Timothy Oulton offers a wide array of metal finishes, each bringing a different mood and style to your interior. From the raw, industrial look of Spitfire to the faded grandeur of Vintage Brass or the warmth and glamour of Rose Gold, our high-quality metal finishes are all achieved using tried and tested methods by our master craftsmen.
Metal is generally a very durable material. Take care to prevent scratches to your metal furniture as they can be extremely difficult and sometimes impossible to remove. Many of our metal finishes, such as Aero, are purposefully created to look distressed and aged, with marks and dents added to the metal to convey a strong sense of character and history. Other finishes, such as Shiny Steel, have a very smooth appearance and may show scratches more noticeably.
This smooth and sleek finish is durable and hardwearing, adding modern, cool tones to your interior.

Spitfire is an original signature finish by Timothy Oulton, inspired by the World War II fighter plane and characterised by its multi-riveted construction and interlocking aluminium panels. A five-stage finishing process creates the impression of worn, distressed metal.

Inspired by the world of aviation, Aero is crafted from aluminium that has been put through a time-intensive hand-finishing process to distress the metal for a rustic, industrial feel. Small dents and scuffs are added for an authentically worn look, evoking a storied past of travel and adventure.

This is a brass plated finish specially created to look like solid brass that has been slightly tarnished over time. This gives the products a wonderful vintage look, conveying a sense of age and a storied past. Strong, hardwearing and non-corrosive, our Oxidised Brass finish does not require regular polishing.

Popular throughout history for its beautiful golden colour, brass gives a wonderful vintage look. Shiny Brass has a glossy shine, while Brushed Brass has a more subtle, modern look. Both are brass-plated, and therefore do not require the regular polishing required for solid brass. Strong, hardwearing and non-corrosive.

Shiny Steel and Black Steel have a high polish with an almost mirrored effect. Strong and durable, steel doesn't deteriorate with age. Due to the smooth finish, scratches may show up more easily and therefore abrasive objects and cleaning products should be avoided.
Shiny Steel features on Trunks and Zazenne. Black Steel features on Trunks.
Our Matt Black finish is powder coated for a neutral, modern style that looks great contrasted with other materials such as glass. This hardwearing finish requires minimal maintenance.
