Don’t you love when the plan comes together? That’s the feeling we had when we designed the Aretha dining table. Let us share the product brief. The table needs to fit in most spaces, it needs to combine a contemporary and a classic look, it needs to have an American oak top and it needs to be comfortable. All checked! The round top is made from American oak of 32mm thickness. The round base makes the table elegant and gives it a soul. Just like Aretha Franklin was in person.
Our designers and makers at Furniturespot love to work with engineered wood, also known as veneer. We only use engineered oak for our furniture items because we love the texture of that wood type in combination with the different available finishes.
Engineered oak is a solid timber top (0.3 mm of solid oak) in conjunction with a multi-layer MDF base. Thanks to our clever construction, our engineered wood tops do not expand and contract to the same extent as solid wood tops. But our engineered top’s really special feature is the fact that it’s topped off with solid oak, making the end result look just like solid wood but for a much better price!
We receive weekly questions why we are using engineered oak and not solid oak throughout. To start with, the price is 400% cheaper than a solid oak top. It is better resistant to the South African climate with no risk of cupping, bowing, cracking of the top and it is easy in maintenance. Do we need to say more?
We made a Q&A around engineered oak.
Engineered wood is sensitive to light. We'd recommend that you avoid leaving anything on the surfaces for the first 6-8 weeks, if they're exposed to sunlight. This should help you avoid any marks or rings appearing if the furniture lightens in the sun.
A damp (never soaking wet) cloth will do it. Dry the surfaces thoroughly afterwards. Both wood and engineered wood can be damaged by liquids, so if you spill anything on it, be sure to wipe it dry immediately. If you need to remove any stains, go gently – use mild soap and warm water.
