Here at The Edinburgh Table Company, each item is a handmade bespoke piece made to order by skilled table makers. Our tables and benches come in a variety of styles using reclaimed and sustainable Scottish timbers.
The Edinburgh Table Company brand has been under new ownership (by Stirling Design Ltd) since mid-November 2018 when we moved operations from Galashiels to our present workshop in Selkirk. Our workshop was originally a dairy and then a mill and we build and finish our furniture all under one roof. The new team of table makers have built upon the original designs to make significant improvements to the build quality and finish of our products. You are welcome to view tables in person at our workshop but it's best to call or email first to make an appointment so we can make the most of your visit. We are an independent company with no affiliations to any other table companies. We are a member of the British Furniture Manufacturers trade association and adhere to its Code of Practice.
Our tables have character and are built to the highest quality and this is reflected in our prices. We believe using reclaimed wood is not an excuse for poor workmanship, we build only a small number of tables in a week with each table being built from start to finish by the same maker to our exacting standards. Each piece of wood has its own character be it original dents and scratches, missing knots, minor splits and discolouration but are finished to a glass smooth surface.
Using old wood is a challenge but is very important to us. Not only is it totally unique and full of character but it is a much more ethical choice. We like to make sure that we look after the environment so as well as our reclaimed timber for our table tops our other wood for our table bases is sourced from sustainable forests in the EU. We make use of every off-cut that we can and we also have a long queue of friends and family looking for firewood! We only use environmentally friendly water based paints with no harmful chemicals. This is far nicer for us as manufacturers but also means it is very safe for you as our customer. Our finishes are pet safe and child safe as well as being good for the planet.
