Local Environment

All woods used in the production of our timber products are sourced from small, local timber yards. At the moment our British-made furniture will only be shipped throughout Europe, while our U.S.-made furniture will only be shipped within the Continental U.S.A., Hawaii, Alaska, Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean Islands. This is to minimise our carbon footprint and maintain our commitment to our environmental standards.  If you are outside of this shipping area, you may contact us for a shipping quote which will include a charge towards a carbon offsetting program.

If you are an individual or company interested in purchasing a stool in North America, please contact our U.S. agents Maison Blue Design. If you are outside of Europe or North America and are interested in purchasing or stocking our products, please contact us directly for further information.

 

United Kingdom/Europe

Our frames use 100% FSC European and British timber and are hand made at our workshop in Norfolk, England. We also work with local craftsmen and woodturners for our machining and turned products. We seal the wood products with an environmentally-friendly hand rubbed finish called Osmo Oil™.

Our seats are woven either with carefully selected Danish paper cord by traditional weavers in Eastern England or handmade split willow skein using white willow from Somerset, made and woven by us in our Norfolk workshop.

All of our ceramic products are made exclusively for par-avion co. by Norfolk potter Pat Southwood using Vulcan™ black clay and are glazed with silt from the Norfolk broads.

North America

Our frames use 100% FSC timber from Oregon and are made by a local craftsman in Los Angeles, California, U.S.A. He is also responsible for weaving the seats in the highest quality Danish cord using a no-nails technique.
