The Wycombe collection
There are Wycombe designs for your dining room, kitchen, living room and hallway – even bedrooms and home offices – but every piece in the family traces its roots back to one Arts & Crafts chair.
On our journal, find out more about the collection’s inspiration, and delve into the details of the folding dining chair, spindle-back bench and timber-framed armchair.
Wycombe designs are made with oak from the Appalachian Mountains in North America. The forests here are managed for regeneration – in fact, in the last 25 years, Appalachian woodlands have increased by more than 300,000 acres.
Beauty & utility
Freshwater bulrushes have been used in furniture making for centuries because of their hardwearing properties. But, we’ve made Wycombe’s woven rush seats even more practical by using a rush paper cord coated in a spill-resistant wax.
White oak is our go-to timber because its grain is subtle but still full of interest. The organic shaping of Wycombe’s spindles and legs highlights this, while the finish – our VOC-free, linseed oil-based IsoGuard – protects without masking.
Each piece of Wycombe furniture is designed to connect you to its maker – the careful sanding that creates the smoothly sculpted oak frames, the hand-weaving that’s needed for each seat, the honed surface of every marble tabletop.
