Solid oak minimalist furniture


Oak is one of the most traditional of hardwoods, used for centuries across most of the northern hemisphere to craft furniture of all shapes and design styles.

It grows slowly, resulting in a dense wood that's known for its durability and weather resistance. There are around 600 species of oak, but the main ones used for sustainable oak furniture in the UK are imported American white oak and more locally-grown European species. 

We prefer to use European oak, partly for its more distinctive and variable grain pattern, but also because it's less prone to splitting and warping. This is critical for our minimal designs, which involve wide, flat panels of solid wood that need to be as stable as possible.

The European oak we use shows a stunning variety of patterns in the grain. In particular, you'll see whitish-silvery marks on some boards - these aren't defects, they're called "figuring" or medullary rays, and it's a characteristic of oak which is seen when the boards have been 'quarter-sawn' (when the boards have been cut at around 90 degrees to the direction of the rings).

The silvery ray patterns vary from board to board, with some surfaces being quite regular while others showing all sorts of interesting patterns depending on the angle of the grain in each board. We let all the features show up as they come, so every piece of oak furniture has its own character.

Marston Wide TV Stand

The Marston Wide TV Stand is an extra-wide piece of furniture that shows the full variety of grain pattern along its wide surface.Wide oak tv stand

Oak lends itself really well to minimal, pared-back designs that focus on the character of the wood and showcase the fact that it's made from solid wood, not a veneer.

Each piece of oak furniture is completely unique; the grain will vary every time (so don't go for this if you want something really predictable and even in colour!) with a mesmerising variety of colour and pattern. That's the beauty of it - it's natural, variable and sometimes unpredictable, but always authentic.
