Frequently asked questions
About our wood furniture
Is your wood furniture plastic-free and metal-free?
Yes, our wood furniture is plastic-free and metal-free. It is made of a single material, European maple plywood.
Where does your wood come from?
Our plywood is made in the Baltic states exclusively from European maple also known as sycamore, sourced in Polish and Slovak forests. All plies are made of the same maple, not just the face plies. The result is a plywood of exceptional hardness with bright edges.
Where is your wood furniture made?
Our plywood furniture is manufactured in the Baltic states using computer-controlled cutting and hand finishing. The hand finishing is essential to achieving smooth edges.
Is plywood as good as solid wood?
Our plywood, made of maple throughout, is as good as solid maple. In fact it is as costly as solid maple.
Plywood makes optimal use of a tree trunk: it is unrolled like a pencil in a sharpener, forming plies which are stacked with the grain perpendicular, glued and pressed industrially. While solid wood warps with changes in humidity, plywood tends to remain flat, which is essential for our furniture.
What finish does your wood furniture have?
All surfaces and edges are sanded and finished with a matte water-based lacquer.
Is your wood furniture safe, strong and with round edges?
Yes, our wood furniture is safe and strong. It will not come apart accidentally. Capacities are stated on the product page.
All edges have a 3 mm radius and all corners are rounded for safety.
Where can your wood furniture be used?
Our wood furniture is made for use indoors, in a domestic or clerical setting (for example, a home or an office). Do not use it outdoors as the variation in humidity may cause it to warp.
Care instructions for our furniture
The maple plywood is already lacquered. Do not apply wood oil. Dry liquids quickly and use coasters to prevent damaging the surface.
The lacquered plywood will initially become slightly more yellow with exposure to sunlight. We recommend that you do not leave objects on the furniture in direct sunlight during this initial period.
To clean, use a damp cloth and a drop of washing-up liquid.
