Hi! We’re Lark & Owl.
We handcraft bespoke timber furniture and homewares, and hand-pour soy wax candles in Perth, Western Australia.
We’re a husband & wife team – Dom (the Morning Lark) & Amy (the Night Owl) – with a shared passion for all things timber and handmade and have been involved in the timber industry for over 20 years.
We met as co-workers in 2005, and as they say ‘the rest is history’. We have always loved woodworking – we love taking a piece of unassuming, uninspiring timber and revealing the hidden beauty it holds. So in November 2015 (six months after our wedding) we decided to turn our home hobby into a business.
We strive to be as sustainable as possible - purchasing reclaimed and salvaged timber to create our pieces. This not only helps the environment by reducing the amount of waste, but they also come with a great story, and they look great! We have reclaimed timber from old houses in Fremantle, Australian jarrah and blackbutt from old factories in Cockburn, and used oak wine barrels from the Margaret River Wine Region.
Some of our timber is sourced from land clearing for new housing estates. In many cases this timber would be burnt or sent to landfill - instead, we salvage it and turn it into something beautiful.
We’re proud to be making quality home fragrance, furniture and homewares, right here in WA with our amazing local and exotic timbers. And what we love most of all is that we get to do it together, as a team.
Being able to share our joy of woodworking with others is what makes it all worthwhile. So we hope you enjoy what you see, because we enjoyed making it for you.
