Nizwa Block Table
The Nizwa family of furniture is inspired by the rounded castellations of the Nizwa Fort in Oman and the ombré colour effect caused by the sunlight falling across them.
The Italian maple veneers are dyed immediately after being cut from the tree when still ‘wet’ resulting in deeper, richer colours. The ombré is created by hand-shading the veneer, a technique mastered by our craftspeople in Muscat.
The elegant pattern is meticulously constructed by hand using the ancient technique of marquetry, each door containing one hundred and eight individual elements of solid brass, copper or nickel and one hundred and eighteen maple veneer “petals”.
The Nizwa Cabinet is available as a two-door, three-door or four-door, as a 2x2 door and as a chest of three soft-close drawers. Cabinets include adjustable shelves, drawers and cutlery drawers, dependant on size and specifications. The collection also includes two coffee tables, one on four legs and one on a brass, nickel or copper block base.
Made to Measure
We are always happy to produce pieces to client specifications and can make changes to height, depth, width and internal composition on most collections. Colour variations can be developed on request and we can even create entirely bespoke furniture and homewares. Please contact the development team for further information and pricing.
Production Lead Times
Bethan Gray Design collections are handmade by master craftsmen, so please allow a six-week lead time for pieces from the collection and eight weeks for bespoke requests.
Bethan Gray Design collections are made using certified and responsibly sourced materials. If you have a specific requirement such as testing for flame retardancy or FSC timber certification, please do not hesitate to get in touch and these can be arranged on request.
We deliver to Europe and North America from our London hub, while deliveries to Asia and the Gulf region are shipped directly from our workshop in Muscat, Oman. (Collection can also be arranged from both locations – please contact our fulfilment team for details.)
Each piece will be individually packaged, and our trusted logistic partners offer a superb service. On arrival, you can choose curbside delivery or a white glove service which includes installation in the room of choice and the removal of crates and other packaging. Shipping times vary according to location, but pieces can be air freighted more quickly for time sensitive projects.
Bethan Gray Design collections are handcrafted using the highest quality materials with naturally occurring variations making each piece unique.
Grain variation is an inherent characteristic of wood and its colour will change over time. Likewise, natural veneers and solid metal finishes age beautifully, creating a unique patina that is one of the joys of these natural finishes.
Wipe clean with a damp cloth, avoiding detergent, polish or waxed-based cleaning products. In the event of a spillage, use a clean, dry cloth rather than anything abrasive.
The cabinetry collection features untreated solid brass feet and rails, which will naturally fade to a matt patina. Should you wish to maintain a more luminous finish, we recommend polishing brass elements with ‘Brasso’.
