Fashioned in historic architectural form with contemporary softness and simplicity - the new Belgian Oak collection is in style now and likely to remain so forever.
The casual neo-traditional collection includes 62 skus for the entire home. Pieces are composed of sophisticated shape and movement rarely found in this style category. Designs evoke classical historic designs of Belgium, the Netherlands and Scandinavia.
Belgian Oak is constructed in rustic white oak solids and veneers - lightly cerused, brushed and waxed. Most pieces are available in either of two finishes: French Truffle, a subtle layered deep brown grey, and Charcoal, a very dark grey with dimension and texture.
Elemental accents include:
- Sheets of fireblasted metal in a zinc finish, with rows of tiny nailheads or flattened rivets, on select tops and panels
- Charcoal colored marble, on tabletops
- Forged iron
- Charcoal colored leather
- Hefty hardware in a patinated iron finish.
