured sapwood and a light to dark brown heartwood. White oak is mostly straight grained with a medium to coarse texture, longer rays and beautiful swirling figure. It has large distinctive growth rings, and some medullary rays may be present.

It is an excellent timber for high-grade furniture, interior woodwork and paneling.

American White Ash
A hardwood species of ash found in North America. It has a white to yellow appearance, and is quite dense. It is a strong and straight grained timber with longer rays and swirling figure. It has a similar tone to Australian pine, but with the figure of American White Oak.

It is an excellent timber for high-grade furniture, interior woodwork and panelling.

Victorian Ash
A hardwood species native to Australia. Victorian Ash usually has a straight grain but may also produce fiddleback markings and have visible gum veins. It has a course texture. The heartwood ranges from pale pink to yellowish brown. The heartwood is often indistinguishable in colour from the softwood. Victorian Ash was used extensively during the mid century in Australian furniture pieces.

American Walnut
A hardwood species found in North America. American black walnut is a premium cabinet and furniture making timber. Availability in Australia is generally limited to the upper grades and it is therefore more expensive than other imported hardwoods.

Timber Finishes

Timber finishes
We use a hardwax oil product to finish our products. The product we use is hand-applied and is available in a matte, satin or gloss finish. In addition, we can stain your stools if required. Below are some of our common finishes. Please contact us if you would like to have our pieces produced in a different finish.

Raw finish
This finish is a two coat application using an oil/wax with a small amount of white pigment. In blonde timbers, this helps to retain the timber’s natural look, as opposed to the honeyed wet look of Satin.

Clear Satin

This finish is two coat application of a clear satin oil/wax. This finish usually deepens the look of the timber and slightly honeys it. It provides a satin-gloss appearance with a light sheen.

Limed finish
This finish is a single coat application of a white oil/wax – which when rubbed back remains in the heartwood grain making it appear white. We then apply a clear coat (satin or matte) to seal the finish.

Ebonised
This finish is a 3 coat process, usually 1-2 coats of a black dye, then sealed with a clear coat (satin or matte) oil/wax. Note in heavy use situations, rivets in jeans may scratch the surface and remove the black dye.

Leathers

We source 100% aniline hides for our furniture. We have shown a selection of these leathers to the right, but can access more on request. Contact us with your requirements.

Note:
Pure-Aniline leathers are made from the finest raw hides. The natural characteristics such as insect bites, fat wrinkles, growth marks and healed scars can still be visible, a sign of a superior natural leather with its own individuality. Pure-Aniline leathers do not have any protective coating or pigment on the surface and are therefore more susceptible to fading from sunlight exposure. Care should be taken in high-traffic areas where food and drink spillages could stain the leather.

Powder coating

Powder coating is a type of coating that is applied as a free-flowing, dry powder. The main difference between a conventional liquid paint and a powder coating is that the powder coating does not require a solvent to keep the binder and filler parts in a liquid suspension form. The coating is typically applied electrostatically and is then cured under heat to allow it to flow and form a “skin”. The powder may be a thermoplastic or a thermoset polymer. It is usually used to create a hard finish that is tougher than conventional paint.

We use a range of powder coat colours from the Dulux colour chart

Care and maintenance.

Solid timber
Clean surfaces with a damp, lint free, non abrasive cloth and then wipe dry after cleaning. For more stubborn stains use a non abrasive timber furniture cleaner. Ensure all cleaning solutions do not contain any bleaching agents, abrasives or solvents. Make sure to test on underside of product first to ensure cleaner is compatible with material. Ensure that all the cleaning solution is wiped off the surface of the chair and is not allowed to sit for any extended period of time. Where possible try to prevent any cleaning solution getting into contact with the fasteners on the underside of the chair. Light Scuff marks or scratches can be repaired using a wipe on polyxoil – contact us for further information.

Fabric Care
It is recommended to lightly vacuum fabrics with a brush attachment on a weekly basis to prevent dirt and dust build up. For best colour longevity avoid direct sunlight as prolonged UV exposure may change the colour of your fabric (please refer to your specific fabric specification for UV resistance rating). For any difficult / non water based stains it is recommended that they are removed by professional cleaners and that an annual cleaning is done.

Water based stains or light spills should be treated as soon as possible by gently wiping / dabbing with a damp cloth wrung in a mild solution of water and washing detergent. Avoid using chemical cleaners or scrubs. Allow the fabric to dry out of direct sunlight completely before use. Please follow any specific instructions provided with your item as it may vary depending on your fabric.

Leather
It is recommended to lightly wipe leather with a clean soft cloth on a weekly basis to prevent dirt and dust build up. For best longevity avoid direct sunlight as prolonged UV exposure may change the colour of your leather and do not place leather items close to heaters.

It is best to not place leather items in very hot / dry rooms as it will loose its moisture. For any difficult stains it is recommended that they are removed by professional cleaners and that an annual conditioning is done. If a professional cleaner is not available at short notice treat the stain with a diluted leather cleaning soap (please contact us for recommendations before using anything) and make sure to wipe a larger area to prevent any patchiness.

Water based stains or light spills should be treated as soon as possible by gently dabbing with a dry cloth. Avoid rubbing the surface or using chemical cleaners or scrubs. Allow the leather to dry out of direct sunlight completely before use.

Please follow any specific instructions provided with your item as it may vary depending on your leather.

Powder Coated Metal
Clean surfaces with a damp, lint free, non abrasive cloth and then wipe dry after cleaning. Ensure all cleaning solutions do not contain any bleaching agents, abrasives or solvents. Make sure to test on underside or non visible surface of the product first to ensure cleaner is compatible with material. Ensure that all the cleaning solution is wiped off the surface and is not allowed to sit for any extended period of time.

Maintenance Instructions
Check that no fasteners have become loose from freight, handling or heavy use. If there are any loose fasteners this can be identified by any part movement. Ensure any loose screws are tightened with Allen key or hex head driver. Tighten until there is a slight resistance. Please ensure that any fasteners are not overtightened.
