“The spiralling pattern is meticulously hand painted with an oxidizing solution on to tannin rich white oak. The wood is then finished with a whitened oil to subdue the painted texture and highlight the natural oak wood grain.
The combination of traditional woodwork and unique decorative process creates furniture fit for collection.” – Hamilton Holmes
