4 things you wanted to know about natural veneer, but never asked
There are two main types of veneers – it can be a modified material – created with human interference, with repetitive graining and uniform dyeing produced in an artificial way, and natural veneer.
Working on the Norwegian Wood collection, we decided to use natural veneer, which is an authentic and noble material created in a natural way.
But what is natural veneer anyway and what are its characteristics? We’ve highlighted 4 crucial things to know about veneers before the purchase. Find out what is behind its imperfect beauty.
The element of nature in your home
The fronts from the Norwegian Wood collection are finished with natural veneer – a material that is obtained from thin slices of tree trunks, thanks to which its structure retains the character and beauty of real wood. It is sustainable, strong, and durable.
The unpredictability of nature
Just like in nature every tree is different, the veneer produced from that tree will also be different in each case. Thus, specific orders can have a unique shade of veneer. Imperfections occurring in the material are not a defect, but a natural feature emphasizing the character of the wood.
The veneer selection
All of our veneers are sourced from European forests which are managed in a sustainable way. For our collection, we decided to work with oak, walnut, and birch veneers.
The natural veneer is a timeless choice and never goes out of style. Our veneer palette goes from subtle, light tones to dark and strong feels. All of them are instant classics.
