In this post I wanted to take one oak coffee table, the one I have chosen is from the Oak Furniture Company – the Loire and it’s priced at £299. With this oak coffee table, I wanted to look at how it would suit many different schemes.
I think the beauty of oak furniture, is its pretty timeless. It’s also hard-wearing, and with a little love, and perhaps paint if you really wanted to really change it up, it can actually last you a life time. I chose a classic round coffee table, but to be honest a rectangular one would fit just as well.
First of all, how about this minimal Scandi style living room. Natural products work really well within many nordic style interiors I think. They tend to be light and airy, and using pale colours, perhaps with splashes of metallics. I would dress the table with 3 of these geometric candle sticks I spotted on the Not On The High Street site for just £10 each :
Underneath I’d add a large sheepskin rug for the coffee table to rest on, it would look very chic I think.
Next up, I want to show you how it would look in a vintage inspired living room. The dark inky walls would contrast so well with the warmth of the oak. It would need those darker colours and vintage pieces to be reflected on the table though to really worl. I think a collection of vintage books would look great on the shelf at the bottom. How about this handmade plate, in the centre piled high with rosy red apples to complete the look?
Finally a more classic and traditional interior. Going down this route often gives the decor an expensive look and feel. It also gives you a great base to add more trend led pieces too, if you wanted to add them as styles changed. For this classic look I would add a potted orchid like this from Marks and Spencer at £50, which would look stunning in the centre of the table, oversized, and with great visual impact.
So I think you will agree, oak furniture really is a versatile and timeless choice.
