TIMBERS

We select only the most beautiful, character filled reclaimed timbers that offer exceptional durability, look and feel, while telling the rich and interesting stories of their past.  Two of our current limited edition timbers include:

Centuries Old Wine Vat French Oak

Reclaimed from large, 5 metre diameter wine vats at Victoria’s iconic Mildara winery and imported into Australia in 1913, the French Oak has aged some of Australia’s finest red and fortified wines for the better part of a century.  Imbued with gorgeous tones of dark gold, chocolate, silver and burgundy wine markings, our tables in this rare and very beautiful timber are completely unique and offer extraordinary provenance.

Telegraph Pole Ironbark

Reclaimed from outback Queensland Telegraph Poles that formed Australia’s first regional telecommunications system, the Ironbark offers magnificent tones of deep red, rich brown and burnt caramel with distinctive past life markings.  A spectacular timber, the Ironbark creates a compelling, signature table with its own special Australian story.

Other premium reclaimed timbers available include:

  • Otway Ranges Stringybark and Blackwood
