Solid Timber Furniture
Guided by the principles of sustainability, timelessness and quality craftsmanship, Icon By Design takes pride in the fact that we use solid American oak and walnut timber to craft our products – and the quality speaks for itself. So, if you’re after a makeover for your dining or living room , if your bedroom needs a fresh update, or if you want tables, seating or extra storage that stands out, we strongly suggest you choose solid timber furniture. Here’s why...
At Icon By Design, we know that nothing beats the warmth, richness and sheer beauty of natural wood. Unlike veneers and chipboard that bend and bow as the years wear on, solid timber gets better with time. The bulk of our furniture is built using solid wood. If veneered furniture gets damaged, it usually can't be repaired, which means it gets put out for your local Council clean up since it doesn’t last very long. Solid timber, on the other hand, is naturally hard wearing, which makes it more cost effective and sustainable in the long run. The typical life of a solid wood item is ten to fifteen times longer than that of a veneered wood item. The manufacture of solid wood furniture is also very clean and a sustainable process.
We do use engineered woods where the design requires it. An example is our Jonas range. We have used engineered woods these bookshelves because their simple open construction needs the stability that engineered wood provides. All our other products are made from solid American oak or walnut.
When you buy an Icon By Design product, every knot in the wood tells a story; every piece is designed to convey its inherent simplicity and strength; every item speaks of integrity, timeless design and refined elegance. What’s more, we used sustainably sourced solid timber so that your furniture has minimal impact on the environment.
Solid timber lends itself beautifully to the design and creation of our furniture – whether it’s the Jolanda bed made from American oak in your bedroom, a stunning walnut Magnus dining table in your open plan living, the Plank armchair in your lounge or a set of Jensen barstools around your kitchen island. Let us make your house a home with solid timber furniture that’s your forever furniture.
