Solid oak furniture, made in France

French solid oak furniture

The history of the French oak is closely linked to the history of the country. In the Middle Ages, oak acorns were used to raise pigs, and sometimes for human consumption as flour mixed with cereals. 

Louis XIV and his minister Colbert favored the planting of oak forests, and the symbolic culture of the oak became predominant, associated with royal symbols, the Marian rite and Celtic culture.

Oak is used for noble works such as the frameworks of cathedrals and castles, wine barrels and fine furniture. Recognized the world over, French oak is highly prized on every continent, and is widely exported to Asia. 

Maison GONTIER makes its solid oak furniture exclusively from wood sourced from French sustainably managed forests via PEFC-certified sawmills, whether for dining room furniture, living room furniture, office furniture, bedroom furniture or bookshelves.

Our oak furniture is available for antique-style collections such as Louis Philippe or Louis XVI Directoire, as well as for rustic models full of charm in the TRADITION collection, or more modern or downright contemporary models, often with a light oak finish like the SIENNA or STELLA collections.

Solid oak TV stands, yes of course, but not only...

For many years now, oak TV stands have been in great demand. We also offer oak TV stands in a wide range of styles, from modernized Louis Philippe or Directoire to contemporary designer furniture. You can choose from a wide range of designs and openings, with garage doors, sliding doors or drawers with shock-absorbing runners.

We're also happy to adapt our other cherry and walnut TV stands to make them in oak too, if you wish.


In the same way, every piece of furniture on this site can be made in oak, even if it is presented in another type of wood in its original collection. Don't hesitate to contact us for an oak quote!

Whether you need cabinets, bookcases, sideboards, desks, bedside tables, chests of drawers, consoles, beds, coffee tables, dining tables or display cabinets, we can prepare your oak furniture.  

Each piece of furniture comes with a 5-year guarantee and is delivered to your room in mainland France, with 2 delivery drivers if required. So you can be sure you're getting top-of-the-range, durable, 100% French oak furniture.
