When Emma Holland (@_thelakehouse_) first got in touch with me, via Instagram, about the possibility of supplying the Ethnicraft Oval Mikado table for her new home, I was delighted. I had been following Emma & her build journey on Instagram & I loved her interior style & aesthetic. I knew that the Oval Mikado table, which is a real statement piece, would look amazing in her home & it certainly did!!
Since Emma began posting pictures of the table in her room, we have had so many enquiries about the table, that we now always keep several tables in stock.
The Oval Mikado table is made from solid oak & measures 267cm x 138cm and seats 8 - 10 people comfortably. The table is finished with a hardwax oil, which provides a certain level of protection and gives a beautiful matt finish. We would always recommend using coasters and cleaning the table with a soft cloth, water and washing-up liquid. The table can be cleaned with an Osmo Liquid Wax Cleaner and after a number of years the table can be lightly sanded and a new layer of hardwax oil applied. A table like the Mikado should last a lifetime!!
Once we saw the new Ethnicraft Outdoor collection at their showrooms in Antwerp, we knew that the Jack Lounge furniture would look stunning in Emma's garden by the lake.
When I mentioned it to Emma & showed her the photos, she loved the Jack Lounge sofa & chairs & thought that they would be perfect in the space she was creating at the firepit by the lake.
Emma has created a beautiful home which is both bright and airy but also relaxing and inviting. She achieves this through her use of natural materials, a calm, clean, colour scheme and her layering of natural textures.
One of our favourite spots in Emma's home, is the reading / relaxing nook she has created in the room off her entrance hallway.
We love the use of the oak louvre panels to create a privacy, without losing the views and we especially love her Foxtrot Chair & Footstool, which are available to order in more than 100 fabrics and leathers.

Over the last few years, we have had the pleasure of being involved in a number of Dermot Bannon's Room to Improve projects.
We first got involved when Dermot and the show's interior designer, Karina Heaslip, called to our showroom to take a look at what we had on offer and to ask us if we would like to get involved with a project which was happening on our doorstep in Tramore, Co. Waterford.
