Main essence:

Beech tree

It is a semi-hard wood which, unfortunately, is easily wormed, therefore it is considered poor. Due to its light but variegated shades, from blond to reddish, it was nevertheless appreciated by French cabinetmakers. It was mainly used for furniture structures or, as an alternative to walnut, by provincial English furniture makers for popular works, mostly in the 1700s. The noblest use is due to Thonèt, who applied the steam bending of the beech in the making of the furniture, in particular for the chairs that took his name.

Pine tree

The term pine wood indicates the essence from various species of conifers, especially Scots pine, maritime pine and pinea pine. Used since ancient times for the most common furniture, with the advent of the veneer technique, in the 1600s, it was widely used in the construction of the structure of even luxury furniture, which were then covered, decorated (in Venice) or gilded ( in England). It has a color that varies from white to yellow with reddish hues and can be both very soft and very hard.

Oak

Under the name of oak or oak various types of woods derived from plants of the genus quercus are grouped. They are always resistant, hard and compact woods. Oak is lighter than oak, both are used for more rustic furniture or for the interiors of French and English antique furniture. In other processes it was gradually replaced by the advent of exotic woods considered more valuable since the 18th century.
