natural oak

Natural oak is a hardwood that comes from the oak trees native to the northern hemisphere. Even though it takes up to 150 years before oak tree wood is used for construction, oak wood has been widely used as a hardwood timber for many years. In modern times, oak is widely used in furniture making because of its longevity. The hard and smooth feel of the material always complements the furniture that has this type of material.

This material is a durable, heavy, and strong type of wood that has a noticeable grain and a gorgeous natural light colour. Oak has natural features like the variations and contrasts of the shine that does not need heavy ornamentation.
