We had the pleasure of working on a really special piece of furniture for a client with a taste for something exotic.
valentines dining chair is made from solid Gabon ebony: a black
hardwood that is dense enough to sink in water. It is finely-textured
and has a very smooth finish when polished, making it valuable as an
ornamental wood. To have something of this size in solid ebony is quite
rare and special.
Although it was quite a tricky material to work with, we really enjoyed making this amazing one off piece of furniture.
The Ebony was supplied by a company called Exotic Hardwoods in Derbyshire and was sourced sustainably with full certification. www.exotichardwoodsukltd.com
