The client brief was for riempie chairs with a more modern contemporary feel. Oregan pine was requested to match the existing table ( which we later replaced with a table made of the same batch of reclaimed timber).

We sourced the wood from a property in Natal. The building was being demolished and the roof beams were salvaged. The property was built in the 1930’s and when cleaned up the timber was found to be ±120 years old, meaning it was planted over 200 years ago !
