Solid wood tabletops: natural beauty for your home
Discover the timeless elegance of solid wood tabletops at ekomia. Customised and made with love for nature.
Why solid wood table tops?
Solid wood tabletops are more than just pieces of furniture. They tell stories through their grains and characteristic features of the wood. Each tabletop is unique and gives your room a warm atmosphere. Unlike synthetic materials, solid wood tabletops exude a natural beauty that only increases in value over time.
The benefits of naturally oiled tabletops
At ekomia you will find naturally oiled solid wood table tops, which not only impress visually, but also convince functionally. Due to the oiling, the structure of the wood is preserved and it feels pleasant. In addition, the oil protects the wood from moisture and small scratches, which increases the longevity of your tabletop.
What is the best wood for a table top?
The right choice of wood is a matter of personal taste and style. At ekomia, we offer a selection of high-quality woods that are perfect for tabletops:
Oak and wild oak table tops
Oak is one of the most well-known wood species and valued for its strength and durability. Oak wood has a dark brown to light brown coloring with subtle grain and a few only small knots. Freshly cut, it is much lighter in color, which can be obtained with a light-colored furniture oil.
Table tops made of wild oak shows a lively grain with knotholes and natural wood features. When it comes to wood grading, wild oak tends to have darker parts selected. Dark color and distinctive grain give the wood a rustic and authentic character.
Table tops made of ash
Ash is a rather light wood with a distinctive dark core. Ash has high strength and elasticity. At ekomia we use ash core wood for table tops because of its unique grain, for other furniture we use only the light parts.
Beech and beech heartwood table tops
Beech impresses with its light, slightly reddish color and a smooth surface. The grain is very uniform and subtle. It is the wood with the best price-performance ratio among hardwoods.
Beech heartwood refers to the darker core wood of the tree. It features a more intense color and distinctive grain. Beech furniture is timeless and fits a variety of interior styles, from classic to modern.
Walnut Table Tops
Walnut wood is known for its dark, refined appearance. It has a rich brown color with an eye-catching grain, and often features natural characteristics such as swirls and color variations
At ekomia, we'll be happy to advise you which wood is best for you. You can also order our samplebox and take a closer look at all wood types.
How thick does table top need to be?
The thickness of the table top depends on its size. The longer the table, the thicker it should be. For tables up to 180 cm long, a thickness of 2.5 cm would be sufficient. But since we offer table tops up to 300 cm in length, our table tops are 3 cm thick.
Burr strips: the quality feature of solid wood table tops
Solid wood is a natural product. The wood continues to "work" even after processing. It expands, contracts again, absorbs moisture and releases moisture again - depending on the climate and season. With solid wood panels, this can cause the panel to warp and become uneven. To prevent this, trims or burr strips (strips of wood or steel that are inserted into the wood) are used. At ekomia, we use two or more burr strips made of metal on all table tops so that they keep their shape permanently.

Configure your custom solid wood table tops
Choose your wood species
First, pick the type of wood that appeals to you the most. Oak is a real classic among the available materials. Ash shows a little lighter and has a concise grain. Wild oak and walnut are our elegant beauties. Beech has a reddish undertone, heartwood beech has dark color inclusions.
Decide on a surface treatment
Decide on a colorless or a light ecological oiling. The light oil is enriched with white color pigments. This gives the wood a slightly limed, lighter look. A colorless, natural wood oil treatment emphasizes the grain.
No matter which choice you make: Due to the oiling, our table tops retain their open-pored surface and thus their natural properties. The wood can absorb and release moisture from the air. This has a positive effect on the indoor climate.
Choose your edge design
We manufacture the edge grinding of your table according to your wishes. Choose between square edges and rounded corners. We also offer you two intermediate shapes that give the table top an individual look, such as the Swiss edge.
Decide if you want more color with linoleum
If you want to add some color to your home, linoleum surface is a great option. Our linoleum is a natural product made from renewable resources and also has a pleasant, warm feel and is easy to clean. Choose one of the elegant dark colors or a gaudy light shade.
