Top Quality Veneer
If you hear the term wood veneer and instantly think of cheap, thin, flat-pack furniture, it’s time you thought again! Wood veneers are an excellent material choice for many furniture pieces due to their clean look and the variety of colors and styles available. Wood veneer is actually far better for the environment. As it’s solid wood sliced into multiple pieces, it means much more can be made out of one piece of wood. Meaning less trees, which is always a good thing. There are also lots of design possibilities for wood veneer furniture. Since veneer is far thinner than solid wood, it allows designs and arrangements of the wood that solid wood just couldn’t achieve. Good quality wood veneer furniture is also very stable. This is because the veneer is glued to a stable substrate, so the surface isn’t prone to warping or splitting. Like with solid wood, there are a whole variety of wood veneer finishes available, each with their own features and benefits. Here are our top 3 wood veneer picks, each with the look that they’ll help to create in your home.
Made to Last
Each forest is different, just as every tree is different: the roughness of the bark, the scent of resins, the strength of the wood, its veins, the texture of its living fabric, its clear personality. Finding the most sustainable way to make furniture for you, this is what we do at POET. You must have strong legs, and hands as big as the heart, to be a lumberjack. Our top quality veneers are made to withstand the test of time and weather conditions.
Steel is classed as one of the most suitable metals for recycling as its condition requires little maintenance, the end-of-life condition is 100% recyclable and it can be reused an infinite amount of times. Once steel is produced it becomes a permanent resource because it is 100% recyclable without loss of quality and has a potentially endless life cycle. Its combination of strength, recyclability, availability, versatility and affordability makes steel unique.
Stainless steel is playing an important role in sustainable design and alternative energy evolution. Stainless steel is 100% recyclable into the same product with no reduction in quality. Stainless steel is the “green material” par excellence and is infinitely recyclable. Not only regards to the intrinsic ability to be completely recycled but also because of the absence of polluting elements both during the active life of the metal and during the scrapping and recovery. Thanks to the fact that the production processes of stainless steel requires much less power consumption than the processing and manufacturing of other metals. Thanks to the characteristic rust resistance of stainless steel, this material does not need further coverings or coatings like paint, that are not easily disposable once scrapped, and which would produce toxic fumes in the event of combustion.
Glass is often referred to as a Green product, because the main component to making glass is Silica. Found in sand, Silica is considered a renewable and never ending resource. When glass breaks down, it remains safe and stable, and releases no harmful chemicals into the soil. So even when glass isn't recycled, it does minimal harm to the environment. Of course, when it comes to recycling, glass is among the most recyclable materials on the planet – 100 percent recyclable, in fact. It has an unlimited life and can be melted and recycled endlessly to make new glass products with no loss in quality. In the glass making process, we can use up to 90% of recycled glass, what means we can reduce the use of virgin raw materials and energy in the glassmaking process.
We use sustainable materials which are 100% free from hazardous chemicals, produced with minimal environmental impact. This eco-friendly approach allows you to use our product with a good conscience.
