Maria Tesei

Welcome to the Maria Tesei website. We are a small family run business based in Nottingham which started in 2009. We offer a selection of high quality wood furniture that can be ordered either in a waxed finish or can be custom painted in any Farrow and Ball colour of your choice (there are 130+ colours to choose from).

We work closely with local craftsmen who hand make the pine farmhouse tables, benches and chairs to order which are then custom hand painted and finished in our workshop.

The rustic range is hand crafted and imported from India.

After many years of hand painting furniture, the joy has never faded so you can be sure that any piece you receive from us has been hand painted with the utmost care and passion! We only use Farrow and Ball interior estate eggshell paint on our furniture simply because we personally find it to be the most pleasurable to work with whilst also giving the best results.

For all painted orders we will include a little ‘touch up’ pot of paint so that you can attend to any little knocks and bangs that may occur (this won’t apply to any furniture ordered with a distressed finish…for obvious reasons!).

Occasionally we will find and fall in love with a ‘vintage’ piece that we will feel compelled to paint so do visit our website regularly to check out fabulous ‘one offs’ that might crop up from time to time.

We hope you enjoy browsing the website and if you have any queries please don’t hesitate to email us (

Please do send photos of any furniture you order from us so that we can have the pleasure of seeing it in situ……and perhaps it will make its way onto the website photo gallery.

Thank you for reading.
