This is {not} your grandma's oak

"Fumed" wood (oak and larch shown here) is a refreshing alternative to staining wood. The colour is a permanent feature of the wood and allows for all the natural beauty (grain + flake) to shine rather than be muted by an applied coating.

If you have an existing situation that needs a little wow, black is the ultimate grounding neutral and can be incorporated via counters, accessories, lighting, paint or cabinetry (as illustrated by these fumed beauties).
