Wood: All about the value of an excellent raw material
Arredamenti Fagnini, located in the heart of Florence, has been an icon of excellence for more than 40 years in the design and manufacture of kitchens, custom-made furniture and wooden furnishings.
A distinctive element that has made this company a benchmark in the industry, in addition to the craftsmanship of its artisans, is undoubtedly the choice of raw materials.
Solid Oak: Sturdiness and Elegance
Solid oak wood is one of the most popular and beloved materials for furniture and flooring construction. This type of wood combines: natural beauty, superior strength and durability. Oak is a compact and hard wood that is ideal for making high-strength furniture and flooring. It is highly valued for the natural beauty of its grain, which varies in color from brown to yellow, a shade that tends to lighten over time.
Solid oak wood is renowned for its exceptional durability and resistance to wear and tear, such as stains and scratches, making it a perfect material for floors and rooms, such as the kitchen or dining room, that are generally highly frequented.
In addition, oak is a very versatile wood and suits all styles of furniture. Whether you prefer a rustic and traditional or modern style, solid oak is the perfect choice. Although solid oak may have a slightly higher initial cost than other materials, it should be considered as a long-term investment. Its durability means you won’t have to worry about replacing furniture frequently, saving you considerable time and money in the long run, also increasing the value of the property.
Multilayer Panels: A synthesis of stability and creativity
Multilayer panels is a semi-finished product made by overlapping several layers of wood veneers glued together. The layers should be overlaid so that the fibers result in an alternating direction in order to provide the panel with strong bending strength and more stability.
Plywood panels vary in size, glue, essence, fnish and thickness.In this regard, it is worth specifying that plywood is plywood, but with a maximum thickness of 5 millimeters, above which it is called genuine plywood.
Plywood, also called semi-finished wood, has definite characteristics that distinguish it from other types of panels. To begin with, since it is indeed very flexible, it can be worked with great ease and installed without much effort.In addition, its stability makes it particularly resistant to bending and thus protects it from the risks of warping and makes it able to withstand the strongest shocks, but without appearing heavy.
Finally, plywood panels are hygroscopic, that is, they promote the passage of moisture and not accumulation. Of course, these characteristics could vary significantly depending on the types of plywood, the number of wood slabs, and other elements, such as the glue used to hold the panel together.
To sum up, Arredamenti Fagnini has made material selection and quality true cornerstones. Solid oak and plywood panels, combined with the craftsmanship of its artisans, represent the very essence of this commitment.
