The NaturalA streamlined, sturdy, lightweight table to suit places of any size


An elegant, contemporary table handmade in Melbourne from Australian hardwood, ideal for living spaces of all sizes and available in a range of locally-sourced timbers and finishes.

What’s so special about The Natural? Notes on its design.

I wanted to combine all the best bits of furniture making into one design.

Then tailor that design into sizes for individual spaces. The result has become The Natural table. I’ve jokingly referred to it as the kind of table that reminds you of Robert Redford in his mid career: handsome, classic, blonde. I drew from some aspects of Danish design and tried to lead the conversation into a modern Australian landscape.

The fact is that most people don’t live in giant New York style loft apartments.

There is a fantastic move towards vibrant, medium-density living and I have tried to keep this in mind whilst developing the design. People have responded to the warmth of the table, and having seen it in a range of settings, this seems to travel with The Natural.

These are not tables by the acre.

I know some brilliant makers of giant furniture but I have specifically tried to do something different. The Natural is functional in both its weight and finish.  I’ve also been conscious to keep the price in line with normal life.

It’s light on its feet.

People love the angled legs and how they seem to meet the floor so gently.

Stylish as it is, it’s not a show pony.

I’ve kept the height of the rails on The Natural as minimal as possible from an engineering point of view. Because let’s face it, people need to cross their legs comfortably under a table.

I think the way we use our homes and spaces has changed.

So the table has become very much a multi functioning platform for all of life’s day to day activity.  The Natural has responded to this.  The Super Natural with its thicker top has taken it one step further.

People seem to enjoy living around these tables as much as I enjoy making them.

I hope you will, too.
