Difference Between Natural and Pale Finish
Our solid wood furniture is finished with OSMO, a German-branded wood wax oil. Wood wax oil is a kind of penetration finish, the natural colour of a wooden piece will be enriched once it is applied. Even if the wood wax oil is transparent, it still changes more or less the natural tone.

Part 4: Why We Choose Wood Wax Oil
We often get asked about the care tips for solid wood furniture. Will it easily get cracked or scratched?
The anwser is Yes. Solid wood doesn't do well with moisture and heat. But of course there're lots of prevention we can do to maintain our solid wood furniture to its best condition.
Part 3: Wood - Living and Breathing
Applying wood finishing is the last step in the production process, but it's just the beginning for the wooden furniture. Although users may not understand the entire manufacturing process, it’s very crucial to know the type of wood finishing used. It plays a big role in how to care and manage your wooden furniture...
Part 2: Is Solid Wood Better Than Veneer?
Veneer refers to thin slices of wood glued onto engineered wood and below are a few types of engineered wood. Engineered wood：Plywood (solid and strong, multilayered, processed) / Particle Board (lght, inexpensive, unlikely to expand) / MDF (flexible for moulding and decorations, easy to expand when it gets moisted)
Part 1: Grades, Price Points, Wood Types
Although we haven’t been in the solid wood furniture industry for long, but with two decades of experience in quality management, we can tell the quality of a product by our touch. With the accumulated experience we have learnt through this journey, we would like to share our tips with people who loves wood like us but don’t know where to start. As a consumer, not only we have to get informed of what we’re paying for, we should also educate ourselves to have independent and critical thinking as the outcome is affected by many factors. Made in Europe or Japan products may not be as high-quality as you think, in the same way, Made in China may not as bad as we all think. We’re excited to publish 5 mini chapters of Wood Furniture 101, covering topics from wood type and price points, origins and quality control, the debate between solid and wood veneer, and change of consumer perception with wood furniture care. We wish everyone can gain a better understanding about solid wood furniture and get something out of it. In Part 1, we will start with different wood types, grades and price points.
