Our beech wood chairs, made from fine European woods, are available in both modern and traditional designs, and offered in both natural and stained finishes. In the US, European beech is a comparative newcomer, but it is increasingly used for cabinetry and furniture. European beech is a top quality product. It is a hard, strong, heavy wood with a close grain and is normally white, pale cream or pale brown in color. It is weathered or steamed to a pinkish or reddish brown shade.
