30 mm Character Oak round top

800 mm diameter

30mm Character Oak Round Top

 

In response to customer demand and the various degrees of "character" wooden tops we have seen out and about, we have launched a small family of square, round and rectangular, solid oak tops.  Oak provides more grain interest than beech, so lends itself to natural and lighter stains and finishes to show this off to the best effect.   These tops are suitable for both contemporary and traditional design schemes.

The round laminated tops are formed from oak staves ranging from 50 to 100mm in width and edge glued.  They are delivered as self-assembly, each round top with a pair of 50 mm, pre-drilled support batons to prevent any possible warping.  We are very proud to say that they are produced in the UK.  Therefore, lead-times for special order sizes, shapes and thicknesses can be turned around quickly.  Please speak with our sales staff for more information regarding prices and MOQs.

30mm Character Oak Square Top

 

As with the 800mm round top, the square oak top has been introduced as a new stock top option in response to customer demand and the variously more interesting wooden tops we have seen at the shows.  The square tops can be butted up with our matching 700 x 1,200 mm tops as they are the same depth and thickness.  Oak provides more grain interest than beech so lends itself to natural and lighter stains and finishes.   This top is suited to use in both contemporary and traditional design schemes.

The square laminated top is formed from oak staves ranging from 50 to 100mm in width and edge glued.  It is delivered as self-assembly, with a pair of 50 mm, pre-drilled support batons to prevent any possible warping.  We are very proud to say that it is produced in the UK.  Therefore, lead-times for special order sizes, shapes and thicknesses can be turned around quickly.  Please speak with our sales staff for more information regarding prices and MOQs.

 

30 mm Character Oak rectangular top

1,200 x 700 mm diameter

30mm Character Oak Rectangular TopCharacter Rect Top Rails

Made to complement the square round character oak tops, this solid oak, rectangular top has been introduced as a more highly grained wood option than beech.  This rectangular top can be butted up against the matching 700 x 700 mm oak top, as the depth and thickness of both is the same.  As previously stated, oak lends itself to natural and lighter stains and finishes.   This top is suited to use in both modern and classic design schemes.

The rectangular laminated top is formed from oak staves ranging from 50 to 100mm in width and edge glued.  It is delivered as self-assembly, with a pair of 50 mm, pre-drilled support batons to prevent any possible warping.  We are very proud to say that it is produced in the UK.  Therefore, lead-times for special order sizes, shapes and thicknesses can be turned around quickly.  Please speak with our sales staff for more information regarding prices and MOQs.

 

Samson V2 large 4 leg base

Dining height

Cast iron with Black textured gloss finish

Samson V2 Large 4 Leg Base Dining

 

The Samson V2 large is extremely close in dimensions and specification to our previous 4 leg Samson large base in black dining height.   As always with the new supplier, the total height is 10mm shorter on the dining option and it comes with a square, steel, matt black fixing plate rather than a cast iron spider.  However, the most significant difference on this base is that it has been ordered with a wipe clean, textured gloss black finish.  Our previous Samson large cast iron base had a matt textured black powder coated finish.

This simple, cruciform base is also available in bar height (currently this stock is still from the old supplier, so, in the old matt finish).  Coffee height will switch to the new finish once the old stock sells through.  Other heights and finishes are available to order, POA.   Please speak to one of the sales team for MOQs, lead-times and prices.

 

Samson V2 XL 4 leg base

 Dining height

Cast iron with Black textured gloss finish

Samson V2 XL 4 Leg Base Dining

The Samson V2 XL base is very close to the old Samson XL 4 leg cruciform dining height base in dimensions and specification.   As always with the new supplier, it comes with a square, steel, matt black fixing plate rather than a cast iron spider.  As with our other V2 Samson bases, we are offering all height options in a black gloss finish.

This simple, cruciform table base is also available in bar height (currently this stock is still from the old supplier, so, in the old matt finish).  Coffee height will switch to the new finish once the old stock sells through.  Other heights and finishes are available to order, POA.   Please speak to one of the sales team for MOQs, lead-times and prices.

 

Bistro V2 small 4 leg base black outdoor finish

Dining height

Cast iron with specially formulated outdoor finish

Bistro V2 4 Leg Base Dining Height

The outdoor Bistro dining height base range has been rationalised to utilise the same ornate, cast iron column and base as the four leg indoor version.  This offers you a more consistent look if wanting to use this design both indoors and outside, as a different, outdoor formula powder coating allows the iron base to be used externally.

This new version of the four leg base will take up to an 800mm square or round top.

We shall be phasing out the old small 3 and 4 leg cast aluminium bases and simply offering the Bistro V2 4 leg base powder coated with a textured gloss black, outdoor formulated finish.  Available in bar height with outdoor finish as special order.

Norma Bar Stool Veneer Seat Steamed Beech Raw

The bar stool trending we detected pre-Christmas, still seems to be continuing.  The bar height bentwood models are perennially popular. However, the Norma bar chair is selling extremely well currently, and more stocks of this one, are on their way.

Norma is an authentic bentwood design made using the original techniques pioneered in the 19th century by Michael Thonet.  It features the classic, Belle Epoch, fan back detail in beech veneer. The Norma bar chair is made by hand and machine, using traditional methods and steamed bentwood.   The seat can be left as a smooth, wipe clean finish veneer or used with an upholstered seat pad.   There is a matching side and armchair and can be supplied without the back fan detail as Jeane Bar chair.
