How to choose the right timber for your dining table?

The timber you choose for your Dining Table should be hardwearing and suitable for daily use.

The reason we’re committed to these materials is because it guarantees a longer lasting product which can withstand continued use for many years. Enjoy entertaining Family and Friends around a quality table that’s been made with your lifestyle in mind.


Choice of Timber

One of the key components to having Custom Dining Room Furniture, is your choice of timber. As we use natural hardwoods for all of our Dining Tables, with each timber selection comes a unique grain variation. This beautiful natural detail varies from piece to piece, therefore making your table unique (regardless of other details). Not only do we find this to be pretty special, but our customers do too. Our large Furniture Store has a beautiful selection of different timbers on display for you to see and appreciate up close.

But of course, there’s more to be considered when Customising your Dining Table. Some being size, quality and shape – and these are so personal to everyone. This is why we take the time to carefully consider all specifications with our customers, to eliminate any concerns and ensure the outcome of their Custom Furniture is ideal for their space.

And, with all of our furniture pieces being individually hand crafted, it means whatever you order will be carefully crafted just for you. Something else we think is pretty special…


Durability and Usage

Selecting the right timber involves considering its durability and suitability for daily use. Our commitment to use only the highest quality hardwood timbers, ensures a product that withstands the test of time and daily activities. A Nordic Design Furniture dining table is built to last with traditional craftsmanship.


Matching Timber to Your Home Aesthetic

The timber you choose should harmonise with your home’s overall design and color palette. Whether you’re drawn to the warmth of richer timbers such as Tasmanian Blackwood or the modern, airy feel of lighter woods like Tasmanian Oak, the right choice will enhance the beauty and cohesion of your dining space.


High Quality Timber Selection

At Nordic Design we are proud to offer the highest quality Hardwood Timbers to our customers. Not only does it offer a beautiful aesthetic, but it ensures a quality product as well.

Some of the timbers we offer include Tasmanian Blackwood, Tasmanian Oak, Victorian Mountain Ash, Western Australian Jarrah, Tasmanian Silver Wattle or American Oak. Alternatively, if you have existing furniture pieces you’d like to match, our specialist polishers can closely match colour tones. So in other words, the colour options are endless…

The timber you choose will also heavily impact the overall look and feel of your Dining Space. Darker timbers such as Tasmanian Blackwood or Jarrah have deeper tones and tend to suit rooms with character and traditional features. If you prefer a Modern look that offers and light and airy feel, a choice of Mountain Ash or American Oak might be more suitable due to the consistent grain and softer undertones. Or as mentioned, we can tone timbers to a specific colour if you have something quite specific in mind.
