Ash gives a surface an attractive, solid, crisp grain to create a subtle elegance and a timeless look. It brings a bright and airy atmosphere, with an impression of space and openness, and will not overpower your room. Available in all our Mac+Wood designs, this versatile wood can flex to meet the style and function needs of any home.
Ash is a hardwood with a mesmerisingly varying grain, fewer knots and gnarls, and is an absolute pleasure to look at. Its fine finish creates furniture with a subtle presence. The wood is light, dry and distinctive, with a classy feel. It’s almost the antithesis of pine. You won’t find many other houses with an ash table.
Strong Yet Sensitive
The clarity and subtlety of ash shouldn’t deceive you into doubting its durability. Naturally resistant to dents, wear and cracks, it is also surprisingly flexible, rounding it off as an extraordinarily versatile material to use in crafting tables.
In Your Home
Ash might appear light, but it’s tough, dense and resistant to splitting. This makes it perfect for furniture, whether polished, stained or left natural. The grain patterns, with subtle streaks of reddy-browns or olive-greys, will surprise and delight in equal measure. An ash table will offset the shades around your room and provide a counterpoint to the other furniture.
