Materials used

Enviornmentally Sustainable Designs are applied in order to have minimal inpact on the fragile state of the global environment. Use of plantation timbers where possible and the consideration of recycled materials in conjunction with manufactured board assist in sustaining waning stocks of exotic species minimizing further deforestation.

Do you have an appreciation for period homes and furniture and are you looking for something different? When considering a custom built reproduction piece, do a Google image search on the "Biedermeyer" and "Art Deco" styles. Discover a newer and brighter look. The switch to lighter colours and fresh clean lines, suit both Contemporary and Period homes, moving away from the look of ornately decorated dark brown furniture of the Victorian and Edwardian eras.


This job was for Andrea and Peter of Caulfield in Select Grade Blackwood with period mouldings to the bench top. The brief was to create a library style panelled look, hence the choice of recessed finger grips beneath the doors as against traditional handles or knobs.
