This truly beautiful piece of Sycamore was purchased from a local country estate sawmill. In opposition the Brown Oak was from “Tree Station” in Greater Manchester. There is a lovely contrast between the wild looking and characterful, parkland grown, pale Sycamore and the rich coloured and textured grain of the urban grown Brown Oak.
I feel this design is very sympathetic to the materials used and keeps true to the woods natural form. The glass top adds an element of practicality as well as making the open side appear to disappear and float in mid air.
Im really happy with how all 3 materials flow and complement each other but still show off their individual characters. Glass, cold and strong. Brown Oak, rich and warming. Sycamore, beautiful and delicate.
