Finishes of wooden tables
When choosing a new wooden table you have a lot to choose from. Are you sure about the model, type of wood and size it will be? Then you still have the finish of the wood to choose. With the overview below we help you choose between the different wood finishes that are possible for our Sav & Okse tables.
Matt lacquered or oiled table

HPL or Fenix table top
With some models of tables it is possible to have an HPL or Fenix top layer applied to the tabletop. This is possible as standard with the Rikke and Tomrer table.
