My customer was looking for a large coffee table, 150cm long x 100cm wide x 45cm high to fit between two sofas in their large Lounge and they hadn’t been able to find one big enough which they liked, so they took the decision to investigate getting one made. They weren’t too sure about the style they were looking for but they both liked real wood and in particular Oak and they wanted the table to suit the spacious room which had great natural light and was finished in pale pastel colours.

Having discussed a few ideas and with cost in mind, I suggested that they might consider having a table made from Red Pine which could be finished with a translucent ‘paint wash’ to highlight the grain of the wood and combine this with a solid White Oak top which would provide a lovely contrast. A light grey was then chosen for the ‘paint wash’ and this works really well with their decor.
