Oak, because it’ll look more than good in your home. You can expect the odd knot here and the odd change in wood grain there – which means no two pieces will ever look quite the same – but overall, it’s a well-balanced timber.
The oak is protected with IsoGuard®, our timber treatment oil. Think of it as a defence barrier, but one that you’d never know was there. IsoGuard® comes in a few finishes; this one’s Seasoned Oak and it gives Suffolk a subtle, silvered colour – like naturally weathered timber.
Comfort and proportions
Most of us prefer to sit slightly reclined (it’s why many people swing back on their seats) so Suffolk has a backrest that does just that. And though it’s not high, it’ll sit comfortably around your spine because of the curve in the timber. There’s a leg-hugging dip in the seat too, as well as a matching cushion available for when you want more softness.
It’s the little things that make a difference to how polished Suffolk feels. Like the proportional overhang on the seat, the legs that taper into the backrest, and the balanced size of the balls in its back: neither too large or too small (they sit proud, but you’re not likely to feel them when you sit down).

Taking care of Suffolk

Just so you know
Natural timber will always want to move. It’s going to expand and shrink as the temperature and humidity in your home changes, but there are specialist joinery techniques that can help to counteract the movement. And that’s exactly what we do, so although you might see a little movement in the timber over the seasons, it won’t change drastically.
