What connects bespoke oak furniture? Stories from Dublin and Marbella

Bespoke oak furniture – people need the best quality and uniqueness

Many times, we have wondered what should stand out in bespoke oak furniture design. What elements or values give the table these desired features? One of the most important is the correct answer to functional or aesthetic needs. It is inseparably connected with the quality of workmanship and uniqueness. In all our projects we try to combine all these features

The word bespoke (/bəˈspoʊk/) has evolved from a verb meaning “to speak for something”

Building meaningful partnerships: Crafting custom furniture that transcends ‘client’ relationships

Our goal is also to understand the client as well as possible. In the team, we do not even like to use the “client” word. We try to build something on the principle of the partnership of people transmitting on the same waves. Only then is it possible to achieve a really satisfying end result. One such “client” was a great couple from Dublin, Ireland – Clarie and Aodan. Clarie, as a doctor of art economics, knew perfectly well what she wanted and she described very precisely her dream table, or rather a dining set including a main table, a bench and two smaller coffee tables. From the very beginning, we felt that they had a special relationship with minimalism, with the rest like us, so we were able to understand their needs perfectly.

The whole project was based on the BLACK FOREST table, where the color of the oak top and metal frame was adjusted to the needs of Clarie and Aodan. We received very specific instructions from them regarding the shade of wood or the color of the frame. Together we agreed on the final finish and started the work.

All our tables are made of unique wood. This wood often comes from truly extraordinary places and its history is written in wood grains.

First step – selection of high-quality oak wood


Each piece of furniture made by us is entirely hand-made. We do not conduct mass production so we can devote a lot of time to each project and take care of its quality. We wouldn’t have done it without our wonderful craftsmen who put all their heart into their work.

Woodworker Tad just started to make a tabletop for the bespoke set project.


The main customizations for the project we called The Bespoke Set were choosing the right color of the tabletop and the table frame. Clarie sent us a picture of wood samples from which we selected the closest stain. In order to achieve the desired effect we needed several tests – it is not enough to choose the right stain, after oiling the color of the wood also changes a little, so many tests are needed.

Yes!, after several weeks of hard but satisfying work, The Bespoke Set went straight to Clarie and Aodan’s home in Dublin, Ireland. We are very happy that he found his new home (how beautiful!) and so perfectly fitted into the minimalistic character of the interior.

VIRKERÅ: From design to delivery – Crafting a bespoke oak coffee table for Marbella

VIRKERÅ oak coffee table is one of the few bespoke oak furniture projects that has made it to Spain, to such a beautiful place as Marbella. The city is located right by the sea and the views are really breathtaking. John, who contacted us, dreamed of a handmade coffee table that would decorate its interior. Of course, we accepted the challenge and after a short conversation, we started working on the VIRKEÅ coffee table. You will also find more information about this in our previous post, today I will briefly try to show you the process we went through from design to delivery.
