Looking for oak beds? Here you can see at a glance all of the beds available in solid oak.
We use solid American oak sourced 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 is a strong durable timber which has subtle variations in tone and colour cast. Differences in the tight, pronounced grain pattern reflect the differences between the original trees. Small knots or burrs may be present and 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.
Our full range of hand made bed designs are available in solid Oak. Want to see more of the Oak timber?

Natural Bed Company wooden beds only use timber from sustainable sources and never use endangered tropical hardwoods. All our timber is from a legally certified source and purchased under EUTR (European Union Timber Regulation). Our pine is from Scandinavia and our hardwoods – ash, oak, maple, cherry, walnut and beech are from the USA or northern Europe. Buying timber from managed forests ensures that new trees are planted and the cycle of planting, growth and harvest can continue. We think it is important that the amazing natural resource of timber should be used to make furniture that will last.
Unless otherwise specified, our beds are finished in a durable Natural look (low sheen) lacquer. This provides an easy to care for and durable finish that doesn’t compromise the natural beauty of the wood grain.
Solid woods may expand and shrink slightly with differences in temperature and humidity. Take care not place your 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 any beverages should be placed on mats and spillages should be wiped up immediately to prevent marking.
To clean the wood finish, wipe with a slightly damp cloth and immediately buff with a dry cloth. Silicone based polishes should not be used on the wood too often as they build up and leave a sticky residue on the surface.
