The joy of working with wood, is that it is a material that can handle wear and tear if treated correctly. A beautiful wooden surface shouldn’t look glossy or glassy. Wood is made of plant fibres and we spend a lot of time taming it, making it smooth and warm to the touch so that it feels like wood; not plastic or glass. At the same time, your wooden furniture shouldn’t pick up every grain of dirt that comes near it, and should have a decent level of protection against water or grease, it should be tolerant of daily life, without being a surface so perfect you have to worry about what you put down on it for fear of scratching it. Our furniture is intended to be used.
Because of this, we use sympathetic oils that offer hard wearing protection while keeping the wood looking like wood. We use finishes made by Osmo, derived from natural oils and waxes and are therefore kind to the wood, not coating it in a layer of plastic like some spray finishes do, but soaking into the surface and keeping out dirt, while still allowing the wood to breathe.
