An easy living or work interior needs to be combined with beautiful furniture and objects that are aesthetically pleasing and practical. Well designed, superbly crafted pieces of furniture will complement the style of any room.
Our range of chairs, kitchen and bar stools, pedestals, tables and occasional chairs and couches combines the traditional art of wood bending with innovation in design and production. All our high quality products have been manufactured at our factory near Cape Town since the company's inception in 1988. Today, the founding members of the company, Charles and Shirley Mast, continue to lead a loyal staff of skilled craftsmen, many of whom have been with us from the company's early years. Our dedicated sales team is committed to service excellence and to meeting customer expectations. At Woodbender, we proudly provide high quality, individually crafted pieces of furniture that offer durability, comfort and value for money.
Our product range is constantly challenged by new specifications, fashion trends, new applications and technology, yet although the range is so dynamic, it always remains true to the proven fundamentals of all that is Woodbender. The individuality of our company and the distinctiveness of our products have put Woodbender in a class of its own.
Wood is a natural resource, and every tree will eventually die. When harvested at the right time and lovingly worked, trees are reborn into furniture that can last for generations. Our production process replaces much of the machine shaping of components with bending, thus keeping the impact on the ecology to a minimum. We source our ash hardwood from managed forests in North America where hardwoods are quintessentially green materials in abundant and self renewing supply (nearly twice as much hardwood grows each year in the U.S. than is harvetsed). We consider it a priviledge to craft this organic material into unique pieces of furniture that will be appreciated for years to come.
Suitable timber is assessed according to its quality and grain. After careful selection, only the highest quality wood with the straightest grain is steamed and bent around iron formers. The natural grain of timber brings its own unique fingerprint to each Woodbender piece. Every item in our range has been individually handcrafted to produce a lasting item of furniture that is as individual in character as the tree from which it originated.
it is with pride that we welcome you to the world of Woodbender.....
