Where design and craftsmanship combine to form art

Live Edge Furniture

Rather than discarding the natural edge of the tree, we retain this feature of the wood and incorporate it into the design. The characteristics of each slab of live edge wood lend itself to a particular design and we believe that the process of arriving at this endpoint is as much an art as it is a craft. The result is a truly one-of-a-kind piece that will be a focal point in any setting.

Our live edge furniture is predominantly crafted from indigenous, salvaged timber from dead or fallen trees. Southern Africa hosts a diverse array of beautiful timbers and you won’t believe what we can create from a log that may have otherwise ended up as firewood.

Tim Richardson has been passionate about wood and woodwork from a young age and has developed a diverse range of skills over the years. His creativity and desire for perfection are evidenced by every piece of work that is produced in his workshop and, for him, the ultimate satisfaction is to stand back and admire something that he created from a few pieces of raw timber.
