Wood is a living material that expands and contracts. Therefore, small changes can occur in wood and wood veneer under the influence of light, humidity and daily use. Differences in colour, pattern and structure give wood character. Make sure that the humidity indoors remains stable to restrict the expansion and contraction of your wooden furniture. The humidity level should be kept between 40 and 60%, at a room temperature between 15 and 24°C. Place your furniture at least 2 metres from a direct source of heat (radiator, fireplace or stove), taking the direction of the radiated heat into account.
