Got a thirst for a coffee table?

Let’s face it, coffee tables will never go out of style. From an expedient place to position our cups mid-conversation (on a coaster, of course), to a perfect centrepiece in our living rooms, coffee tables are ideal for placing magazines and books on or under.

Why Choose Solid Wood Furniture?

Wood has been the material of choice for furniture all over the world due to its many attractive properties.

Each tree is an individual, a piece of nature, which after being felled, keeps its own character in its strength, structure and sensitivity to light, temperature and moisture.

Knots are not faults, but part of the character as a natural consequence of branches growing.  It contributes to making each piece of real wood furniture unique.

Product of the Month - Elegant Mahogany Hidden Home Office

Whether you work from home or regularly do office work around the home, nothing is worse than sitting at a kitchen table.

Hardly ideal! What you need is a beautiful and sturdy desk where you can also hide away and keep your work private.

If you work from home, you need to create a working space that not only offers practicality and professionalism, but somewhere you want to work.

However, creating your own dedicated working space offers so many benefits.
