  • Mantelpiece Monday

    With it being a Monday makes it Mantelpiece Monday!

    This is where we look at cool new ideas for Solid Oak Mantelpieces that could transform your home, and make a tattered old mantelpiece a breath of fresh air, and perhaps a cornerstone in your own house.


    First up we have the simple but effective Solid Oak Mantelpiece with a rustic warm look that would work well the a log burning or an electrical fire. This unique piece really does show that Solid Oak has something to offer in terms of mantelpieces, instead of perhaps a Marble look which doesn't really bring that cosy feel.

    With a Mantel piece like that it must be combined with an elegant Coffee Table to contribute to the overall look, and this Cottage Oak table would really play off well with a Mantel piece like that. With Mantelpiece having a light finish combining with an Cottage oak style would only enhance the room.

    Here we have a darker Solid Oak Mantelpiece which is also combined with a stove type fire which also has that warming quality that the previous one had. Another perk about having a Solid Oak mantel piece is that you have the opportunity to nail on signs, trinkets and well anything else that you desire. Also this can be ever changing, so you can constantly be creating new a different looks that set the room off.

    With this being a darker wood, you would need something darker to match it up and make the look that bit bolder, luckily Oak Furniture King has the exact thing that would play off this perfectly. This French Chateau rustic Solid Oak Large bookcase has a real classy aura about it and embodies that vintage quality! As you can see from the image below it's tall nature gives it that grandiose vibe, which only some furniture can truely embody.

  • Introducing the Rattan Range

    With the Spring in full swing and Summer just right around the corner, your garden quickly becomes the place to be as you spend most of your time with friends and family there, really soaking up the sun and catching up with everything that has been going on.

    However you cannot fully enjoy your garden until you have the right furniture in place, and that's where the classic Rattan look comes into play and offers a beautiful outside earthy look combined with indoor comfort. Of course you can go out and purchase the simple plastic furniture but it lacks in quality, style and comfort which Rattan offers in abundance. Also who wants to contest with the untrustworthy plastic furniture when it snaps, and potentially ruining an event.

    So you may be wondering where to start with the classic Rattan look, well firstly you should consider the Giardino range which you can either get in a Light or Dark Brown coloured mix, which makes it contrast with green grass so well. Also with the smart cube look it's easy to keep tidy as they fit perfectly underneath the table, however it's advisable to take in your cushions, we wouldn't want them to get ruined!

    Secondly we have the Savannah style which offers more of a classic look that is combined with a modern touch, and garners the ability to turn any garden into an elegant seating area. Also the set comes free with parasol just in case one of the days the sun is burning down too bright and ruining your ice cold drink. Even though the range is very pretty it still has that strength as the Rattan material is so strong and flexible at the same time.

    Finally we have the biggest collection on this list, the Arizona Set complete with eight seats, a parasol and stylish glass top finish on the table all accumulating to the pristine look we all aspire to have. The rectangular shape of the table ensures enough space each person if you wanted to go alfresco, and would also be suitable to use for an outside buffet with the parasol protecting the food from the sun. The Arizona has bohemian qualities making it a very unique set of furniture that anyone could appreciate, and could be enjoyed by everyone.

  • Oak Furniture Hacks!

    As we had such a good reception for our previous Furniture Hacks post, we have decided to bring another, this time we bring together our two favourite things, Solid Oak and Furniture Hacks.

    First up we have the inspiring work that has been completed on these stairs, incorporating the use of storage within the staircase. Of course this would be a difficult task to take on, however the results would shadow over the work as you would be gaining so much storage. Also with this being Oak you can guarantee the quality will be long lasting and keep the classic look for a lengthy time.


    Next up we have a simplistic headboard design that anyone could complete with a bit of determination on time. A Solid Oak Headboard would work perfectly with any bed frame we have to offer here at Oak Furniture King, so why not having an attempt at making this out a bit of old Oak.


    Finally we have an alternate shelf that could easily be made with some old crates or pieces of wood. At home we're always looking for another place where we can put our belongings, and this would provide ideal storage, while having bringing a warm rustic look to the room.


    Those are another three of favourites, if you have any that you would love to share please tweet them over to us @loveoakking!
