a symbol of exceptional durability and robustness. It is a very strong, heavy and hard material, and also highly wear-resistant. In cross section, it is characterised by fine grain and intensive colour, from light to dark brown. In time, oak products take on a darker hue, especially on exposure to light. Oak grows mainly in Europe; 1 m3 of oak wood weighs 700-800 kg.
a symbol of exceptional durability and robustness. It is a very strong, heavy and hard material, and also highly wear-resistant. In cross section, it is characterised by fine grain and intensive colour, from light to dark brown. The colour of the wood is applied with a high-quality dye, which is a mix of organic and inorganic pigments. The dye is safe and ecological.
considered by the ancient Romans a lucky tree, a symbol of love, fertility and patience. Unique cohesiveness and toughness ensure multiple technical applications of this kind of wood. Beech furniture can be used for many years without losing its value. In a specialist nomenclature, the colour of beech wood is assessed as yellow-red. Beech grows in most parts of Europe.
the tree is a character in the myths and legends of many ancient peoples, as a god or agent endowed with magical powers.

a tree that can live up to five hundred years. It's high aesthetic value makes it very valuable in the furniture and interior design industry.

American black cherry
is a tree of the heart. Delicate in structure and springy, the wood is used for exclusive interior woodwork.

the wood is a joy to the eye. It comes from trees of the family Moraceae. Iroko is a narrowly alburnous wood; it is characterised by distinct, light yellow colour, which grows darker with time on exposure to air. Yet another quality of the wood is a striped twist of the fibres, which can be observed in the radial section. The wood's asset is also its hardness and compressive strength. This plant grows in the tropical forests of Central Africa, from eastern to the western coast.
the main quality of the merbau wood is exceptional hardness, which makes it durable and very resistant mechanically. Together, these ensure merbau wood's many applications in the furniture industry. It is also resistant to fungi and wood pests, and has very low shrinkage. Thus, merbau tolerates humidity changes well. Characteristic for the merbau are golden-yellow efflorescence of mineral salts on the surface, which makes the wood appear as subtly interlaced with golden thread. The tree grows in southern and northeastern Asia and in the islands of the Pacific.
a tree so valuable that it is called the king of the monsoon forests. Its characteristic natural qualities are: resistance to biological ageing and all weather factors, as well as resistance to chemical agents and soaking with water. Teak is resistant to mechanical damage, shrinkage, as well as bacteria and fungi. Teak is hard wood; its broad range of colours varies from yellow, to red, to dark brown.
