COLOUR PALETTE

We have standard range of 15 beautiful timber colours ranging from modern to traditional colours. Our painted distressed French Country finish offers 3 different colours plus we offer colour matching for our timber stains at no extra charge. In addition, we also offer each of our standard colours with a distressed and aged finish for that authentic time worn look.

Unless otherwise specified, we use a range of single-pak sealers and lacquers on all of our stained timber products and an environmentally friendly water based finish on our distressed painted pieces.

Our standard colour pallet is listed below however we do highly recommend a visit to the showroom to view our timber samples or better yet, see the colour on a piece of furniture as a computer screen can't replicate the warm luster of natural stained timber. And remember, we can always mix special colours or colour match your existing furniture if required.
