Oakâme, a French company based in the North of France, designs unique, elegant, ecological furniture, Made in France. Our indoor and outdoor furniture, is crafted from superior quality oak beams, recovered from 19th and 20th century buildings.
Wood: a material inspiring both warmth and strength. Oak: the noblest of trees, both resistant and timeless. Oakâme bears witness to time. Behind every solid oak beam lies a hidden story; stories that are interwoven into each new piece of furniture.
To preserve their singularity, we not only conserve the original oak appearance, but also the traces left by the passage of time. The fine grooves and hand-carved notches are tinged with tobacco hues and the grey tones of aged wood. The production process pays homage to their past.
To ensure the traceability of the timber, we have integrated an innovative new technology. Oakâme furniture has an NFC tag enabling users to access detailed technical information, revealing its history, characteristics and origin, through a mobile portal.
Oakâme is in tune with the times. We craft intelligent furniture, selecting quality material, ensuring ecological production. We respond to the contemporary challenges facing our society: ecology, new technology and modernity.
Oakâme combines these issues to provide you with a range of luxury, innovative furniture adapted for indoor and outdoor use.
We are committed to limiting the creation of new materials on the planet. Our timber suppliers are PEFC certified to ensure sustainable forest management that does not cause deforestation. We have also carefully selected fabric made from recycled plastic bottles and a yarn with a low environmental impact.
Combining recycled materials gives Oakâme's designs an industrial look while preserving the craftsmanship which is the basis of our furniture’s unique finish.
OUR STORY & OUR FOUNDERS
Having grown up surrounded by carpentry, Hugo knew his calling from a young age. In his garage in Lille, he started building furniture from recycled materials for his own house. Pallets quickly made way for other noble wood, particularly oak, as he developed his technique, vision and creations.
Christopher, who is both curious and adventurous by nature, brings his analytical and expert eye to the diverse markets that he studies meticulously. He dedicates his time to researching and contrasting the information available around him, in search of hidden treasure.
The workshop in Lille has become their private hub and creative space. Passion, expertise and know-how meet daily, to develop the best formula for each Oakâme product.
Oakâme aims to guarantee the durability of each piece of furniture, so we select high quality and resistant materials. The natural robustness of oak beams and the choice of cushion filling, using pioneering production technologies, ensure that the furniture will last at least 10 years from the date of manufacture.
Far from being industrially produced, Oakâme furniture shows off its Made in France craftsmanship. From the construction of each solid oak structure, through to making the cushion covers: we extol the excellence and uniqueness of our meticulously hand-crafted products, whose finishing touches highlight their singular, simple and elegant designs.
Oakâme is serious about sustainable development and eco-responsible production. We commit to the planet through the use of recycled materials. Our fabrics are partly made from plastic bottles. To achieve this, we source from innovative companies with the same philosophy, based on the circular economy.
