Our two most iconic materials are blended together to make one of our own development; the elegant, durable and timeless signature material, Bronzed Shagreen.  The process entails selecting beautiful stingray skins and casting their beaded texture in bronze and then finishing with a flame-applied patina.  Bronzed shagreen combines the rich, deep metallic allure of bronze with the myriad dimples of shagreen to make a visually rich and unique material that envelops furniture with character and flare.

In our workshop the patina is a flame-applied finish that is then finished by hand in order to achieve the desired colour and finish.


It’s durability makes for a splendid table surface.  We currently have in our collection two tables that showcase this unique material. The acclaimed Alexandria Salon Table is finished in a rich antiqued patina.  Raised on hexagonal tapered wooden legs in black lacquer and with a heavy bronze cast base, the table is strikingly architectural.

The Mighty Table is a monumental block of Bronzed Shagreen that sits on four mighty legs of reclaimed wood. The table top is finished with a deep flax gold patina that creates a mesmerizing beaded texture.  The legs can sit at the outer edges or stand inset in the centre.
