A Sustainable Approach

UK timber

Using only UK timber is an integral part of our ethos, and should be for everyone.

Tropical hardwood production is one of the biggest contributors to methane gas production. So whilst we sit back and think that timber is a renewable, carbon locking resource, we are wrong.

The increase of fast disposable furniture made using tropical imported woods has led to a rapid increase in the planting and felling tropical hardwoods overseas. A lot of the forests are not properly managed, as they have been planted at such a speed, that there has been little to no planning gone into the extraction process.

When these plantations are felled, the canopies and root systems are left in the soil to rot down and degrade leading to a significant production of methane.

In purchasing furniture and materials made using these hardwoods, we are only helping the industry, and encoring the production of greenhouse gases.

In purchasing and using timber grown and felled in the UK from only well managed and certified woodlands, we are helping to keep greenhouse gas emissions to a low and encourage the lock up of carbon through planting of new trees here in the UK.

Feel the warmth of our oak boards under your feet. We’ve used ours over underfloor heating in many a customers home for extra heat as the days turn colder. #oakflooring #flooring #floorsofinstagram #woodfloors #floorideas #interior #floorings
We’ve fitted the Heritage Oak flooring with a Brown Oak sliding door in the bathroom. Bathrooms are always difficult to photograph, but I think we’ve managed to get in the most important pieces here.....wood floor and wood door. #flooring #floorideas #bathroom #door #woodfloor #wood #interiordesign #interior #bathroomideas #floors

Using our English Ash cladding on this curved roof has bought the ceiling a light airy look but brings in a warm natural vibe for when you want the house a bit warmer. Mixed widths have been used with a tongue and groove profile. #cladding #wood #panels #roof #ceilingdesign #ceiling #ceilingbeams #beams #flooring #interior #architecture #architecturephotography #timber #woodforgood
