Old Charm - Lancaster Dining
Every piece of furniture is made from the finest selection of natural timber, the character of which shows variation of grain adding to the pieces individual nature and appearance. We delight in the small knots, grain and natural colour variations which are deliberately retained to enhance the products look and feel. The wear and tear with the passage of time simply mellows and improves the furniture, adding further character and appeal.
The design inspiration for Old Charm comes from the Tudor and Elizabethan era - a golden age in Englands history where cabinet-making skills and craftsmanship came to the fore. Today we still use traditional cabinetry techniques such as dovetailing and mortice and tenon joints for added strength. Once crafted our pieces are then hand-sanded, finished and antiqued to give the authentic look. Style-wise many influences from Europe and the Renaissance are evident featuring beautifully crafted motifs, turnings and carvings from that period.
