Limed Oak Furniture

Limed Oak furniture

Limed oak furniture refers to furniture made from oak wood that has been treated with a liming wax or paste. This process involves applying a mixture of wax and white pigment to the surface of the oak, which fills in the pores and grains of the wood with a white or light-coloured finish.

The liming process was traditionally used to highlight the natural grain of the oak while also creating a protective layer that would prevent the wood from absorbing dirt and moisture. Today, limed oak furniture is often seen as a classic and timeless design element that can add a touch of elegance and sophistication to any space.

Limed oak furniture can come in a variety of styles, from modern and minimalist to more traditional antique furniture with ornate detailing. It is often used for tables, chairs, cabinets, and other types of furniture that are meant to be both functional and decorative.
