Wooden furniture can be described as solid wood furniture if all parts, except the back and bottom of drawers, are made entirely of one type of wood, not veneer.
Solid wood retains the natural properties of wood, i.e. it does not retain a static charge. Wood has a natural tendency to receive or release moisture through the open pores. This is very important for the ambient conditions. The porosity of solid wood is in a way a regulator of room humidity.
For quality solid wood furniture, it is necessary to secure the optimal humidity (between 45 and 55%). After buying new wood furniture it is recommended to leave the doors and drawers open during the first few days to prevent the wood from shrinking or expanding.
Solid wood furniture is sensitive to sunlight. In particular, UV radiation from the sun can change the color of the wood. These changes will give the character to the furniture.
The natural colors of different types of wood enhance the visual effect, as well as additional effects of staining and varnishing of wooden furniture.
This furniture is robust and durable and over the years the space it inhabits will only require smaller corrective measures related to the color of the walls and decorative fabrics.
