Oak Furniture ideas

13th December 2017

Creating beautiful, timeless furniture for your home is possible with our versatile timber. If you’re looking to construct stunning oak furniture that’s brimming with character, you’ve come to the right place, and here are just a few oak furniture ideas to help you get the ball rolling. 


Coffee Tables

Solid oak is a fine choice for coffee tables, and you can create your very own to be strong, durable and packed with personality. If you’re looking for some inspiration, be sure to check out our Oak Beam Coffee Tables and Oak Sleeper Coffee Tables. They’re hand-made in our Corby workshop using good quality English or European oak - so there’s certainly no MDF or chipboard here, just chunky pieces of solid oak. The great thing about constructing a coffee table is that there’s so many different designs you can choose from, and you only need to have a look on Pinterest to get an idea for the furniture you can create, but from our experience, you really can’t go wrong with a design that’s simple and clean, because at the end of the day, you want the true character of the oak to shine through. This is exactly what we had in mind with our Sleeper and Beam Coffee Tables.

Mantel Pieces

If you’d like to add a stunning surround to your fireplace then why not add a rustic beam? Ours are created from partially dried oak sleepers, whilst they are left untreated so that you can finish them with your favourite colour, using paint, oil, stain or wax. This piece of furniture may be a simple one, but it will certainly add style, character and elegance to your room.


Bookcases are often constructed of solid oak, and our quality beams can be used to give you a real rustic finish with wonderful cracks and splits. Again, there are lots of design ideas online for bookcases, but always make sure the quality of the oak comes through and complements your room, as well as your books!

Garden Furniture

For garden furniture, nothing stands the test of time quite like real wood. We already have a range of garden furniture on our website, and each design has been carefully created to suit modern and traditional properties. With chairs, tables and blocks, we have everything you could possibly need to create a stylish outdoor living space, but should you want to design and create your own, we have the quality oak that will give you the look you crave.

Choosing furniture that stands the test of time and looks even better with age is only possible with quality solid wood, like structural green or air dried oak beams and boards. The possibilities of designing your own furniture are endless and you can find lots of inspiration on our website, whilst there are so many ways in which you can personalise the furniture even further, whether that be a touch of premium paint, a classic oil or a wax to add a touch of warmth.
