Who would have thought that Oak would be the mighty wood of the moment. When one thinks of oak we tend to think of dark stained heavily grained oak that could be found in some of our grandparent's homes. Thank goodness for the Belgian world of design to expose us to lovely white quarter sawn oak. It is used in it's most natural state as simple white quarter sawn oak with ether wax, clear finish or lime. Sometimes a gray tone stain adds character but I love it simply natural. I think the mighty Oak will be the hit of 2016 but far from a passing trend!
