The left room is empty while the rooms on the mid and right are each divided by a removable shelf. The tabletop comes in either oak or marble – both materials known for their beautifully vivid structures.

Skagerak is a Danish design company with roots deeply grounded in Scandinavian design and tradition for good craftsmanship. We are owned by Jesper and Vibeke Panduro, who live with their two children in the Northern harbour city of Aalborg. This is where Skagerak was founded too, back in 1976, when the first dreams of making long-lasting design took form.
Skagerak [ˈsɡæjɐʁaɡ] can be a little hard to pronounce; so allow us to explain what it means. From the northern tip of Denmark runs a strait connecting our little country with our Scandinavian neighbors: Sweden and Norway. That strait is called Skagerrak (with two Rs) – and historically it’s been a crucial factor in developing the Nordic region.
TAKING CARE OF THIS PRODUCT
Oil Treated Oak Veneer table top
Oak with the botanical name Quercus spp. grows in most temperate zones. Skagerak oak comes from European forests.
Oak is a sturdy and hardwearing type of wood. Furthermore, the Skagerak oak is FSC 100 % certified or FSC Mix certified. The selection of the wood is extremely careful and all processing is done by hand, so that only the best and most durable pieces of wood are used in production. Oak contains tannins which reduces bacterial growth in the wood.
Cleaning and Maintenance
Your new product comes with an oil treatment. For daily cleaning, use a damp cloth firmly wrung and be sure always to treat the entire surface evenly. The use of cleaning agents for daily cleaning is not recommended. Spills are to be removed immediately to minimize risk of lasting spots.
Oil treated products are to be retreated 1-2 times per year, depending on the use, to keep the protective layer on the surface and maintain the aesthetic qualities from the oil. For future treatment, use a suitable oil treatment product and follow the enclosed instructions carefully. Oil treatments can be purchased on Skagerak.dk. Avoid contact of the oil with other materials to avoid spots and marks.
When retreating the surface, we recommend proceeding with consideration of the Oak Veneer on the table top. The first time the table is treated some of the wood fibres may rise and make the surface feel rough. If necessary lightly sand the surface with 220 grit sanding paper in the direction of the grain to achieve the best result.
Lastly, you should remember to retighten the table’s mounting bolts from time to time.
Note: Always use table mats or trivets when placing hot objects such as pots, pans and candle lights the table.
Marble is a natural rock and one of the oldest building materials to mankind. As this noble and durable stone has been formed over millions of years from heat and pressure, each slab will turn out as a unique piece of art made by nature itself. The Skagerak marble is cut and processed in Italy, but has its place of origin in different countries across the world. Your new product includes green marble with the full name Verde Guatemala and has its origin in India.
Start by wiping off the surface with a dry, soft cloth to remove any dirt particles. For a regular cleaning, all you need is hot water and a soft sponge or cloth. For a deeper cleaning, apply a suitable, acid-neutral marble cleaner. Buff dry with a cotton cloth or chamois leather.
Note: Blot up spills immediately. Marble is a porous material and will etch if you spill acidic substances on it such as citrus, wine, coffee and vinegars. That is also why you should never use acidic or abrasive cleaners.
Remove stubborn stains with a poultice paste.
1) Mix baking soda and water into a thick paste.
2) Apply it to the stained area, cover it with plastic wrap and let it rest for 12-24 hours.
3) Then remove the plastic wrap and wipe off the poultice with a damp cloth.
4) The process might have to be repeated for a perfect result.
You can help protecting the surface from stains and etching by sealing the marble top once or twice a year. Use a suitable marble sealer or simply mix soap flakes with water and apply the foam on the table top for 5 minutes. Dry off with a soft, damp cloth.
