The first step is to analize the work that has to be done in order to decide which type of wood is optimal for the requirements of our client. All our wood is certified and comply with all legal dispositions from our the environment and government entities.
In this step, the wood is treated in special industrial ovens the moisture content level of the wood to 8% – 9%. This process guarantees a structural stability of the wood and the immunization needed to prevent phytosanitary events.
In this department, a wood veneer is applied to any of the different types of laminates that are used, such as MDF, MDP, Plywood etc. This veneer gives the main characteristics to the piece of furniture. We have access to any type of veneer that our clients may need.
In this process, the wood is cutted into pieces of standard measures in order to optimize as best as possible this natural resource.
This is the stage where the pieces of wood are transformed into a desired final shape and size, so that they can be assembled later on. We use high technology machines such as CNC lathes, routers drillers etc.
The assembly process is the phase in which the individual pieces are putted together to build the final furniture piece. Once the assembly process has been successfully completed, our quality department evaluates endurance and stability.
This process is very important, as a perfect sanding is the base of a high-quality furniture finish. We use different kind of abrasives, depending on the detail requirement of the piece. The appropriate sabding prepares the surface of the wood for the next step.
This is the phase in which the furniture receives the final finish. To make sure that every piece has the beauty, endurance and protection that is required, the surface must be treated with several operations: sealers, dying, glazie, lacquer, among others. All of our finishes are made of polyester resins, known for their resistance, durability and ecofriendly properties. We develop and produce our own paint.

This process is accomplished by expert s, that with years of experience and knowledge upholster our furniture with fabrics specified by our Clients, using foams that, giving confort and durability, enhance the beauty of our furniture.
