It’s not hard to see why oak furniture is popular; this timeless, classic wood is highly durable and very low maintenance to list but two of its attributes. Its natural look with knots and crevices also means no one piece of furniture is quite like another – and oak can feature in most rooms in the home not to mention outside in gardens and courtyards.
Some like to have oak throughout their home, others might treat themselves to a single piece of oak furniture such as a chunky kitchen table or maybe a feature bookcase.
Traditional and Modern
A chunky oak bench with high tech looking steel legs or a thick oaken stand designed to house your big screen TV and surround sound system is a great way of combining the modern with the traditional.
Don’t forget other oak furniture options over and above the usual tables, beds and benches. How about a chunky and rustic looking gas fire surround? Don’t forget the children – a chunky oak bedside cabinet is something they’ll likely hang onto for years and maybe pass on to their own offspring.
A chunky oak pedestal or two in the hallway with a plant or ornamental vase on top can add character to a space, and a handmade oak desk adds class to a home office.
Using a bespoke oak furniture maker means your own unique piece of furniture can become reality.
