Oak - American Red

Only the UK made use of red Oak in the early days of its introduction into Europe. It is now being used extensively in Germany.

We're certain, as fashion is cyclical by nature, it will be back in favour here before long.

Although non-durable, in our opinion its grain pattern and colour enhances staircases, cabinets, floors and kitchen furniture far more than white Oak and it should be used more widely.
