Wood veneer is a great material for various types of workplace furniture thanks to its versatility, durability and cost-effectiveness. When used to build boardroom furniture, wood veneer installations offer environmental benefits to business who want to up their status as a green company. But what makes it such a good choice?
Wood Veneer Produces No Waste
Solid wood is sawn from a log while the wood veneer is produced by bonding thinly sliced layers of the tree together, producing maximum yield for a tree and resulting in a lot less waste than solid wood boardroom furniture. Knotty Ash are certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) which suggests that using wood veneer contributes to a better use of raw material as thousands of metres of the wood surface can be produced from one tree.
Versatile in Design
Using wood veneer for boardroom furniture means that each piece will have its own unique pattern according to the tree it was cut from, giving furniture a bespoke, one-off look. There are a number of hardwoods that can be used to create wood veneer including oak, maple, cherry and ash which come in an array of colours to create an impressive and quality suite that will stand the test of time. When you purchase boardroom furniture from Knotty Ash you also have the peace of mind that the wood is being sustainably sourced from managed forests.
