6 hardwood timber furniture pieces that will elevate your interior
From mid-century modern silhouettes to oak furniture pieces inspired by Scandinavian design, here are six stunning furniture pieces to up-level your interior.
1. Add a mid-century coffee table to your living room
With tapered legs and crafted from natural hardwood timber, the Oslo oak coffee table is characteristic of mid-century modern furniture. Four drawers make it a functional piece, and with a sleek profile it is a beautiful addition to modern living spaces – the grains of the oak on display.
“Solid timber furniture is a great investment,” says Shan Lin of Oak Furniture Store & Sofas. “and something that you will have for life.”
2. A solid cherry entertainment unit with mid-century influence
“For higher-end furniture, cherrywood and American walnut are two of the most expensive hardwood timbers in the world,” says Shan.
The Prunus Solid Cherry Medium Entertainment Unit is one example of a cherrywood piece available at Oak Furniture Store & Sofas.
“Styled for the contemporary living space, the modern TV-media stand features versatility as well as flair and elegance. Our skilled craftsmen use traditional, time-honoured methods to ensure each piece is made to last a lifetime. These techniques include resilient dovetail joints and solid oak runners on every drawer.”
3. A sophisticated walnut entertainment unit
For a piece darker in tone, this walnut entertainment unit brings visual warmth to an interior. Custom-made brass feet and drawer-pulls on the sliding doors give an elegant touch, and the grains of the solid timber can be seen on each surface.
4. Introduce curves with a round oak dining table
Moving into the dining area, a great way to elevate the space is with stylish curves and rich timber. The Horsens Design Solid Oak Round Dining Table is a great example of an elegant piece made with exquisite craftsmanship that is sure to up-level your dining room.
A cone-shaped 25mm sculpted base gives the table stability for up to four people to dine comfortably, while adding visual interest.
Shan says that all oak furniture available from the brand’s physical store location and online store are crafted to last: “Unlike flat-pack furniture that is a one-off product and can’t be reassembled again when you move house, our solid wood furniture is all made using traditional joints. They’re not going to break, and even in the instance of damage, you can repair it back to new.”
5. For the minimalist
For those wanting to elevate their interior by integrating elements of Japandi interior design – a fusion of Japanese and Scandinavian minimalist design – the focus should be on pieces that celebrate natural materials and have an emphasis on functionality.
6. A Scandi-inspired dining table
“The new trend is slim-lined designs and neutral colours – this is becoming more and more popular. The size of furniture is also becoming smaller,” says Shan.
An example of this is the Kotala Natural Solid Oak Extendable Dining Table with Mable Top. With clean lines, an oak base and white sintered stone top, it sits comfortably in spaces influenced by Scandinavian design – its functionality also responds to the Scandi design philosophy.
