THE MIGHTY OAK

In celebration of Oak, here’s a selection of products and projects that feature this glorious timber.

A Celebration of Walnut & Oak: Svelto range by ercol

offSET Shed House in Gisborne, by Irving Smith Jack Architects, demonstrates New Zealand’s affinity with coastal living and how the tradition of the bach is still alive. Words by Tess Ritchie.

Mr & Mrs White

The husband and wife duo making honest, handmade products that hail natural beauty and a love of raw materials.
