This Timber is about as Green as you can get
Working with timber felled under strict controls and proudly sporting sustainability certifications, P.G.T. factories assure an attention to detail and quality of craftsmanship that has made this P.G.T. one of Furniture by Design's most trusted partners. Crafted from rustic reclaimed materials, the Woodenforge Collection was inspired by pioneering times when the first railway tracks were being laid across the world, forging an alliance between the strong, sleek metal rails and the mighty timber sleepers.
Most of P.G.T.'s wood is sourced from larch, pine, fir and assorted semi hardwoods reclaimed from discarded packing crates, pallets and dismantled buildings. After the wood has been collected and sorted, all nails and debris is removed by hand.
The recycled wood is kiln dried to exacting specifications, the off-cut timber being used to fuel the kilns and boilers. Strict control of moisture content ensures there will be no warping or splitting. Each product is assembled by hand and finely sanded. Original nail holes and imperfections are retained to enhance the character of the wood.
By using traditional joinery techniques we assure longevity. Hand brushing technique create a unique patina, colour and feeling of warmth. Some finishes take up to a year to research, test and perfect. The result is furniture which will add character and style to any home.
The label provides customers with complete peace of mind.

Dust with a clean, damp, lint free cloth
Frequent dusting will remove abrasive build up, which can damage the finish over time
Do not use a very wet cloth or allow liquid to contact with the veneers for a long period of time as this can permanently damage the surface. Wipe up spills immediately
Do not use any abrasive cleaner or harsh detergent as this can damage the surface of the furniture
Spray polishes are best avoided as they contain silicones which may spoil the furniture's surface when building up over time
Make sure all surfaces are protected from heat and liquids by mats and coasters
Ensure that a mat or pad is placed under paper when you are writing on the furniture surface
Do not place rubber or plastic materials on the wood finish as chemicals which may react with the finish if left in contact for an extended period of time
Our furniture will endure most temperatures in the home but it is best to avoid placing furniture next to heat sources such as radiators or fires. Be particularly careful with solid wood as the lack of humidity caused by home heating can cause damage such as warping, cracking or splitting
Excessive exposure to sunlight can cause fading of your furniture
