About Our Oak:

oak timber

We use solid American oak from the eastern coastal forests of the USA and Canada. These large forests are among the best managed in the world and, due to careful management, are increasing in size.
Oak has subtle variations in tone and colour cast. These variations are responsible for the ‘life’ of our solid timber beds in comparison to the uniform, flatter colour of veneered furniture. Differences in the tight, pronounced grain pattern reflect the differences between the original trees. Small knots or burrs may be present even in the most carefully selected timber – these are part of the natural beauty of wood.

Over time oak can deepen in colour, resulting in a warmer tone. If you are looking to match your oak bed with current furniture please request a timber sample from us, but please note that wood samples should be taken as indicative of the wood and finish – it is not possible to guarantee an exact colour match.

Caring for Oak Furniture:

Unless otherwise specified, our oak beds are finished in a durable clear soft satin (low sheen) lacquer. This provides an easy to care for and durable finish that doesn’t compromise the natural beauty of the wood grain. We suggest dusting your oak bed with a dry, soft cloth.

Solid woods may expand and shrink slightly with differences in temperature and humidity. Take care not place your wooden furniture next to radiators or anywhere subject to any excessive changes in temperature or moisture content. If you are using our bedside tables – we recommend that all kitchenware and beverages should be placed on mats and any spillages should be wiped up immediately. Solid oak furniture may be subject to rough grain protruding from previously smooth surfaces, this is usually caused by humid conditions or a spillage, and is indicative of water being absorbed into the wood and causing the grain to swell.

Cleaning: To clean wipe with a slightly damp cloth and immediately buff with a dry cloth. In the event of more stubborn marks, a solution of mild detergent should be used on the cloth. Silicone based polishes should not be used on the wood as they can build up and leave a sticky residue on the surface.
