The term solid wood furniture is used for that piece of furniture which is made from lumber, it distinguishes itself from engineered wood, as it is made using logs of trees. Engineered wood is produced from the fibres and strands of wood.
Ever thought about the life cycle of solid wood? It is quite surprising to know that from a sapling till its age of maturity it takes around 40 years for the production of solid wood.
The quality of wood varies from region to region and the climatic conditions. Solid wood furniture is made from tree planks, boards, and blocks. Their texture, strength, and weight are directly proportionate to the type of tree from which they are extracted.
We use diverse variety of wood like Steam Beech, White oak and White Ash sourced from across the Europe. We also use wood sourced from Canada, Sal Wood from Malaysia and Teak wood from Burma, Africa and India to deliver the best quality.
Often clients have concerns about wood termites. Now, if in some cases the issue comes up it is easy to resolve this as solid wood is reusable and can be treated if identified at an early stage. To ensure that this doesn’t happen from our end, the wooden blocks go through the process of KD (Kiln Dry).Kiln Dried timber is wood that has been dried using a carefully controlled drying process that regulates temperature and humidity to remove moisture from the wood.
A significant advantage of Kiln Dried wood is that it is less prone to shrinking and expanding because it has a moisture content that is similar to the climate in which it will be installed. In addition to this, the wood is also heat treated to kill the pests. This process is also known as seasoning of wood, which enhances the quality of wood by increasing compression strength, stiffness and binding strength to make it more durable (by preventing cracks which develop overtime). This process of Kiln drying does not involve use of any hazardous chemicals thus making it environment friendly.

Solid wood furniture is a timeless classic in India.
