      "With environmental challenges very much in our minds, any new objects we create should be enduring. They should also be beautiful, each in their own way, so their appeal stands the test of time. What our group of brilliant designers and cultural leaders has brought to life, using a sustainable natural material, is a collection of imaginative and wholly unique designs that will, we hope, be used and admired for generations." - Sir John Sorrell CBE

Pohon red oak hanya tumbuh secara alami dan hampir secara eksklusif di kawasan Amerika Utara, meskipun bisa ditanam di tempat lain. Mereka tersebar luas di sebagian besar Amerika Serikat bagian timur di hutan hardwood campuran. Pepohonannya sangat tinggi. Ada banyak sub-spesies, semua dalam klasifikasi pohon ek merah, yang tumbuh dari utara ke selatan; beberapa tinggi di pegunungan dan lainnya di dataran rendah menimbulkan karakteristik yang berbeda. Jadi ada variasi signifikan dalam pohon ek merah tergantung pada lokasi, khususnya antara pohon selatan yang tumbuh lebih lambat dan pohon selatan yang tumbuh lebih cepat. Oak merah dianggap sangat berkelanjutan baik untuk konsumsi domestik maupun ekspor dan, sebagai kelompok spesies terbesar, lebih berlimpah daripada Oak putih.
