In the realm of furniture craftsmanship, the choice of wood is paramount. It's not just about aesthetics; it's about quality, longevity, and sustainability. At Larkwood Furniture, we understand the significance of selecting the finest materials, which is why we specialize in mindi, teak, and mahogany solid wood to craft pieces that stand the test of time.


Hardwood vs. Softwood: Understanding the Difference of Solid Woods

Hardwood and softwood are two primary categories of timber, each with its own unique characteristics and applications. Hardwood, such as oak, mindi, walnut, teak, maple, cherry, and mahogany solid timber, is renowned for its durability, density, and exquisite grain patterns. Softwood, on the other hand, like pine, cedar, birch, ash, and beech, offers versatility and ease of workability.

At Larkwood Furniture, we source our solid wood from responsibly managed plantations, ensuring that for every tree harvested, several more are planted in its place. By prioritizing sustainable forestry, we strive to minimize our environmental footprint and preserve natural resources for future generations.

Preserving The Beauty of Solid Wood Grain and Knots

One of the most captivating aspects of working with solid wood is its beauty. The intricate patterns of wood grain and the character-rich knots tell a story of the tree's journey, imbuing each piece of solid wood furniture with a unique charm and personality.

Our dedication to quality craftsmanship extends to the finishing touches of our solid timber furniture pieces. We believe in letting the natural beauty of the wood shine through, which is why we opt for natural finishes that enhance the grain and texture of the solid wood, creating a timeless appeal.

To protect and enhance the natural beauty of the wood, we use high-quality varnishes and stains that penetrate the surface, providing long-lasting protection against wear and tear while enriching the wood's color and luster.
