Product Spotlight - The Tranquillity Range

Right from its introduction in 2004, the Tranquillity Oak Range has been a best seller for us, people love the look, feel and quality of this exceptional timber.

Precision joinery combined with quality Oak come together in the Tranquillity Oak Swing Seat to offer a long lasting, classic and very comfortable garden swing. Our Tranquillity Range encompasses the beauty and durability of FSC Oak and  after years of trying different sources, we now use Kiln dried FSC prime grade Oak grown in Northern Germany near the Polish border; it’s slower grown and therefore harder and more durable than Southern European and UK Oak.

When you first take delivery of a Tranquillity the wood is a warm golden colour that over time weathers to a soft silver. We use seasoned FSC Oak which has a wealth of character and means each piece of garden furniture we make with it is truly unique.

One of our Craftsmen, James Amato, had this to say about making our Tranquillity Oak Range:

“My favourite timber overall has to be oak. The slow-growing Northern European oak we use means that this very dense hardwood keeps us busy! Notorious for blunting drill-bits and being extremely hard, this is counterbalanced by the exceptional longevity of this beautiful wood. There is a great thrill in finishing an oak day bed or swing seat.  This is because the overall look of oak looks so harmonious. We know that this creation, already having taken years to grow, is now going to enjoy a lifetime of enjoyment in its new form – as a beautiful piece of outdoor furniture. Finished pieces, such as the new Knole Garden Bench (see centre photo below), can be very heavy to manoeuvre around the workshop though! We use a kiln-dried oak for most of the products (apart from pergolas, which are made from green oak), which guarantees minimal movement of the timber when placed in its final position in a customer’s garden”

We love the Tranquillity Range and so do our customers, the photos below show why.
