The wonderful smell of oak cabinets and oak furniture. It’s funny isn’t it, of all the materials in the world that can be used for anything in the home, be it floors, tables, doors, window frames – once you add the oak feature, it becomes something much more special.
This was borne out when I visited a super art deco place in a nearby town. It is stunning throughout, although a little dark for my taste is many of the somewhat bijoux rooms. The ideas were so ahead of their time in the late 1920s. There are fabulous panels in the flooring, tables with beautiful finishes. China cabinets reflecting the movers and shakers of their day. When we want something to reflect how well we are getting on in life, the only way to make that mark is to use a quality product. You cannot get any more quality thatn a good old fashioned peice of oak, whatever it be used for.
