Rodas has been making oak garden furniture and pergolas for over 15 years.
Oak is sourced from local woodlands in Oxfordshire, the UK and France. All furniture and pergolas are individually made to order in his Oxfordshire workshops. Construction techniques include traditional mortise and tenon joints held together with hand made oak pegs, and the use of generously proportioned solid oak beams. Oak is ideal for seating, as it is warm to the touch.
Gentle curves are a key feature of Rodas's furniture. They are critical for shedding rain water, keeping seats dry and protecting the oak in the longer term. Curves also soften the look of the heavy oak beams, creating a visual impression of lightness, as well as enhancing tactility and comfort.
