Oak, because it’ll look more than good in your home. You can expect the odd knot here and the odd change in wood grain there – which means no two benches will ever look quite the same – but overall, it’s a well-balanced timber.
To add a bit more texture to an otherwise clean and crisp timber, the oak has a brushed surface that exposes the grooves in its grain. We then apply our treatment oil – IsoGuard® – to make it easier to live with. Think of it as a defence barrier, but one that you’d never know was there. IsoGuard® comes in a few finishes; this one’s Natural Oak, which, as the name suggests, gives the oak a subtle, honey-coloured look.
Every aspect of Arundel is substantial but not too chunky, so it feels solid and timeless, not clunky. You’ll also spot small circles of timber on the sides. These are where we’ve joined the parts together, and are much more attractive than visible screws.
