Oak furniture and oak lighting
That’s a really interesting combination of furniture and lighting. Oak is a wood material with great strength and hardness and is very resistant to insects. It has a nice looking grain markings and when processed with a primer and lacquer gets a shiny appearance and is protected against aging. Oak furniture makes interior looks luxury and stylish. There are a lot different furniture made of oak – tables, chairs, cabinets, wardrobes and many more.
You can always add some classic style to your living-room or bedroom. But have in mind that classic furniture cannot be just placed without combining it with the whole interior concept. I would like to show you some nice oak furniture items that are worth buying.

What about lighting?
There are a lot of ceiling lights with real oak used for decoration. Unfortunately, they are much more expensive than those with MDF or other cheap imitation of wood. It is always a good idea to combine the real oak furniture with some wood decoration in the lighting.

Palma ceiling lights– real oak wood, halogen bulbs, mirror stainless steel and chrome plated elements, frosted glass
