Like all organic materials, wood is unique to to tree from which it is made, making it an interesting material to employ. Although our suppliers always try to integrate the different pieces that make up their furniture, it is nonetheless quite normal to see variations in colour or grain. These variations highlight the properties of the wood and are a testament to its authenticity.
Chrome should remain glossy in order to look its best. That way, it will continue to shine and reflect the light. This material has excellent resistance to corrosion and perfectly highlights decorative objects.
Distinctive and refined, leather features several singularities that speak to its authenticity. Pleats, wrinkles, marks — these unique details make it a special and standout material that only gets better with time.
Granite is a natural, granular and crystalline stone that is durable and highly resistant to fractures and scratches. As a porous material, granite requires protection from staining, discolouration and deterioration, and because of its porosity, it may react to dark liquids or cleaning products that contain bleach, so it is therefore advisable to take care of the surface and use a trivet or a coaster whenever possible. Due to its natural character, this stone may have slight variations in colour or texture.
Marble and travertine relatively rare stones of great beauty. Each piece is unique, which is one of the most attractive features of these noble and natural materials. More porous than they appear, they require protection against stains, discolouration and deterioration. They are quite susceptible to staining liquids and household products that may discolour or damage their surface — especially if the stains are left on the surface for an extended period of time. The use of coasters is therefore recommended.
Supple and velvety, nubuck has the same qualities as leather. Softer to the touch, it is more fragile and must be carefully maintained. This material owes its exceptional suppleness to the youth of the selected skins and its velvet touch to a buffing on the grain side.
Transparent or opaque, acrylic and plexiglass are used to produce an array of decorative items. They are available in various shapes and colours, allowing you to incorporate them into a variety of decor styles. Moulded, acrylic and plexiglass are quite durable, despite their sensitivity to abrasive materials.
Like all types of leather, suede is a noble material. Raw in appearance and often matte, it is offered in several shades and adds a touch of warmth to any decor. Its flexibility and soft texture make it a much sought-after interior design material, but be advised that it is more fragile than leather.
Due to the wide variety of fibres and weavings, not all fabrics can be maintained in the same way. If you have any doubts regarding the best way to maintain or clean the fabric covering your furniture, do not hesitate to consult a specialist.
Basket weaving is the art of braiding objects using twigs or dyed plant fibers such as wicker, rattan or cane. These objects include seats, backrests, baskets and even woven storage containers with lids.
