At Iris Bespoke Furniture, we know that finding quality furniture, especially for a wood as uncommon as Yew is often difficult. You may decide to try looking in open showrooms or online stores but the chances are not good that they will have the exact specifications and design you have in mind. Rather than opt for low-quality Yew furniture sold in stores, it would be more efficient to select a custom-made piece to suit your exact requirements.
With Yew, we can custom-build coffee table, lounge chairs, armchairs, Georgian drawers, bedside cabinets, dining tables, armoire, bookcase, and other furniture pieces to give you that unique, luxurious feel.
Transform Your Home with Antique Yew Furniture
Using Yew to craft phenomenal pieces of furniture is not new. Yew has been the exclusive wood of choice for the elite for centuries. In the middle ages, the law decreed that only royal longbowmen could have Yew bows, and commoners had to make do with ash or elm bows. Centuries later, Yew is still the preferred option for people who love elegant and unique furniture.
Using our original Yew furniture piece, you can be expressive about your style and add elegance to your special space. We blend creative concepts with innovative aesthetics which results in a style that is exquisite and tasteful, yet very practical. Yew furniture is not as common as other types of wood so if you are unsatisfied with the few options that come with Yew furniture, ordering for custom-made Yew furniture is the way to go.
Every piece we make for you is designed to last you your lifetime, making your bespoke furniture a sustainable investment in the future. Our Yew furniture style ranges from casual, relaxed and modern, to minimalistic but it all carries the same undertone of luxury and elegance. It is will definitely make your home more comfortable, aesthetically pleasing and welcoming.
Why Yew Is the Wood of Choice for High-End Furniture
Yew is an attractive and appealing wood which when used to make furniture produces a unique piece each time. The wood has been used for making furniture for hundreds of years and it is completely different from other woods. It has beautiful patterns and characteristics that set it apart as the ideal wood for crafting quality furniture. Some of them are:
- Yew furniture is extremely durable as it resistant to decay and insect attack.
- It is an easy wood to work with which means that whatever style or form of furniture you want, it is feasible.
- It has no characteristic odour and it is also hypoallergenic.
- Its tight, fine grain and smooth texture give it a lustrous finish.
- It polishes well and is highly impervious to wear and tear.
- It has an attractive wood grain and is resistant to shock.
The Design Material of Choice for Individuals Who Love Luxury Furniture
Depending on your preference and the type of furniture you want made for you, we can use Yew together with any type of material you want such as leather, fabric, or hand-beaten metal.
There are generally three hues of Yew wood: light Yew, medium Yew and dark Yew. Light Yew is the wood’s default hue. It has a pale yellow colour, however, many shades of finish can be obtained from it. Medium Yew gives off a warm golden orange colour while dark Yew is a deeper, more vibrant shade of Yew.
You may have a design idea you want us to build or you may want us to use one of our already developed bespoke designs. Either way, we are open to working with you and using your ideas in order to design striking pieces of Yew furniture. If created using designs from our normal ranges, you can tweak the design until it is individually tailored to suit your taste. That is the beauty of choosing bespoke furniture over mass-produced pieces.
We collaborate in design with the custom furniture makers who hand paint, carve, and emboss rich designs on Yew furniture which combine form and function for a sophisticated end product.
Hand-Crafted Statement Yew Furniture Constructed By Gifted Artisans
We work with skilled carpenters and craftsmen in India who have used the same techniques passed down through generations to create a spectacular furniture set from your original design. Depending on how large the furniture is, it can be constructed in parts with warm tones of Yew and assembled at your home.
Even though Yew on its own brings a lot of beauty to our bespoke furniture, we use inlaying to add interest and highlight the furniture. Inlaying is the use of a contrasting wood to form a decorative design. Our hand-cut and crafted colourful inlay pieces are sculpted from mother of pearl, shell, glass or ethically harvested camel bone.
After constructing our Yew furniture, we treat it to many layers of lacquer and sealers to show off the woods and pattern. Thereafter, these layers are set in a resin of the colour you choose. Painted Yew furniture offers bright and beautiful colour combinations which heighten the patterns on the wood.
