Marina White Paulownia Range
The Marina range is made from solid paulownia and finished in a distressed white stain. Paulownia is a deciduous hardwood which grows extremely fast, up to 20 feet in one year when young. It is very light but strong and has a grain with a lot of character. Although relatively new to the UK market, it has been used for centuries in the far-east for making fine furniture, musical instruments and footwear! The stain and lacquer is applied by hand and allowed to dry before uneven rubbing down. A paint is then applied and the rubbing process repeated. Two further coats of progressively lighter paint are applied to build the aged character of the furniture.
