PGT-Reclaimed farewells Cornwall Bedding


PGT-Reclaimed’s lifestyle furniture collections have confidently ridden the waves of trend, with owner, Australian Ian Burden knowing when to evolve pieces to remain relevant to the market.

PGT-Reclaimed recently won World Grand Champion at the international Green World Awards, has produced around 30 unique collections for the home, using 100 percent solid reclaimed timber, certified by the Forest Stewardship Council.

One of its most popular collections has been Cornwall, with pieces for Bedding, Dining, Living and Office. First called ‘New England’, the collection honoured a region of New South Wales where Mr Burden frequented in his younger years.

The collection you see today is the exact same style it was in the beginning, with a colonial shape, including beautifully curved legs in the dining tables.

What’s changed has been the finish. At the beginning, the collection was made in a one-tone, dark wood finish, however, as the market changed, Mr Burden knew the collection needed a facelift.

Mr Burden recalled the revamp process: “In 2009, we had recently completed development on a new and complicated Sundried Ash Finish, so I decided to use that on the collection’s surface with a Stucco White finish on the base”.

Mr Burden realised the now two-toned collection needed a new name. As PGT-Reclaimed was well and truly international, he chose to rename the collection ‘Cornwall’ because the new appearance honoured this iconic western English area known for its limestone cottages and cobbled lanes.

Cornwall is still a popular collection in both Australia – readers might have noticed pieces featured in Season 3 of The Great Australian Bake Off earlier this year – and within the 17 other countries the company ships to worldwide.

But, as the saying goes, all good things must come to an end, with Mr Burden confirming the manufacturing of the Cornwall Bedding collection would finish at the end of this year to make way for exciting new collections.

“It will be sad to say goodbye to this line, but just like the collection, we want to continue being relevant to the consumer and the consumer is now attracted towards a more industrial and modern look,” Mr Burden said.

“We invite all consumers who own pieces from Cornwall Bedding and who would like to complete their collection, to make their final purchases as soon as possible as stock is limited.”
