Oak furniture speaks of solidity and permanence. “Solid oak” furnishings are the basic, wonderful wood pieces that can truly make a home comfortable and inviting and be lovely for the office as well. Drawing from a world market, only the best woods are used and harvested from sustainable forests. Even the “reclaimed” oak is just new wood with a distressed finish to resemble reclaimed. A light lacquer is used to finish the wood so that the natural grain can come through clearly. Whilst utilizing sustainable wood materials gathered around the world, oak furniture is built to last and styled in design ranges sure to match with interior decor currently chosen.
Indeed, the oak wood does come from all over the world, from the Americas, the woods of Russia and elsewhere. Each piece is naturally unique because of the grains sported. Still, the company is environmentally conscious and will use wood gathered from sustainable forests that are re-planted for maintenance of tree growth over time. The wood should be put to use in fine furniture, but there needs to be a looking out for the future, not just a depletion of supplies for quick profit. We want to leave healthy forests behind us always.
To be sure, the furnishings are all densely, compactly constructed. Artfully crafted, with joints closely matching grains for a smooth, continuous look. Some finishes combine lacquer and wax for just the right shine to enhance the style and natural grain. This process also protects the surface of the wood from moisture and resists scratching. Durability and strength is the achievement desired with each piece of oak furniture.
