Iain James range includes an expansive collection of furniture spanning four centuries, from William and Mary (1694), to the Art Deco period (1910-1939).
Their designs feature the influences from designers and makers of traditional furniture from these periods, such as Adam, Chippendale, Hepplewhite and Sheraton, diversifying into the Deco era through hints of Ruhlman.
Each model within the range continues to be polished by highly skilled craftsmen, applying time honoured finishing methods that accentuate the beauty of selected solid timbers and veneersAll of their products are finished using time honoured traditional hand polishing methods which create a fine patina and depth of colour. The furniture is bleached to help achieve a lighter, softer shade often associated with antiques, before being hand coloured, shaded, distressed and polished. The process is completed by carefully dulling the finish using 0000 wire wool and pumice powder and brush.The finish of our products may feature small knots, marks and cracks which are natural characteristics of wood.Unless otherwise instructed, the product finish exhibits antiquing and distressing techniques. These processes add splashes and scratch marks designed to enhance the final finish.
