Sustainable Australian Timber Dining Settings

One of the joys of visiting Stolz Furnishers is to inspect its divine collection of dining settings featuring premium Australian timbers, including a range produced using sustainably sourced hardwoods. While the many variances in timber selection can be a complex subject, we ‘cut across the grain’ to inspect the advantages in some of these naturally exquisite timbers.


Messmate timber highly desirable in the commercial manufacturer of dining settings. Messmate is a hardwood native to Tasmania and Victoria and the tablelands of New South Wales and southern Queensland. A species that is rich and warm in detail with a moderately coarse texture. The sometimes interlocking, straight grains feature beautifully defined rings. The beauty of Australian Messmate Hardwood Timber is that no two pieces are ever the same. The gum veins and natural characteristics are seen in messmate timber are not found in any other hardwood timbers, making this product incredibly appealing.

Marri timber is renowned for its distinctive gum veins and characteristics, making it one of the world’s unique and perfect timber for creating fine, handmade furniture.

Marri’s yellow to pale brown heartwood and paler to white sapwood contrast beautifully with the dark red gum on the tree’s trunk. It has a coarse but even texture with slightly interlocked grain. The finished timber is honey-coloured with a distinctive vein structure.

Such characteristics are born from withstanding extreme weather conditions such as bushfires, severe storm and prolonged periods of drought.

The Marri timber used in dining table furniture at Stolz is ethically sourced from Australia’s largest and most reputable timber suppliers. Such suppliers are proactive in working closely with government bodies to ensure longevity and sustainability.

About Acacia (timber)

The acacia tree, a hardwood species native to Australia, is well known for its fast growth and hard density. The species grows to thirty metres tall in as little as 12 years. This rapid growth rate produces tall, straight trunks ideal for furniture production.

Acacia’s density makes it both highly durable and water-resistant. These are ideal qualities for heavily-used furniture and cabinets that frequently come into contact with water. Acacia is also naturally antibacterial, which makes it safe enough to use for preparing or serving food.

The Homestead range is lightly brushed, whitewashed and clear coated for further durability.
