2/2 The Mark of Beauty - Vintage materials
First broadcast: June 2015.
Reclaimed timber is enjoying a quiet popularity. This episode focuses on the old-fashioned charm it can impart to everyday life. New uses can be found for the old timber reclaimed from the dismantling of old structures. Houses built a century ago are often a source of natural timber of the highest quality otherwise unobtainable today. Old timber is prized for its beauty and rarity, and can be reincarnated into pieces of contemporary furniture.
