Information on possible changes to the appearance of the wood used for furniture

Wood is a “living” natural product. This means that in the course of time its colouring may change as a result of exposure to sunlight, fine hairline cracks may arise or resin may leak.

This is entirely normal and does not in any way impair the durability and the value of the furniture.

The ambient temperature and humidity exert a direct influence and may cause changes in the wood.The wood reacts to any fluctuation in ambient temperatures and humidity. Accordingly, it is not possible to rule out tension or warping in the wood.

Moreover, natural materials are characterised by changes in colouring and structures, deformities, irregularities, bruising, knots, resin pockets, hair and cross cracks and warping depending on the type of wood and its origin.

These are signs that the wood is genuine, giving it its natural beauty and making each item of furnish unique.

Ambient temperatures and humidity should be kept as constant as possible to minimise the effects of these natural processes.

The optimum climate for furniture made of solid wood is an ambient temperature of 19° to 23° C and humidity of 50 to 65 percent. This is good for your furniture and also good for your own health.
