January Bench

By Nikari


  • Description

    There are great tree species growing in the Finnish forests. They are all more than suitable for research and design product material. For instance, the common idea of Finnish pine has been a bit incorrect, probably because of the qualities of mass-produced furniture or furnishings made of it. By sourcing the logs carefully one can find very noble pine wood to be used beautifully in the furniture.

    Care Instructions:
    Furniture made of solid wood has many esthetic and performance related benefits, which need to be maintained with proper care. Please notice, that cold and dry winter climate together with the heating indoors creates a very dry environment which can be unhealthy for people as well as the furniture of the house. Also, during very humid months the furniture may suffer without proper care.

    In dry winter climate, the wood may shrink. This causes cracks, which is a very natural reaction of the wood to its environment. This kind of cracks will usually disappear when the climate turns more humid and the wood swells. However, if you notice a crack between two planks showing a separation of a glue line, please contact us. In very humid times the wood might swell and cause problems with moving parts such as drawers. In these cases, the wood will slowly shrink back to original dimensions once the climate becomes dryer.
