The furniture we create here at Indigo is not only lovingly crafted and eco-friendly, but is designed to last a lifetime. Solid oak furniture is a type of hardwood that derives from the oak tree. It is characterised by its strength and sturdiness – and looks gorgeous thanks to its rich warm colour and beautiful grain. How is our furniture made? Every piece of Indigo furniture is designed at our head office by our talented creative team, headed up by co-founder Miles. We then choose the wood – each piece of timber is air and kiln-dried for up to three years to remove moisture and prevent shrinkage and movement. Our designs are then refined until we’re completely happy with the prototype – a process which can take years! Furniture is then handcrafted in our workshop – which is home to many restored wartime machines. One of the things we love about the hand-selected timbers we source is that they each have their own individual characteristics. They then leave our workshop, having had highly skilled craftsmen work them into durable pieces of furniture which are guaranteed to keep their value. We’ve broken down the reasons why you should consider opting for solid wood furniture… 1. It’s more aesthetically pleasing Solid wood furniture not only looks beautiful, but it also brings character…
Here at Indigo, we’ve been handcrafting solid wood furniture since 1998 so it’s fair to say we know a thing or two about time honoured woodworking. Each and every piece of solid wood furniture that leaves our workshop is finished to perfection using traditional techniques and the finest timber – and our beds are no exception. Let us take you on a journey of how we craft our solid wood beds… 1.Design 2.Choosing the wood 3.Prototype 4.Build 5.Finish The Merchant’s Four Poster Oak Bed Design Every piece of Indigo furniture is designed at our head office by our talented creative team, headed up by co-founder Miles.

Our beautiful beds start life as a hand-drawn sketch before being turned into a 3D design. Choosing the wood Beautiful, characterful timbers are quite literally at the core of our handcrafted furniture – and we go the extra mile to choose the very best pieces.

A solid oak dining table adds natural character to your dining room or kitchen. Oak’s timeless charm is versatile enough to fit in with every décor scheme – and its sturdy nature is perfect for withstanding busy family life. The natural tones found in oak furniture make it easy to style but we’ve rounded up our top three favourite ways to dress up this simple but stunning piece of furniture. 1. Add a touch of greenery… Dressing your oak table with natural foliage and greenery is the easiest way to add a hint of nature to your room. For a pared-back, simple look, pick a few sprigs of interesting foliage from your garden and display in a jug. We love our Gamekeeper’s Oak Table with Drawers accessorised with a pretty houseplant. Alternatively, the Gamekeeper’s Pedestal Round Oak Table is the ideal rustic table for a small space. 2. Light it up… Add a hint of drama to an oak dining table with a candle display. Wood grains and markings are a natural feature of our hand sourced timber and look beautiful illuminated by simple pillar candles. Alternatively, go al fresco and style an outdoor table with rustic lanterns. 3. Take a seat… Your choice of seating can transform a simple table into something extra special.
