Orkney has very few trees and, in the past, islanders would comb the shores for timber washed up from shipwrecks. This wood was in great demand for fencing, fuel and, of course, for chairs.
Our driftwood chairs are made in the traditional way, using logs and wood found around Orkney’s shorelines, providing a direct and authentic link to the past.
Each driftwood chair is unique, with a richness and character all of its own.
All the driftwood we use is very carefully selected and dried to make it suitable for chair framework.
Good quality driftwood isn’t always available, but we’re always happy to add you to our waiting list while we seek out fresh shoreline discoveries!
