The Real Wood Fur­ni­ture Company


Made in Eng­land with pride & passion…

The Real Wood Fur­ni­ture Com­pa­ny has been mak­ing beau­ti­ful fur­ni­ture from sol­id British hard woods since 1989 and has built a nation­wide rep­u­ta­tion for design, qual­i­ty and cus­tomer service.

Our pieces range from the tra­di­tion­al to the con­tem­po­rary, fea­tur­ing the best sus­tain­ably sourced home grown tim­bers. We invite you to explore our web­site, watch our film, and if you can… to vis­it our won­der­ful show­rooms out­side Chip­ping Nor­ton. Here we dis­play exam­ples of almost every­thing we make. See… touch… and be inspired…

After 20 years of suc­cess­ful and enjoy­able trad­ing in Wood­stock, The Real Wood Fur­ni­ture Com­pa­ny has relo­cat­ed to larg­er show­rooms in a beau­ti­ful­ly restored for­mer Coach­ing Inn, one mile North East of Chip­ping Nor­ton town centre.

We have under­tak­en a lengthy and thor­ough restora­tion of our beau­ti­ful build­ing which was built in 1704. The Inn has been through many changes, and has seen numer­ous uses over the years…

At one time the build­ing was split into three sep­a­rate cot­tages, but then sub­se­quent­ly con­vert­ed back to one large res­i­dence. Work was under­tak­en to turn it into a nurs­ing home in the mid 20th cen­tu­ry which involved the cre­ation of a myr­i­ad of small rooms. The nurs­ing home nev­er opened but the small rooms remained. In lat­ter years the build­ing has been used res­i­den­tial­ly and par­tial­ly in con­nec­tion with a ken­nels and cat­tery busi­ness which was main­ly run from var­i­ous out­build­ings on the site. We hope we have achieved a sym­pa­thet­ic and sen­si­tive restora­tion of the build­ing, which is wor­thy of a vis­it in its own right!

The con­tem­po­rary sits along side the tra­di­tion­al in spaces fea­tur­ing exposed stone and brick, and lime plas­ter walls, with tim­ber and stone floors, stun­ning arch­ways and exposed roof timers, accent light­ing and deli­cious scents. Take a look at our restora­tion gallery to see how we have trans­formed the build­ing. New designs have been added to our unique col­lec­tion of hand craft­ed Eng­lish oak, burr oak, and ash coun­try fur­ni­ture with elm, wal­nut, forged steel and glass added to the mix of mate­ri­als that we work with.

Our aim is to offer you a relaxed and enjoy­able expe­ri­ence. We encour­age you to wan­der through our var­i­ous rooms at your leisure, to see, to touch, to seek inspi­ra­tion, and to ful­ly appre­ci­ate the beau­ty and crafts­man­ship of our work. If you need help and advice, Chris or a mem­ber of the team will be hap­py to assist.
