We thought it would be a good idea to tell you a bit about the origins of Mac + Wood. The story of how we got into making dining tables, and other bespoke furniture from reclaimed wood, has very humble beginnings.
Our designer, Marcel Cowan, had just extended the kitchen at his family home. As a designer, Marcel has a love of Apple computers and it occurred to him that the warmth of reclaimed timber would work well if combined with the distinctive silver casing found on many Apple products (see this image of Marcel sitting at his dining table).
In Marcel’s words, the resulting table provides “a beautiful, warm, modern dining experience.” He adds that it’s great knowing Mac + Wood customers interact with their furniture “on a daily basis and that exists in the heart of the home.”
Of course since that first table was made we have expanded our product range. We also produce desks and coffee tables. It’s no good making tables or desks without something to sit on and so we expanded the range to include benches.
Everything is British built, but can be dispatched internationally. We also make items in sizes that are popular, but that can be difficult to buy on the high street.
Don’t delay ‘though. Our sale continues, offering savings of up to £500. It won’t last forever so the sooner you can get in touch the better and don’t worry, you don’t need to pay everything in advance. We request a 50% deposit when the order is made and the remaining balance is settled when the furniture has been completed and is ready for delivery four to six weeks later.
