Frames are made from hand selected hardwoods including beech and poplar. Panels are cut from veneered boards for stability. This combination offers an excellent, strong, smooth and stable base for our multi-layered paint finishes, however, remember that wood is a live material and may react to the effects of excessive temperature, moisture or sunlight.


Our furniture follows time proved construction methods. All frames are formed with mortice & tenon joints that are well glued and are extremely strong and light. Drawers are assembled with dovetail joints on traditional guides. The hardware has been carefully selected for its aesthetic sympathy, durability and efficiency.

Paint Finishes

Our furniture is painted with non toxic water based paints and sealed with a protective lacquer. Refer to page 40 for our standard colour range, but as colours have an evolving nature, ask to see our latest additions. A special colour and finish service is available and we will give you a quotation based on your specification.

Visitor beds come as a metal frame (which can be raised to 18”) with a sprung slatted base and hand made mattress. These fit under our single beds or alternatively in a Trundle box on castors.

Chairs & Stools

Prices include upholstery in customer’s choice of fabric but not the cost of the fabric. All upholstery fabrics must comply with the current fire retardancy regulations.

All dimensions are approximate and in centimetres. Every effort has been made to reproduce Leporello’s range accurately, however due to the nature of production, the furniture may vary slightly in small details. We reserve the right to modify our designs without notification.
