The family home, as one would imagine is full of early furniture, intricately replicated to be in-keeping with the house which has been lovingly restored.
John and Nicki have creatively made many bespoke furniture pieces for Vivianna at Treeopia, reserving logs and branches from the Ash tree during the construction process for use within the finished treehouse.
The bedside table has been created by utlising a hollow log, split into two and held together with two chunky glass shelves, held in place with oak pegs, simple and effective.
The dining table was a huge hollow tree trunk, cleaned and oiled, then wrapped together with beautiful handmade bronze straps, a chunky organic shaped glass top enables the entire trunk to be viewed.
A dressing table and be as simple as two slabs of oak and two slabs of glass, pegged together, effective and practical.
