Solid oak furniture first became popular in the medieval ages and remains as much in vogue today as it was then. Renowned for its strength, attractive grain patterns and golden hues, it's perfect for making durable and beautiful pieces of furniture. Oak furniture ages extremely well and requires very little maintenance to keep it looking as good as the day it was made. The wood doesn't suffer from the same wear and tear that other softer woods are prone to, and is quicker to acclimate to different environments.
There's no doubt that oak furniture will bring a sense of style and class to your home. Oak furniture adds warmth and style to a room; it's extremely versatile and blends well with a variety of different wood types. It is a very textual and tonal wood, which creates a lot of interest in the home. Different tones range from very dark to quite light allowing it to complement a broad range of colour schemes and décors. Oak furniture looks every bit as home in a very modern, contemporary home as it does in a more traditional abode or country farmhouse.
