If you're looking where to start then take a look at our best selling oak ranges: Contemporary Oak and Reclaimed Oak.
Oak is one of the most popular materials for wooden furniture, and it's not hard to see why. Typically used for finer and more elegant furnishings, solid oak furniture conveys a sense of high quality and durability. Solid oak dining tables are a popular choice due to the innate strength of the timbers used. Similarly, solid oak wardrobes are a popular choice due to the durability and sturdiness that an oak piece can provide. Oak furniture is unique in that it can lend itself to so many different styles. Contemporary oak furniture is highly popular, as is reclaimed oak furniture, or reclaimed-style furniture. For oak sideboards the Rivermead oak range offers exceptional value and is 100% solid wood with no veneers of MDF.
Stylistically, oak differentiates from pine in many ways. Oak is incredibly dense in comparison to pine and has a heavy and open grain offering a natural and highly attractive look, especially when treated with a good quality lacquer. The majority of oak we offer here is known as Red Oak, which means we source it from North America, or sometimes Europe.
