In light of consultation with our clients, this subtle round solid Ash & Wenge table was inspired by research into a historic design from the Victoria & Albert Museum. In this piece, the harmonious symmetry of the table’s sculptural form is subtly emphasised by combining the lightness of Ash with the depth of Wenge woods in strategic, echoing details.
The design process was driven by a creative compromise between elegance and durability, exactly the type of challenge which we relish!
We used solid Ash from our own sustainable stocks, hand machining the table top by hand. After gluing up the pedestal, we put it through a 5 axis machining process to achieve the perfect roundness the design demanded.
To create a sculptural piece with definition, we focussed on strategic detailing and increased the colour contrast: the already white Ash has been stained white, whilst the dark Wenge is stained ebony. The piece is then finished with a high gloss to ensure it weathers the varied rigours of daily family use.
Should you be interested in a variation on this, do not hesitate to get in touch with us. This piece is sold through our SHOP.

Ancient Yew by its very nature is an extraordinarily slow growing, multi stemmed species which creates an abundance of knots and stunning natural fissures, voids and cracks between stems. Not to mention the amazing grain figuring and colouring the yew is famed for.
Blanketing the wood in its raw form in a translucent epoxy resin enhances its beauty and creates a feature of its natural elegance. This is also an extremely effective method of protection, ensuring a waterproof and water-resistant finish which is both durable and hygienic in a bathroom environment.
The live edged, single slab countertop has mortice and tennon jointed end caps, a technique used to stabilise the piece providing a sense of uniformity to this extravagant and opulent design.
Glossy copper and bronze filings added a depth and twinkle to the epoxy detailing, merging with the diverse colours of the Ancient Yew to accentuate the elegance of the countertop and meld with the colour palette of our client’s statement bathroom.
