we use only the finest materials in the construction of our products to guarantee exceptional quality and flawless craftsmanship.
FSC-plantation hardwoods, marine-grade aluminium and innovative synthetic all-weather fibres are featured throughout our ranges to create the same finesse that you expect from your interior furniture pieces.
all of the wood used in our outdoor furniture sets is FSC®-certified and sustainable: we make use of both teak and eucalyptus hardwood elements and a mix thereof.
FSC® eucalyptus is a hard wood that is ethically sourced and withstands the elements.
caring for hardwood: wood is a living material, and as such minor cracks and a change of colour over time are natural features of this material.
all of our outdoor furniture sets are treated with deep-penetrating oil before leaving the manufacturer's factory.
as such, you won't need to oil your new furniture immediately - it is recommended that you clean and oil your set after 6 months of use and repeat bi-annually, using a hardwood sealing oil available from most good hardware stores
when exposed to rain, surface fibres in the timber will rise slightly and take on a rougher texture - this is completely normal. simply sand lightly with semi-fine sandpaper to re-create the smooth finish and follow with an oiling to restore colour.
for regular cleaning, you can make use of an everyday wood cleaner/ polish
storage: should you choose to store your outdoor furniture during the cooler winter months, a cool, well-ventilated shed or garage is the most suitable space to do so.
in this range: the Docklands Corner Set (wood frame), Martinique Lounge & Bistro sets (FSC mix used in legs), Oslo Sofa Set, Camden Dining Sets, Stockholm Lounge Set
teak FSC (as found in the legs of the Camden Dining Set) is a luxury timber species renowned for its strength and beauty.
the teak elements used in our range are made of genuine, plantation-grown teakwood (Tectona Grandis) which is naturally impregnated with "Chinon" to protect against rot.
the naturally occurring oil content in the wood resists water and helps keep surfaces clean.
requires little/no maintenance to withstand weathering, however, over time, the sun will bleach the original golden-brownish colour and a new silver-grey patina will appear. many connoisseurs of teakwood prefer this silver-grey patina while others prefer to keep the original colour.
to preserve the original timber colour, make use of a teak sealer oil as required.

our rope has undergone extensive testing in our in-house laboratories to simulate exposure to a range of authentic climate conditions, including those oh 'high-UV' regions such as Australia.
tested to European impact standards for weather-resistance and longevity, our rope elements require no maintenance - simply wipe with a little detergent and a clean, damp cloth.
produced in an environmentally-conscious fashion and is fully recyclable.
