Downloadable PDF

Heal’s new Italian Country collection embraces the rustic, informal style found in Italian farmhouses and country villas. With nature-inspired tones and distinctive open wood grains, the range focuses on the use of high quality materials to create heirloom pieces designed to improve with age.

Key to the collection, the Tuscan Rustic Oak Table is made in Italy and fits this authentic farmhouse look perfectly. This solid statement piece has generous proportions and is designed to sit at the heart of the family home. Crafted from solid European oak, finished with a warm stain and matt lacquer, the table and coordinating bench have a timeless appeal.


Heal’s Tuscan Rustic Oak Table, from £1695; Heal’s Tuscan Rustic Oak Bench, from £795

With the revival in popularity of organic materials in the home, Heal’s Italian Country collection has been inspired by the richness of colours and textures found in nature. The collection includes a selection of Mediterranean terracotta and earthenware tableware by ABS Pottery and Da Terra, which create a relaxed dining experience and liven up any table with their decorated, patterned finishes.

Heal’s has also introduced its own range of handmade oak and ash serving boards (left, from £25). Extremely versatile, these organically shaped paddleboards are perfect for sharing dishes and offer a high quality finish that only improves with use.


Heal’s Buffalo Side Chair, £295; Heal’s Umbrian Dining Table, from £2495; with matching bench, from £895

Suited to both contemporary and traditional dining schemes, the Heal’s Buffalo Side Chair is upholstered in a rich terracotta-coloured buffalo leather and has a sleek, graceful silhouette – the perfect contrast to the expansive proportions of the Heal’s Umbrian range, crafted from solid natural oak. Made to order, each table is unique due to the wood’s different grain patterns, knots and cracks, which add to its natural charm.
