Solid, honest materials provide the foundation for all of Greta de Parry's work.  Materials are sourced as locally as possible, and everything is handmade with love in the USA.

Solid, locally-sourced hardwoods

Materials

We use woods native to the Midwest 

  • Walnut
  • Maple
  • Oak

Finishes

Walnut is finished with a hand-applied oil.

We bleach maple

 

Hand-cast, glass fiber reinforced concrete

Materials

Glass fibers are added to concrete to significantly increase its structural integrity.  Our concrete colors are created by adding pigment during the casting process.  These create a beautiful array of natural, neutral tones perfect for any environment.

  • White Marble
  • Ecru
  • Aspen
  • Charcoal

Finishes

All concrete seats are first finished with a penetrating sealer to minimize absorption from spills or friction throughout their use.  Next, they are hand-sealed with a wax to add a beautiful luster and provide an additional layer of protection from the elements.

 

Steel

Materials

We currently do not use any tube (hollow) steel in any of our products, preferring the weight and stability of solid steel.  

Finishes

  • Powder Coating
  • Industrial Clear Coat
  • Plating
    • Brushed or Satin
    • Chrome, Brass, Copper
