The Huon Pine Bedroom Suite

I t took me 17 years to source the pieces to complete this suite, hence one of life's highlights was seeing this exquisite huon pine bedroom suite restoration completed.

160 years of daylight has oxidised the table to the honey colour it is. Hence preserving the original patina was of paramount importance.

In 37 years this is only the second cheval mirror I have seen in huon pine. I believe there are no known precedents to a mirror of this quality. When I designed this room I intended it to be cool and airy, an ideal room for summer nights.

1. Huon Pine wardrobe circa 1870. Solid birdseye to entire front and cornice with concealed chest of drawers behind centre door. Original patina french polished in blonde shellac.

2. Extremely rare Huon pine cheval mirror circa 1870 with barley twist columns to side. French polished in blonde shellac.

1. Extremely rare museum quality Huon pine spattery work table circa 1880. Top lifts to reveal storage compartments with drawer to other end. Pristine example of finely executed Australian spattery work to top. French polished in blonde shellac.

1. Huon pine chest of 8 drawers circa 1870. Manufactured in Adelaide by Henry Ronde, Rundle Street, Adelaide. Original patina with birdseye huon to the front. French polished in blonde shellac.
