Solid Oak Furniture In The Home: Beautiful, Practical And Durable
Total Articles: 7
One can tell a lot about a person by the manner in which he decorates his home as well as by the furniture’s contribution to the home décor. While many choose the simplest, plainest and often least expensive pieces to do a bare-minimum job – organizing belongings and providing places to sit down, to give two examples – others are more deliberate in their furniture purchases and opt for pieces which add character to the home and serve as an additional form of self-expression. Solid oak furniture in the home tells the world that the dweller values beauty, practicality and durability.
The bedroom is one of the easiest rooms in the house to improve with the right furniture, and a well-constructed solid oak bedroom set will create a very sophisticated look and feel in the most intimate space of your home. Whether you want the centrepiece of your bedroom to give the room a French flair or other Old-World feel or with a more rustic, even Western American look, solid oak beds are available to suit every taste. Solid oak drawer chests also come in a wide variety of styles and finishes; even within the same collection, such as Sherwood and Arizona, one can find drawer chests with only a few drawers as well as pieces with enough space to store half of one’s wardrobe or more. Matching bedside tables also provide the perfect finishing touch to a bedroom thoughtfully furnished with solid oak furniture.
The wonderful thing about solid oak furniture is that, with so many different designs and finishes available, the style-conscious homeowner need never sacrifice form for function, not even in the dining area. Dining room chairs from the Metz Medium Oak Collection feature chair backs extending all the way to the floor, masking their functionality in favour of a more decorative look. Similarly, dining room tables with benches from the Sherwood and Brantford Collections make for a cosier, more communal home environment which guests can also enjoy. Several collections, such as North Bay, Niagara and Colorado, feature partially upholstered dining room chairs, which provide solid wood construction while breaking up the uniformity of the wood finish from table to chair. The current trend with dining room tables is toward simplicity of design, although Parisian- and Normandy-style oak tables will add classic details such as a pedestal base to the traditionally furnished dining area.
Mahogany furniture and other types of dark-stained pieces are also ideal for home offices in which clients are received; the more traditional look conveys knowledge, sensibility and authority. Likewise, the items in the Toronto Walnut and Dark Mango Collections come in a medium-dark, relatively high-contrast finish which recalls the art-deco sensibility of the modernist era. The Toronto Walnut console table and Dark Mango sideboard are ideal pieces above which to hang a Kandinsky reproduction or a similar work from the first part of the twentieth century.
While basic home furnishings are generally the buyer’s top priority, accent pieces can tastefully fulfil organisational needs which one does not always associate with furniture. Solid oak key organisers and wine racks keep those items easily accessible, and E- and S-shaped display shelving makes a great place to keep or display everything from books and telephone bases to scented candles and assorted memorabilia. Likewise, solid oak storage benches with drawers are attractive and practical space-savers, and an oak toy box will provide a place where toys can be kept out from underfoot and even create a sense of magic for the small child who knows that the toys will all stay hidden in a very special place until the next time she gets to play with them.
Solid oak furniture typically costs more and even weighs more than its cheaper, mass-produced counterparts, and buyers immediately appreciate the difference in quality and are generally satisfied with the decision to spend more on higher-quality furniture. For the absolute best furniture that will last for many years, those in the market for new home furnishings should make solid oak their first choice.
Investing in oak furniture is surely worth it, especially if you know how to choose the right one and take good care of it. So if you are in the market for high quality oak furniture, then why not take a look at the Oakworld Solid Oak Furniture website.
