The reclaimed Welsh slate we use for our table tops is widely recognised for its beauty and durability. Over 70 million years old, it brings a special character and presence to both modern and contemporary settings. It’s also extremely tactile – perfectly smooth and cool to the touch.
But slate is practical too: stain proof and virtually impervious to liquids, slate can retain its appearance almost indefinitely, even when exposed to direct sunlight or extremes of temperature. And if it does become scuffed or marked, the natural lustre of slate can be restored by simply wiping it over with olive oil.
To all the inherent benefits of slate, at Slate Furniture Works we add another dimension. We source and reclaim all the materials ourselves from vintage snooker and billiard tables that have reached the end of their playing days. As a result, every piece we create has a history and provenance all of its own – one that you will be able to share with family, friends and visitors to your home.
