Sustainable and ecofriendly from inception to completion.

There is a lot of time spent on discussions, design and sourcing of materials but often that is where it stops, be it a house design or furniture piece.

Why go to the trouble of sourcing FSC certified timbers or reclaimed timber to then apply or specify a synthetic/water-based product?

Natural here meaning based on renewable raw materials, less process and a full ingredient disclosure.

The Livos natural oils are becoming increasingly popular with furniture makers, joiners and wood turners/hobbyists alike. The oils provide a beautiful, natural lustre to any surface, whether timber, veneer or ply.
