Wood & Veneers

Precious woods of the world

 

Among the things that these fine woods are known for are: a beautiful and expressive color, striking color contrasts, amazing veins, and other unique embossing effects, especially when compared to “normal” appearing wood. Other characteristics of the wood include a noticeable heft, a high-density, a special resistance to pests, rarity, and a high value. The native or exotic woods can be customized to match the furniture in your apartment or serve as a conversation piece in a room. The exclusive wood veneers create a naturally pleasing aesthetic. One refers to thin wood sheets as veneer, which are further processed for different purposes. The word veneer was borrowed in the 16th Century, from the French word “fournir” (meaning to equip or supply). It referred to the process of covering wood with fine thin wooden sheets. The veneer technique was invented in 2900 B.C. by the Egyptians. In Egypt, precious woods were rare. This forced the Egyptians to adopt an economical processing model. Consequently, they cut the wood into thin slats. In 1922, pieces of veneered furniture were found in the grave of King Tutankhamen.
Just as no two leaves on a tree are completely identical, no two sheets of veneer share the exact same appearance either. Signs like coarse or fine grain, bird-eyes and gristles, connations or color nuances have her origin in the growth of the tree. There are not to be looked as a mistake, but a specific feature of the natural material wood. The only guarantee for genuineness and, therefore impossible as a complaint reason. The shown patterns are only one guidance for the approximate color, pattern and structures. Deviations are possible and normal for a natural raw material.
