Few timbers have shaped the history of furniture design as much as oak. Perfect for any number of uses, oak has been used for centuries to create wonderful pieces of furniture that are both enduring and ageless in their appeal.

Its diversity is apparent, from the traditional dark tones associated with vintage furniture, to the fresh appearance of natural oak that suits the contemporary style of today, says Simon James of specialist furniture company, James & Co.

"We are very passionate about oak, and this is reflected in our furniture. Staying with traditional methods of construction means we can guarantee that each creation will be admired for many years."

James & Co specialises in European and American white oak handcrafted furniture, from free-standing kitchens to single pieces, such as hall tables.

Rather than having a range of furniture for customers to choose from, James & Co prefers to work with clients to produce furniture that fulfils their needs.

"We make furniture to our clients' requirements. They can choose the wood type, colour, size and style that suits them the best," he says.
