There are certain features that pull consumers to oak, especially where appearance is concerned. You don’t have to look too far to spot oak furniture in homes, restaurants, coffee shops, bars offices and other spaces. It is very distinctive in colour, with a lovely gold/brown hue which varies slightly on species. It also can complement modern design schemes with its clean edges and subtle grain. For older buildings, the look and texture of oak furniture complements period features, so you can see it works well in most settings.
Waney edged oak, with its bark and variations in colour may result in some truly unique and special oak furniture too while you’re always guaranteed a great deal of durability with this quality natural material. Green oak and kiln-dried oak are both suitable for internal furniture and have their own distinct look, but this will be further enhanced by staining or the appliance of oils, varnishes and waxes to bring out the grain of the timber.
