At Vast Interior we are very conscious about the environment and
our choice of timbers reflect this. Recycled timbers are used where
possible and many 'found' original pieces have been
re-fashioned from old doors, carts or shipping vessels.
The Vast Interior signature dining range is also made from solid
mango wood, a plantation hardwood harvested from
"When I set up Vast I wanted a company that is
ecologically sustainable, and contributes back into the
community. Today over 90% of our product lines are products
made from recycled or renewable resources and we have set up school
sponsorship in Rajasthan... all franchisees that come on board must
be comfortable with this side of giving to
Ross Clayton, Founder and CEO.
It takes 25 years to look this good! Mango wood is a renewable
resource. The mango wood used in Vast furniture comes from mango
plantations where the trees are grown in for their fruit. So when a
mango tree reaches 20 to 30 years of age the trees no longer bear
fruit and are cut and replaced with young trees. The very best wood
from the baron trees is then reborn into handcrafted furniture -
the essence of sustainability and perfect for furniture production.
That's good for the ecology.
A close grained durable timber with the ability to thrive in
even the most arid environment. Acacia bares the scars of time . .
. i.e.windcracks, various sized knots and hairline fractures,
ensuring every piece has its own rustic grain pattern, colour and
Sheesham is a renewable timber prized for its fast
plantation growth (reaching harvest size in only 10 years).
Sheesham is valued for its stunning depth of colour, innate
strength and close grain structure.
Some one-of-a-kind pieces are made using reclaimed wood
from old buildings or large pieces of furniture. The reclaimed
pieces are used to make doors or fronts for cabinets and buffets.
Carvings, finishes, even hardware from the original piece can be
retained, adding to the appeal of the new furniture. That's
good for the planet!
We love using recycled timbers salvaged from various sources.
Including; old bridges, railway sleepers and boats which would
otherwise be discarded.
Most of this salvage timber was originally used as railway
sleepers, traditional housing or bridge construction. A hard
moisture resistant wood, teak has a course texture and a
colour which enrichens with age. Practically imperishable under
cover, teak has been known to last in temples for centuries.
Rattan is harvested from forests under strict sustainable
guidelines and as such it is a hardy fibre that can be used in
construction and tool making. With a plethora of species we only
source the highest quality for our furniture. It is so economically
important to local areas in subtropical Asia that it is second only
to timber in its value.
Fortunately, rattan furniture comes in many forms. There are
classic and modern looking furniture, elaborate or small pieces of
furniture, and almost every kind of furniture you can think of. Its
versatility and durability makes them the ideal choice for any home
