Look closely at Herston’s storage shelf and you’ll see it has a parquet-style pattern. And the X-shaped frame adds a little decoration as well as making the table more stable.
Oak’s durable with a beautiful grain and a sense of heritage (we’ve written more on its qualities here). Knots and variations in tone are part of its character, so each piece will be unique. Herston’s marble top has a honed finish, which means it’s smooth and matte. Because it’s not light-reflective, it won’t show scratches easily.
The oak frame is protected with IsoGuard®, our timber treatment oil that makes this timber easier to live with without masking its texture. The Chalked Oak finish used on Herston just leaves it with a soft, pale colour that highlights the grain.
Where we see it
Herston’s pale colours look lovely with our sofas covered in unbleached linen, or our Isla velvet in Ermine. In a hallway, hang one of our oak Edinburgh or painted Lavenham mirrors overhead to complement its oak and marble textures.
