Quirky vintage style with PWS' rubberwood
PWS' rubberwood worktops were the perfect choice for the Oil Can Cafe, part of West Yorkshire's newest vintage Emporium near Holmfirth.
Over 18 metres of rubberwood were specified for the countertops of this unique servery. The light timber creates a distinctive contrast to the brightly coloured oil cans and the overall look is quirky and fun and very much suits the 50s-themed cafe.
Rubberwood was chosen not only for its visual appeal and warmth, but because of its clear link with the automotive scene, as the sap from rubberwood is used in the production of tyres.
Andrew McGee of TFive, Design Consultant for the project says: "The brief was to reflect the owner's passion for vintage cars, fashion and the Goodwood revival and was a great project to work on. The feedback from the owner and visitors alike has been overwhelmingly positive and the rubberwood worktops are very much part of the design's appeal."
The Oil Can Cafe is a key feature of the visitor attraction called the Carding Shed, alongside specialist retailers such as vintage clothing, antiques and automotive memorabilia as well as the owner's collection of vintage cars.
