The versatility of oak furniture

Oak furniture has many  fine qualities, firstly it always looks beautiful even when it has aged. Secondly it is absolutely going to last the distance and this hard wearing wood is going to give you excellent value for money and a long life.

Oak can have a reputation for being quite serious furniture that perhaps doesn’t have a place in a contemporary home. But actually oak can be very flexible and fit into lots of different room schemes.The versatility of oak furniture is often under appreciated.  Let me show you a few ideas I have for using oak in modern room schemes.

I love this Elodie grey oak and pine bookcase

It looks so solid and classic doesn’t it and such a lovely colour. Look how well it fits into a simple contemporary lounge scheme

I also rather love this New England dressing table

and it doesn’t have to fit into a rustic scene. Look how well it worked in a simple minimalist bedroom

I think the scheme looks really modern and the dresser fits in beautifully.
Oak really is a versatile wood and a wood of quality too. I think the fact it works in so many different rooms means it is furniture that you can move around and adapt to room changes, which really does make a good investment.
