Antique Stool & Retro Style Plain Wooden Stools

We make our old stools with a retro twist, these old antique style wooden stools trendily add style and interest to a bare corner. Old stools can also be used as extra seating, pretty plant stand or perhaps a quirky bedside table. We make our old style stools in character oak and other woods, mainly by hand using traditional woodworking tools, to acheive an authentic, retro appearance. Stools are useful in the bathroom too. The stools we make have a shelf at the base which is ideal for storing towels and it has a solid seat too. The contrasting texture of the oak fits beautifully well within a contemporary bathroom and makes a pleasant feature against the smoother furnishings.

Pretty Bed

Pretty bed having arch detailed bed frame, i love the simplicity of this bed as it is not too over the top girly although extremely pretty but surprisingly plain. Abowed Four Poster Bed Company  This pretty bed looks gorgous with crisp white linen bedding which compliments the grey bed frame and contrasting sparkly headboard, this pretty bed is refreshingly different to what you would expect a pretty bed to be, there are no pinks or girly colours, just pale neatral grey tones complimenting the pretty bed design.

Teddy In His Four Poster Bed

We recently put a little time aside to take some photos of a new four poster bed, made recently in our bed and furniture workshop. It was a new model, the lovely  solid oak our poster bed frame, in the flame design, with the asymmetrical  curved posts that are really stunning and so modern and unusual. Keen not to miss out on the opportunity of taking some pictures of our new four poster bed, as it turned out rather nice in the solid oak timber, the wood grain is really beautiful, the photos would come in very handy to extend our online four poster bed catalogue.  Everytime we produce a new bed that is slightly different to other beds we have made, we like to set...
