Lily Furniture – High quality furniture deserves a high quality finish

Many woodwork professionals across the UK enjoy using Osmo UK’s wood finishing products. All Osmo products are designed to enhance, maintain and prolong the beauty of wood – an ideal finish for all wooden furniture.

Gavin Kirkbride, owner of Lily handmade furniture, has dedicated his life to creating stunning hand-carved furniture. Based in North Yorkshire, Gavin’s pieces are bespoke and made in 100% solid oak. In order to ensure maximum wood protection, Gavin uses Osmo’s Polyx-Oil and Wood Wax Finish products

“I have been using Osmo Polyx-Oil and Wood Wax Finish for 10 years and have always been thrilled with the results. After spending hours crafting bespoke oak furniture for my clients, I want a high quality finish to enhance the natural characteristics of the wood. As most of the furniture I make are practical pieces, they require the highest durability in terms of water-resistance and dirt-repellent. The environmentally friendly ingredients in Osmo products provide a healthy and safe quality that not many other finishes guarantee, perfect for any children’s furniture I make. I would recommend Osmo to any woodwork professional seeking the optimal finish for their treasured creations.”

Osmo’s Polyx-Oil is suitable for the protection of all wooden flooring and furniture, providing hardwearing and durable protection. Renown for enhancing the wood’s true beauty, Polyx-Oil is available in a collection of 7 products offering a range of specialised effects and qualities. Polyx-oil is suitable for humans, animals and plants when dry due to its natural and environmentally friendly composite.

Osmo Wood Wax Finish also has a satin-matt wood finish which combines all the advantages of oils and waxes, making it resistant to water and dirt and safe for humans, plants and animals.
