Stained wood finishes

Byron & Byron use a water-based stain to enhance the graining of the wood, as it has a transparency that's not possible with any other modern staining methods.

The wood is hand dipped into the stain many times to achieve the finish, and they also use traditional French polishing methods to create classic wood finishes.


Gilt & silvered finishes

All gold, silver and gold or silver-derivative finishes are produced using real metal leaf, not coloured paint, as it's the only way to achieve a proper gold or silver colour without it being too dull or green.

The processes used are age-old methods that have been used in decorative furniture production through the ages, so each Byron & Byron pole is an investment piece.


Painted finishes

Byron & Byron has the in-house capability to offer a custom bespoke painted offer, meaning they can paint your pole in any water-based emulsion paint, including brands such as Sanderson, Farrow & Ball or Dulux.
