The Wicked Spirit

‘Matter’: Middle English: via Old French from Latin materia ‘timber, substance’, also ‘subject of discourse’.

Build beautiful furniture

from the world’s beautiful trees.

Then give back to the world.

We’ve got a real, all-consuming love for what the world can give us. The beauty of each slab we work on is unmistakeable; carved by nature, weather and time – so it’s our duty to respect that. We work on each slab by hand, picking out each one’s unique characteristics and celebrating every knot, split and ripple. We think that shows in our finished tables – we keep each one true to its roots. Quite literally.

And those trees? They need putting back into the world. In September 2017 we bought our own patch of the earth to plant them in – 19.4 acres of ancient English woodland in the Hertfordshire countryside, to be exact. Left mistreated and forgotten for decades, we’re on a mission to restore it to its former glory. Replant, regrow, revitalise.
