Modern Timber Table Design

It’s not easy to find a modern timber table. We have just released our brand new Concept D table and it looks brilliant. It’s a great modern look and the black stained solid timber frame looks spectacular against the messmate which has been clear finished in a new water based lacquer.

Concept D shape Table

The table design features a 30mm thick solid top. This thick top is softened by how the underside router shape takes thickness away from the visual edge. The gentle curves of the D shape ends help with the aesthetics and therefore the name concept D was adopted.

This table can be made for you in many different sizes and stained to suit your needs.

New Cooper Sofa

Australian Made Sofa Range

I just love the new Cooper sofa we have added to our range this year.

Its a stunning compliment to the beautiful timber furniture I’ve specialised in for the past 25 years. The Cooper is locally made by a family business with over 40 years experience in quality lounge furniture.  Its internal frame has a lifetime warranty and is constructed of Australian hardwood. The cushions are all high spec for sumptuous comfort. The seats are feather wrapped Enduro foam with down. The back cushions are 70% feather and 30% down.

The sofa is prepared from start to finish by a single skilled craftsman.

The fabric is hand tailored to the sofa just like a bespoke suit. This ensures the fabric sits beautifully on the frame. We have a large range of fabric from all the main fabric houses including Warwick, Zapelle, Charles Parsons and Wortley Fabrics.

Custom made timber furniture Melbourne

Do you need some help with some custom made timber furniture for your Melbourne home?

Are you sick of seeing the same designs in every furniture showroom you visit?

I can help you.

I love custom made timber furniture still after 27 years. Its great helping people get exactly the look they want.

I recently completed this project for Gerry for his new home. He bought some detailed drawings to me and the photos show the end result.  I really like the 10mm separation between the drawer and doors inside the TV cabinet and buffet. It creates a really nice pin stripe effect highlighting the timber grains of the Victorian ash and Tasmanian oak which have been clear finished.

The attention to detail continues with the timber selection, you will notice the timber grains are continuous boards from left to right across the cabinets.

All the drawers were specified with soft close runners removing the need for handles.

The hall table was built to size to fit perfectly into the recess in the entryway of the house. It featured a shelf at the bottom and the leg dimensions were matched to the top thickness to continue the aesthetic look my client was after.

If you need any help with you next furniture project get in touch with me. I can help you create the design and style you need for your home. Contact me and draw on my years of experience and let me help you get the look your after for your home.

Thanks Mark

Timber Boardroom Tables Melbourne

This week we installed these great looking modern style Victorian Ash boardroom tables custom made to our clients requirements.

We were contact just 28 days ago by this company and they had a deadline of 30 days to have their new boardroom table installed and set up, ready for some important functions they had planned.

My team member Robert took the call and quoted the tables within 8 hours and committed to completing the project prior to their deadline.

As you can see they look terrific.

They have been made in four sections as per the design brief to create great flexibility in their boardroom and office.

We handled all logistics and on site installation.

Here is what our client had to say

“Hi Robert, Just a quick note to say thank you for all your assistance in getting these beautiful tables to us.  We really appreciate the quick turnaround time from order to delivery. A quality product and service we would be happy to recommend. Thank you.

Made in Melbourne

The vast majority of the furniture I sell is hand made in Melbourne.

Over the last few years I have meet many talented furniture makers and the young guy who made these tables is one of the best. In fact I’d say his a perfectionist. I spent a day with him a couple years ago watching him make tables. He carefully selected the boards and then used a special technique of wetting the boards with some special mixture so he could predict the approx. colours of the table boards once the oiled finish would be applied. He repeated this process many times, moving boards left and right until he was satisfied the final result would be the best it could be. When it came to making the frame, I recall him measuring corner to corner to the exact mm to ensure the base frame and legs were perfectly square. I could literally watch him for days as he pursued with passion the perfectly crafted table.

I have a handful of tables available for sale at the moment a which are one off creations, handmade and finished in a special oiled finish for a superb look.

I cant order special sizes on these they are unique tables, as displayed.

If you like any of these pictured tables they can be viewed in my showroom in Nunawading normally priced at $5000 plus these will be available for $3999.

But its first in best dressed so please call to check if any have been sold.

We have a huge selection of chairs which we can prepare to compliment these tables to make a truly unique setting for your home. Thanks Mark.2014-04-08 mkm 004 2014-04-08 mkm 006 2014-04-08 mkm 007 2014-04-08 mkm 008
