mark tuckey table top project

The Team at Mark Tuckey make some of the best locally made timber furniture, I like that its simple and honest.

They asked myself and some other cool creatives to create our ultimate festive table.

I of course added my signature relaxed but colourful style to their painted rail dining table

2700 x 920 x 750mm h
finish: oil with steel rail powder coated white

Timber and pops of colour is pretty much my favourite way to decorate!
