About Wineoak Interiors
1) Introduce your company:
All of our products are made from a unique material: the reclaimed staves of French oak wine barrels. These are sourced from vineyards in the Western Cape region of South Africa, and carry with them the story of their manufacture in Europe by master coopers, several years spent maturing fine wines in South Africa, and ultimately their disassembly and rebirth as unique and timeless pieces of furniture.
WIneoak works with a team of skilled craftsmen in Stellenbosch to harness the curves of the staves and the traces of the cooperage and winemaking processes, to reinvent classic designs and create stunning new ones. We are proud to be able to say that out range uses over 90% reclaimed wood.

2) Talk us through your latest product/s:
Wineoak is constantly developing new designs for chairs, tables and wineracks. Our latest launches include the versatile Sémillon Barrel Cabinet, which can be configured as a wine rack or drinks cabinet.
3) What goals would you like to achieve for your company in the future?
At Wineoak, we believe that our products are at home wherever there is warmth and hospitality. We create true centrepieces for dining rooms, living rooms, conservatories and wine cellars, and are a natural partner for anyone looking for striking furniture with character and excellent environmental credentials.
We look forward to collaborating with both interior designers and members of the hospitality industry to create unforgettable spaces in which to enjoy good food, good wine and good company.
