Although we now send our products to customers all over the world we remain very much a family firm, with just one showroom and a large warehouse.
All of our furniture is carefully handmade by experienced craftsmen using the finest natural materials, all sourced from controlled and sustainable plantations.
Most of our furniture is made from Mango, a fruitwood with very interesting grain and great variety of figure and colour. It is a strong dense hardwood and comes from sustainably grown fruit plantations.
The Mango wood comes from plantations in Northern India, where we have an extremely talented team of over 20 craftsmen.
Our roots go back nearly 25 years to when we began making simple home accessories in MDF and then handpainting them to sell at craft and charity fairs. So many people asked where we got our items from, as they were interested in doing the painting for themselves, that we realised there was a whole new market selling some pieces as ‘ready to paint’.
It was not long before interior magazines picked up on this and started requesting items that they could then get their set decorators and stylists to paint, based on whichever colours suited the articles they were working on. Scumble Goosie started to become a regular name on the pages and to this day we are fortunate in receiving a lot of press coverage!
We still sell our furniture raw or painted, but now that we work almost exclusively in solid wood an increasing number of our customers buy our products and keep them in their natural state.
