over the last decade metal&wood has developed a distinctive handcrafted collection emphasizing the value of aftercare by blending our own oils, and working with selected artisans who have developed an intuitive use of raw materials. the core philosophy of the brand is handmade, simple and durable. we are proud to keep creating at a standard that stands out above the world of fast furniture and factory assembly. we blend our own oils according to the type of wood, the stage of finishing, the use by the client and the type of grain in the wood. we often combine the classic technique of french polishing with our custom oiling process to make the grain pop. after this we secure the finishing using oil with a higher resin compound. our finishing process is long, and often unusual to clients, but the richness in the wood always justifies it.
