Handmade, ethical wooden furniture with a story to tell

January 8 Author: admin

Handcrafted, ethical, unique hardwood homewares - Little Twig Wooden Horse

With the Christmas tree taken down and decorations packed away, our sitting rooms can sometimes look a little bare in the New Year. So this year, why not treat to yourself by adding a little interest to your décor and investing in a unique, statement piece that will see in many a new year to come.

Creating handmade, individual hardwood furniture and decorative accessories, British family-run business, Little Tree Furniture, has an incredible range of items guaranteed to delight those looking for a statement piece, as well as individuals wishing to invest in a sustainable design that will last them a lifetime and have a positive impact on our world.

With their motto ‘woodworking with a conscience’, Little Tree Furniture has something to suit everyone’s taste. From hardwearing, streamline, contemporary tables ideal for the modern family home, to upcycled ‘industrial-inspired’ seating and beautiful sideboards and dressers made from reclaimed fishing boat timbers, some of which are over 150 years old!

Although some of their homewares are investment pieces, that doesn’t mean Little Tree Furniture haven’t got items for the lower end of your budget, for example the Little Twig Wooden Horse, which I was sent to review.

Handmade by skilled master craftsmen using traditional carpentry methods, the Little Twig Wooden Horse comes in a choice of four finishes including a painted matt or painted rustic distressed finish, a dark wax dye or a natural wax finish and is an absolute bargain at £25.

Standing 36cm high and 26cm in length, the traditional look of the Little Twig Wooden Horse works well by adding a touch of ‘antique’ to the contemporary styling of my home – just beautiful!

With sustainability at their core, not only does Little Tree Furniture’s motto ’wordworking with a sarah ferguson cthru pokies conscience’ apply to the ethical sourcing of their materials, it is also an integral part of their business relationships, both in the UK and internationally.

So, if you want to treat yourself to a New Year’s gift with a conscience or you are just looking for a unique piece of furniture with a story to tell, Little Tree Furniture may well have just what you are looking for.
