James Latham recently supplied 5m3 of super prime grade Walnut to one of their customers who have used it to create some spectacular doors as well as privacy screening for an outstanding, high-specification residential property in Lancashire.
The project has seen twenty-three 2.7m high doors manufactured and installed by specialist bespoke handcrafted joinery company, Woodside Designs of Blackpool.
Eleven of the doors are handle-less, incorporating grooves for handles, plus there are also 3D-hinges, and drop-down seals as well as top-end Swiss and German ironmongery throughout.
In addition, a breath-taking, ‘living’ privacy screen has been created and framed in super prime Walnut which features lush foliage and dense greenery, invoking an instant calm and tranquil atmosphere whilst simultaneously cleansing the air of toxins.
Carl Hulme, Timber Sales Representative for James Latham Leeds, who supplied the timber commented, “This project is simply stunning. The doors look amazing and the living privacy screen makes a real statement with the abundant greenery offering a stark contrast to the clean white walls.
“The colour of super prime solid Walnut boasts a unique earthy brown hue which varies between cinnamon and chocolate and it also finishes beautifully, giving an excellent decorative appearance due to its distinctive grain, colour and pattern. This, coupled with the exceptionally high quality, bespoke workmanship on both the doors and screens has produced an outstanding interior space.”
James Latham’s range of North American hardwoods is second to none. As well as super-prime grade Walnut, Latham offers American White Oak, Cherry, Maple, Ash and Tulipwood, all available directly from stock via its eight-strong nationwide network of timber depots.
