Wood – a living material

The wooden components of our furniture are made from teak, pine or South American oak and are always of the highest quality. This allows our furniture to age gracefully, even gaining in beauty when used frequently. Just like any other living material, the wood is affected by humidity levels, direct sunlight and more. If you care for your furniture, you will be able to enjoy the lustrous wood finish for many years to come, even though kept outdoors.

Not all pine is created equal. Since our furniture is to be of the highest quality, we only use timber with standing annual rings in our pine furniture. This means that the annual rings are parallel to the short side, meaning no risk of the planks warping. This also ensures a harder product surface, meaning wooden components that better retain their shape and are less prone to cracking.

We care about our trees

When buying one of our products, naturally you are entitled to know where the material comes from and how it was produced. This is why we work with certification and ecolabelling, enabling you to always track the material throughout the entire production chain, from raw material to finished product.

The wooden components of our furniture have environmental certificates from two leading organizations who share our view of responsible forestry. These certificates guarantee that the materials in the products you buy from us always meet high social and environmental standards:
