ROBERT JAMES COLLECTION finishes are created with full understanding of the material. White Oak, Walnut, and Iron are all gifts from nature. Our craftsmen honor each material with environmentally conscious finishes, artfully applied to enhance their unique organic beauty.
We painstakingly wire brush our White Oak by hand to highlight the beautiful grain. Then, all layers are hand-applied to achieve the final finish. Our goal is to achieve an organic finish that complements the natural beauty of the wood with each piece. Top coats range from a flat to a satin.
Walnut is a sensuous hardwood with a beautiful smooth texture and grain. The top coat is polished to a beautiful semi-gloss finish.
Iron and Steel
We love working with these materials. There's not much our ironsmiths can't do! Our iron and steel finishes represent organic colors and textures of natural patinas that occur over time.
