Black Ash furniture

  iqs 11:42 28 Apr 2008


I am after some new bedroom furniture,ie a wardrobe.But all the wardrobes I have seen are either Birch/Beech or White.
I know I'm stuck in the 80s,but where could I buy black ash furniture??.

Get a tin of black satin finish and a brush. Works every time.

Your local Paper or Auction Room is the answer

"Time to move on,black ash went out of fashion years ago"

Fashions return too. Perhaps iqs is ahead of his/her time?

all and thanks for your help..

I just love black ash.To me it defines the wonderful 80s.

I have been repairing my current black ash wardrobe for the past 8 years.It is 20 years old at least.

I thought about buying an unfinished one and paint or stain.But it wont look right.

I know IKEA sell balck/brown range of furniture,but I worked for IKEA for a number of years.It was bad enough working with their furniture,but to have an home furnished with it,no thanks..

I think my quest continues.
Once again thanks for your help.

ps,yes I am ahead of my time... ;-)

Don't know your whereabouts but you could have a look here click here. As has been mentioned it's a bit "old fashioned" but we bought a black ash dining room set from here a lot of years ago and it's still going strong, albeit been stripped and colorwashed since.
