DISTINCTIVE FURNITURE TASMANIA
Distinctive Furniture Tasmania makes one off furniture pieces in solid Tasmanian timber. Large Dining tables Boardroom tables and Bench tops are their specialty.
They will also occasionally make chairs to suit a particular table and client. This is a very specialised occupation as everything they make including chairs is handmade and they will never repeat a design, each table or chair set is unique.
Their timbers are all sourced sustainably and primarily from salvage. Some of their timbers have been saved from Forestry burns, from the after effects of bushfires and even in lakes and rivers where they have lain for many years.
They use Blackheart Sassafras and Myrtle Huon Pine, Blackwood and Tasmanian Oak.
Distinctive Furniture Tasmania specialise in highly featured timbers utilising the following effects; Tiger pattern, Burl, Figuring, Fiddleback, Birds Eye, Ghosting, Quilting and Teardrop to name just a few.
DESIGNED + MADE IN
Where do you get your inspiration?
"Our inspiration always comes from the features present in the timber. The patterns and colours in Tasmanian timbers drive our imagination onward in sometimes wild and unpredictable ways!"
What has been your favourite piece and why?
"Our most recent Blackheart Sassafras eight seater table with eight matching chairs is our all time favourite."
What is your favourite material to work with?
"Birds Eye Huon Pine closely followed by Blackheart Sassafras. Working with a piece of Huon that is over 1000 years old is an amazing experience and is a world of discovery every time."
If you were to expand your product range to something entirely different, what would it be?
"We are about to make Solid Huon Pine baths."
