Our classic beauty - Orkney Chairs made in the precious hardwood OAK.
Oak is a hard, durable wood and a good choice if you intend to sit in your chair, it is placed where it may be brushed against or bumped eg in a hallway or your household has lively children and/or pets. The wood can sometimes display distinctive striped markings in the grain, often this is very subtle.
When considering your Orkney Chair in your existing decor, oak is the lightest wood we offer. It's natural neutral tone will compliement most colour schemes. If your home already contains a lot of dark wood and you would prefer the wood of your Orkney Chair to match this we suggest taking a look at our deep, dark walnut chairs and rich sapele wood chairs.
