Inspired by traditional 19th Century design, this elegant range of living room furniture is made from Mindi wood, a tropical hardwood, and veneers of Pippy oak, which is characterised by decorative clusters of small knots. The result, when stained and polished, is a rich figured pattern not normally achieved with other types of wood. The look is further enhanced with the addition of antiqued brass door handles and woven natural cane shelves.
The range is pretty extensive, whether you want a single statement furniture piece or a coordinated set.
