Ebony Valentine chair

We had the pleasure of working on a really special piece of furniture for a client with a taste for something exotic.

This valentines dining chair is made from solid Gabon ebony: a black hardwood that is dense enough to sink in water. It is finely-textured and has a very smooth finish when polished, making it valuable as an ornamental wood. To have something of this size in solid ebony is quite rare and special.

Although it was quite a tricky material to work with, we really enjoyed making this amazing one off piece of furniture.

The Ebony was supplied by a company called Exotic Hardwoods in Derbyshire and was sourced sustainably with full certification.
