Oak dining tables


Do you like oak dining tables? In Belgium you can see a lot of variations of them.
We see rectangular, round or ovalshaped tables. They can be light or dark tinted.
And they look all very solid. You will notice also a lot of variation in legs and basement. And they can be made of new (sometimes antiquated) or recuperated wood.
The wood can be unfinished or bleached or even dark tinted.
The dining tables are seen in classic even as in contemporary interiors.




Here you see planks of antiquated oak wood.

As supports are used trestles here.

A walnut paneled bedroom

Today I would like to show you some pictures that I took from a bedroom that our company Lefèvre Interiors designed and which is finished right now. The room is paneled in walnut wood.
I am so sorry that I have no before pictures but I hope you all will enjoy the after ones.




Walnut paneling



This bedhead wall is divided in a large panel flanked with a mirror on both sides of it.
On the left you can see the entrance door integrated in the woodpaneling.
On both sides of the bed you can notice a night table.


A wall to wall wardrobe. Because of the rather small dimensions of the room, I designed a mirrored doubled door that creates the illusion that this room looks bigger.
That door is not a doorway to another room but behind it, is created a space for hanging clothes.


I have always loved the colour and the warmth that walnut wood can give to a room.









The bedclothes are made-to-measure and we selected a matching fabric for the upholstery of the bedtrunk.



This wall to wall wool carpet, which is very soft, we have chosen after a sample of a carpet that my client had discovered once in a hotelroom.
I have thought to put some cushions on that windowseat.

And the only thing left to do is choosing the right fabric for the curtains!







Later on I will show you pictures of the chosen curtains.
