Oliver James Coffee
Oliver Burscough, the brains behind Woodsters, has been trying his hand at a few new projects. Woodsters Furniture & Carpentry found a new home on Austin Street in Newstead in 2016, which houses an expanded workshop in the back for its custom fit-out operations. The space now boasts two new brands for the company – Oliver James Furniture and Oliver James Coffee. In February 2017 the front portion of the warehouse was converted into a showroom-meets-cafe (fitted out by Woodsters, of course), where patrons can browse and sit on the handcrafted furniture, while sipping on Single O coffee and munching Crust & Co. pastries. Oliver James Furniture’s showroom boasts a range of stools, tables and sling chairs plus more items to be introduced in the near future. Even if you aren’t in the market for some new furnishings, Oliver James Coffee is always welcoming to patrons looking for a cool respite from the day-to-day minutiae.
