150 years of History.
Aspen is constructed using timber saved from the demolition of older building: part of modernisation to the infrastructure of China. In this case pine with the large tops being made from massive old doors. The age of the wood varies depending on when the building was originally constructed. Some elements can be at least 150 years old!
The sense of long history is evident in the recycled wood construction. This special feeling is characterized by visible marks, scratches and splits that are a conscious part of the style and character. Aspen has a high craft value with a contemporary chic feel. Finished with wax and a genuine patina, every piece is unique. The surface is factory treated with the pigmented shellac and then sealed with an antique wax. Or in the case of the lnez collection a white paint is applied to each product and then partially removed by hand to create the distressed paint effect.
We warrant our furniture against faulty construction and or materials, however in the case of Aspen and lnez particular attention should be paid to the inherent features such as splits, dis-colouration , nail holes, inserted timber sections and the general worn appearance that are essential part of the design and construction of this collection. Consumers should expect timber movement and a general aged appearance to varying degrees in every piece. These are not faults and in effect guarantee the authenticity of material origin.
