About Our Oak:
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.
At Natural Bed Company, for our wooden beds, we only use timber from sustainable sources and never use endangered tropical hardwoods. All our timber is from a legally certified source and purchased under the 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.
