Case Study: Long lifecycle of solid wood furniture; What it says about your values
All of the furniture we make is custom because our clients are unique and can efficiently have a solution that fits their bigger picture. Not only is the furniture custom sized, stylized and made to your specifications, we never build any surplus that gets thrown away because it was last season. We build from solid wood that is durable and can withstand years of use. Unlike particle board and plywood that swells with moisture, well treated solid wood furniture is more durable. Solid wood is used in furniture making for most of our human civilization. It’s no wonder the antiques and relics that you see in museums are made from solid wood. Treated with mineral oils, they can withstand moisture and prevent water damage.
We use OSMO Clear Matte for the top coat because it feels really nice and protects the wood for a really long time. Refinishing is easier than lacquer. Just lightly sand down to the wood and reapply the finish as needed. It is also made from natural ingredients. The oils and finishes from OSMO is developed and made in Germany. You can read about their certifications and sustainability pledge on their website.
