Hardwoods come from deciduous or broad-leafed trees. They are generally slow growing which tends to make them harder and more expensive. They are highly prized because of the beautiful colour and natural structure of the wood grain, which comes to life once varnished and polished.
We only purchase hardwood from suppliers registered with The Forestry Stewardship Council (FSC). This system allows consumers to identify, purchase and use wood, paper and other forest products produced from well-managed forests and/or recycled materials.
What can you do with hard wood?
Hard wood has been used to make cabinets and furniture for many years thanks to its durable nature. It’s strong and ages well, in fact some would say hard wood pieces get better with time.
Why choose hard wood?
Hardwoods are tough and beautiful. You only have to look at antiques passed on today to see the alluring and enduring quality of such a beautiful material. It will come as no surprise then to find that Colinton Furniture put hardwoods like walnut and oak to a variety of uses.
