It’s hard not to be blown away by the incredible Strasbourg Collection. Totally exclusive to Chiltern Oak Furniture, Strasbourg is a classic shabby chic collection with a twist. It’s 100% handmade and lovingly handcrafted, in fact, no machines have been used during any stage of the process. The sumptuous painted frame is made from Bayur hardwood whilst the top surfaces are lovingly crafted from Mindi Wood. Whilst Mindi Wood is relatively uncommon in the furniture world, it has some exceptional qualities that ensure the Strasbourg Collection is unrivalled in terms of character and detail. The density of the wood is similar to that of red oak, however Mindi is very different in the sense that it features a straight, close grain texture that’s almost knot-free. The brass effect shell handles are a perfect match to the Mindi wood top surface which really brings each item to life. Shell handles are incredibly popular right now, so you’re guaranteed to be bang on trend with Strasbourg in your home. The antique white paint used is a water-based solution which is exceptionally eco-friendly and whilst on this theme, Strasbourg is part of a ‘Trees 4 Trees’ programme that replaces trees used in the creation of the furniture, restoring the environment and improving the livelihoods of the local communities. You can even see the location of the tree plantings funded by your purchase when you receive your items. Seize the opportunity to own some incredible, environmentally friendly, totally handmade shabby chic furniture with the Strasbourg. Collection from Chiltern Oak Furniture.
