I really love the feeling of oak for all kinds of furnishings. Be this the dining room suite – or the bedroom ensemble. There is no surer way to make the room look well furnished and stylish than ny using oak. I have often been around show rooms where they have all kinds of modern arrangements on view. This excites me as I can usually see the potential of this piece or that in any setting. If I am working on someone’s new scheme, I obviously ask them for their ideas of what constitutes a really well dressed and furnished room. Invariably the oak table and sideboard is left out of their thinking. I know not why, but once I introduce this idea, they are with it all the way. The warmth and versatility of the wood cannot be beaten, especially by the low cost mass produced scandnavian home fillers that still abound.
