Habufa have designed this range to take into account various aspects of the natural material they use.
Primarily most British manufacturers and retailers, actually discard any part of the oak that shows any serious natural markings. This has led to a tremendous amount of wastage, in Habufa's view, and ours, this is wrong.
The absolute beauty of Oak is its natural structure, the knots and cracks add to its unique appearance and enhance the sheer beauty. The inherent strength and quality will not suffer. Life expectancy of an oak table is, well dare we mention, for ever. Have you seen any medieval oak tables, probably yes.
I suppose the best thing to say is that succeeding generations may well fight over ownership.
Please look carefully at the pictures on this guide, they are produced by Habufa, so sometimes they lose a little in spelling and pronunciation. (well how is your Dutch spelling)
When choosing this range you must take in to account these points, if all you see is the true beauty of a natural material then go for it. There are five colours, a choice of legs and various options you can select.
