Ready For Upholstery seat and back
Beech frame, raw
This smart armchair addition to the successful Horatio family just slipped into stock too late to make it to press in our exciting new catalogue. The Horatio side chair and bar stool were founding members of our recently established RFU Core Collection. Stocked in raw beech, this competitively priced armchair allows for fully upholstered seat, back and arms. It has elegant regency style lines to the arm fronts and chair back, along with slim, tapered legs.
The armchair and rest of the Horatio family, can be supplied finished or COM, as special order, POA. Contact our sales staff for more information.
Loughton laminate side chair
Laminated seat and back
Beech frame natural
Coming end April, a new, finished version of the Loughton side chair. With a laminated (on steamed and moulded plywood) seat and back on a solid beech frame with a natural finish. This side chair is exclusive to buk from the latest Paged Collection release. It is an alternative to the original beech veneer raw option in our Contemporary Collection and looks great mixed and matched with the original all veneer version. Note: veneer seats and backs and laminate seats and backs, can be mixed on a single frame as special order.
The white man-made laminate finish on the seat and back gives rise to practical, easy care, wipe clean surfaces and lends a modern take on a fifties inspired design. A clean, curvy and simple chair with a naïve feel, that lends itself to contemporary and casual dining. The low maintenance aspect makes this an ideal chair for more educational and institutional environments also.
65mm solid Mango bark edge top
c. 1200 x 700 mm
Clear PU finish
We have had feedback from our sales team over the last year to say that customers are asking for more character and exotic wood tops and we’ve certainly seen this trend at the shows. We responded with the inclusion in our new catalogue, of a bespoke, chunky, cut to size, solid Mango wood top service. Effectively, a slice of tree trunk, ordered specifcally to the project size you want!
We’ve recently taken the decision to trial stock a chunky Mango top, again with a “natural bark” edge, in the industry standard size of 1200 x 700 mm and at 65mm thick. This has been fine sanded both sides and sealed with a clear polyurethane finish to bring out the warm colour and characterful grain of natural Mango wood.
As the wood is cut from a cross section of a whole tree trunk, no two tops will look the same, nor, have identical dimensions. The two longer table top edges comprise the Mango tree’s naturally occuring contours and will therefore, not be straight edged but flow authentically and be irregular in shape.
Triple hairpin footed legs
710mm and 400 mm long
Antique iron finish
We are proud to buy British and bring you more innovation with our evolving indoor table base collections. Try our new, heavy duty hairpin legs with some of our more interesting tops and top finishes. They look great used with our Copper or Brass wrapped tops, our solid Mango or solid Acacia tops, for a vintage or industrial look, as well as with our ash veneer range of tops. The hairpin and angular leg trend is gaining ground. Transform your tops and tables with these high quality, made in England, clean welded, steel rod legs.
They are sold individually or boxed in fours, ready for despatch. Other heights, designs and finishes are available as special order. Please ask one of our sales team how we can help with your particular requirements.
Bay Stacking armchair & square table
FSC Robinia slat seat & back / aluminium frame
Oiled / Powder coated
Mid-April will see the arrival in stock of two new, outdoor dining furniture ranges. These can be bought individually or as sets. The first range, Bay stacking armchair and Bay square table, is shown in silver above. For launch, we are offering both products in two stock colour options:
- Oiled slats / silver (matt finish) frame. RAL 9007.
- Oiled slats /graphite (matt finish) frame RAL 7021.
The pieces are high quality and on short lead-times, being made in Europe. They are both stacking pieces, portable and strong, comprising round tubular aluminium, splayed leg frames and FSC Robinia wood, alternately sized, slats on the rounded, seats, backs, armrests and square table tops. Note: Stock table size is 800 x 800mm.
The design is both nostalgic and contemporary, reminiscent of early 20th Century French parks and gardens furniture. Stocked in two neutral shades, that can be used together, there are seven special order, classic outdoor frame colours that can be ordered for customising projects, as can weathered finish slats and bespoke table sizes. Speak to our sales team for more information re. prices and MOQs.
Reef Stacking armchair & square table
FSC Robinia slat seat & back / aluminium frame
Oiled / Powder coated
Arriving in stock mid-April also, is the second of two new, outdoor dining sets. Reef square tables and Reef stacking armchairs can be bought as a set or individually. Available with natural oiled slats and silver Oiled slats / silver brushed (gloss finish) frame. RAL 9006.
The pieces are high quality and have short lead-times, being European in origin. They are portable and strong, comprising square profile, aluminium tube frames and FSC Robinia wood, in differing slat sizes, on the seats, backs, armrests and table tops.
The design is a good alternative to our Pier family but less square and more angular and can be mixed with this range for a more eclectic look. There are seven special order, classic outdoor frame colours that can be used for customising projects, and as with Pier, these can be offered with weathered finish slats.
