A closer look at Edinburgh
Edinburgh’s defining feature is its legs. They were inspired by classical columns, but are restrained, not fussy. They also highlight the oak’s grain. And on the bottom shelf, you’ll notice a pattern that looks just like tongue-and-groove panelling.
We use oak for its beautiful grain, its durability and its sense of heritage (we’ve written more on its qualities here). Knots and variations in tone are part of its character, so each and every part of Edinburgh will be unique.
Brushing the oak removes the soft fibres from its grain, so you get a rustic, touchable texture. The wood’s protected with our IsoGuard® treatment oil in Vintage Oak, which guards against dirt and scuffs while giving it a slightly darker tone.
Where we see it
Edinburgh’s sturdy column legs give it a slightly traditional look that suits our Olivia and George sofas. The biggest size is not only spacious enough for all your coffee-table books, but will also fit our larger lamps and vases, like Hanley and Charlton.
